You must admit that not many people can identify themselves as real estate experts. Especially with no prior experience to deal with related issues, or due to renting apartments for a long time. However, when such occasion comes, you have to become some kind of an expert for yourself and for your close ones.
Today we’ll try to help you by telling about different segments of residential property available in Kyiv and its suburb. We also are going to talk about the best newbuilds of the capital city in those very segments.
1. Economy Class Residential Property
Some of the distinguishing features of an apartment in an economy class new housing development would be:
- number of stories – 9 to 18 floors, up to 8 apartments per stairwell per floor;
- not-too-high ceilings – 2.5-2.7 m2 (8.2 – 8.85 feet);
- simplicity and elegance of floor plans and general project;
- floor space of one-room and two-room apartments is from 35 to 60 square meters (377 to 645 square feet);

Besides that, Economy Class apartments don’t have any additional facilities, such as one more restroom or a closet. As for the building and complex amenities, here you may lack parking spaces, the territory has neither fencing nor security.
