“Since the beginning of 2019, we can note a significant revival of consumer interest in cottages. According to our data, today in the structure of sales of suburban housing, the purchase of cottages, following one-room apartments, occupies the second line in popularity. At the end of May, the quantitative indicator of acquisitions of private houses is about 12%, and by the end of the year it can increase to 15%. This is a significant result, because a year ago the share of cottages did not exceed 5% of the total number of acquisitions in the suburbs of Kiev. The growing popularity of cottages is caused, first of all, by the competitive price and tangible advantages of such a purchase compared to apartments. Today we can state that the cost of a cottage with an area of ​​100 square meters. m is commensurate with the price, for example, of a 60-meter apartment in any of the sleeping areas of Kiev, ”cites figures Vladislav Kononov, managing partner of AVM Development Group.

In addition, passive income from investing in buying a house can reach up to 15% annually, ”Kononov adds.
