According to the company , for the full year, prices rose by 7-8%, and on 1 September 2008, the average price of a house in a civilized town was $437,8 thousand - $1,76 thousand for sq. m. As reported by the CEO of Link Development Yaroslav Tsukanov, the basis of this paradoxical phenomenon is the increase in construction costs (materials, labor, payments to local authorities, etc.), as well as the desire of developers to increase the profitability of their projects because of the surge in terms of their implementation and the frustration of fiscal revenues. At the same time, the expert notes that the cost growth was very uneven and affect not more than a fifth of the projects. - said Mr. Tsukanov.Sentence structure of cottages near KievSuch towns, according to the interviewed experts, steel (both - Kyiv region) and (Brovary direction) in which, contrary to the overall trend in the market today, the most successful are building and selling.

But the attention of potential customers they attract. - says Yaroslav Tsukanov. The main reasons for freezing the most part put up for sale objects, according to Vladimir Stepenko, is the increased competition, the lack of funding and initial problems with sales due to errors in planning.What to expectAnalyzing immediate prospects of the market of cottage townships, experts agree that even under the most optimistic sales results this year (1.4 to 1.7 million households) developers will be able to realize only a fifth of the already exposed cottages (8.4 thousand). Considering that in the next year or two, according to previously made statements must begin sale in 55 projects, with a total Seating capacity of 12 thousand households, with the current level of demand for their implementation will take about 15 years. On this basis, Andrey Boldarev believes that will remain unfulfilled, about half of the announced projects.

But the sad consequences are not excluded and for buyers who have invested money in a relatively successful projects. According to the President of Ukrainian real estate group Sergey Klimenko, despite its apparent success, the developers of these towns also have problems with financing schedule, so part of them will be forced to reduce the number of houses in the composition of the towns, and most importantly - to save on infrastructure. That is promised in the large towns, shopping centres, swimming pools, Parking lots, hotels, etc., the future owners of the houses can not wait.According to Anna Skripkina, in the near future in the market of cottage townships expect a further reduction of effective demand and changes its structure. - said the expert.

According to Vladimir Stepenko, in those towns that initially have inflated the value of homes, it is possible to expect falling of the prices for 15-20% or to the level of average. With this view agrees Andrey Boldarev, who notes that in unsuccessful projects would be expected sagging prices by 20-40%, however, it is likely that many developers are more likely to decide in favor of stopping the implementation of projects.Experts also agree that the next six months will be for the market of cottage townships time active sales projects among other developers. For example, recently about the decision to get rid of the projects in the field of cottage property stated (sells the project is in town.
