The average rental price for apartments in Kiev in August rose 4.8 percent to $ 11 per square meter, according to a study by address.ua.
According to the director of City Development Solutions Roman Herasymchuk, the median rental price in Kiev for the first time since the beginning of the year has exceeded $ 500 per object.
“The main reasons for the growth can be called the processes of economic recovery and the return of the population to the format of full-time work and study, which caused a significant seasonal increase in prices,” said the expert.
So, the average rental price of a square meter of a one-room apartment in August was $ 12.50, a two-room apartment $ 11, a three-room apartment $ 9.
According to the portal, the most expensive district of Kiev is Pechersky, where the median price is $ 1,101, or $ 16 per square meter. The Shevchenkivsky district comes in second with $ 774 per apartment ($ 12 per square meter). Third place is occupied by the Holosiyivsky district with $ 677 per object ($ 12 per square meter). The minimum median price for renting an apartment is registered in the Desniansky district – $ 372 per apartment, or $ 7 per square meter.
“The price leaders are traditionally the districts of Pechersky, Shevchenkivsky and Holosiyivsky, and in the latter two, the median price has increased by 21% and 18%, respectively. This is due more to the leaching of apartments in the lower price segment in these neighborhoods than to the actual rise in prices, ”Herasymchuk said.
In the structure of the offer, the main volume consists of studios (47%), which represent 45% of requests. Two-room apartments account for around 35% of the demand, while three-room apartments account for 15%.
