Although the press has repeatedly sounded the idea that the market growth is largely due to the investment in real estate, but the real situation is somewhat different - the majority of families own only 1 unit of property - the apartment or house was 89.7%. Only 9.1 percent pointed to two pieces of real estate, three - 0,6% of the respondents. It should be noted that in half of the cases a second property of the Ukrainians - is home. Generally, with rare exceptions, the happy owners of several pieces of real estate owned real estate of various kinds. The owners of several apartments is an exception, and those who have but flats have a cottage or house in the village, is a common phenomenon.Currently, on average, one living in the apartment family has 2.25 bathrooms, total area of the apartment is 51.7 sq. m., and living with 35.8 sq. m. According to the new Ukrainian regulations on each family member must have a minimum of 21 sq m of 10.5 square meters per family. Estimated average size of the apartment, based on average family size, would have to 65.1 sq. m. That is now the average apartment has an area of 13.4 sq m (or 1/5) is less than the standard.The differences in housing between residents of different regions of the country are small and do not exceed 10%. Strangely enough, but the worst living conditions among residents of apartments in Kiev - the least number of rooms, least of all the common and living area. And this despite the fact that the average size of apartments in new buildings in the capital has already exceeded 100 sqmObvious difference in housing conditions observed in the groups according to the level of well-being: live in apartments smaller total area and with a smaller number of rooms. However, in groups with high incomes lower performance in terms of area per family member. The rationale for such an oddity is quite simple - poor families are smaller, very often it is the elderly - couple or single pensioners.Interestingly, families with different incomes do not differ according to the ownership structure of the main types of real estate. Of course, among people with above-average incomes more than those who owns an apartment or private house, but only a few percent. Unlike the size of the property itself, its presence in the property almost not correlated with income. But with the housing situation is quite different. As income increases the proportion of households owning summer houses, rustic houses grows significantly.Even the data show that the situation with real estate in Ukraine is contradictory: on the one hand, housing is small in size, and about the European standards of living space per person and can't remember the other - the absolute majority of families in Ukraine possess at least the essential residential real estate. Yes, and owners of more than one unit of real estate phenomenon is quite ordinary.And those 10 million square meters.
