Capitalization and real estate cost growth over the years here is certain to happen.
The question is only where one should buy an apartment for him/herself or for investment in Podol.

Most often these are run-down and emergency-status houses with serious problems as far their engineering infrastructure is concerned. Quite often apartments and entrances are in a very poor condition. Acquiring such option, be ready to spend quite an amount of money on capital repairs. Besides that, you will have just to hope that your neighbour at the staircase will not sell his/her apartment for an office, since social environment in such buildings in not very uniform.

Such facilities, in particular, include a new business-class Housing Complex ‘Podol Grad Vintage’ built by the developer Edelburg Development. The Housing Complex is located in the very centre of Podol, where the famous Valy (Walls) begin.
The design code of the Housing Complex has been arranged in the image and likeness of well-known architectural ensembles of the old Podol, but in modern interpretation. The image of the new building contains direct references to the features characteristic of the classical tradition in the real estate of the district.
These are both moderate number of storeys, which is largely pre-determined by the city planning restrictions and urbanistic landscape, and upheld proportions of window openings, and outlining of storeys with architectural means.
The customer is offered a choice of 28 planning concepts, as well as an opportunity to choose windows: standard, oriel or round-headed windows, or that may also well be a French balcony. The type of recessed balcony parapet is also offered to be made at the customer’s discretion, since there are several variants of forged grills with different ornaments or stair posts. Certainly, you will not have to choose in the literal sense of the word, the above tricks are already envisaged by the design and they will differ depending on the storey and the section of the complex.
There are one-room, two-room and three-room apartments on sale, from 52 to 120 sq.m. They all contain a spatial kitchen-diner, a cloakroom area, wide rooms of a regular shape, high ceilings of 3 m, minimum one balcony or recessed balcony. And in the apartments on the upper storey there are also full-fledged terraces, where a garden or a private lounge area can be arranged.
Depending on the personal need, one may easily select something (s)he likes from an abundance of options. If you want to buy housing in the centre to lease it to foreign tourists and guests of the capital, it is worth paying close attention to 1-room apartments from 52 sq.m. upwards. It is such areas in the centre, with well-designed space ergonomics, within walking distance to the underground, that are sought for by renters for several nights.
For long-term lease and acquisition for living there it is worth looking at 2-room and 3-room lots. The customer is offered selection of an ideal option in terms of the correlation between the apartment location in relation to compass points, the area of kitchen-diner and room design.

That is what contributes to sustainable consumer demand for it.
