WHO WE ARE
Interested in creating your own property portfolio?CONTACT US
Ilya Prikhodko, 33, Kiev
I've been investing in real estate all my adult life, but over time it takes more and more effort to keep things in order. Property investing began as a hobby, and I enjoyed the hunt, but the more property I acquired, the more admin I had to take care of every month. DGY now handles all of my tenants, paperwork and maintenance, allowing me to do what I do best. Kyiv's been good to me, and I'm now expanding into the US market thanks to this.
Menachem Levi, 42, Israel
Already with a reasonably sized portfolio spread across several EU capitals, when I visited Kyiv last year, I was shocked at the quality of property and prices on offer. Since Ukraine isn't the EU, I was wary of investing here due to not understanding the language and laws. I found DGY's website, got in touch and haven't looked back. Always professional, easy to deal with and reasonable prices for their services.
Shmuli Friedman, 48, Israel
I quit my job over 10 years ago to become a full time investor but had never invested outside of my homeland until I found DGY. Something about Kyiv appealed to me; I had visited friends a few years earlier and saw how the city was changing. My feeling was that big things were about to happen, and I wanted to get involved as early as possible. DGY helped me to get started, and even though I have a good understanding of the market now, I still listen to their advice and use their team for my legal and accounting. Highly recommend.
Do I need to exchange my local currency into UAH to buy real estate in Ukraine?
Yes, the actual transaction is always carried out in UAH. However, the price is fixed in USD, so Ukrainian hryvnia fluctuations will not affect the final price.
Is it safe to close the deal in Ukrainian currency? Is UAH sustainable to inflation?
We negotiate the price in USD and close the deal in dollars. The actual transaction is made in hryvnia but the price for the property is fixed in USD so any hryvnia fluctuations won’t affect the end price in dollars that the investor pays.
Are property prices stable in Ukraine?
We only deal with premium properties in Ukraine. This is a virtual assurance that regardless of the financial climate and the general state of the Ukrainian economy, the demand for such properties will remain constant. For example, the "Slavutich" luxury apartment complex is a premium waterfront property that overlooks the Dniepr. This property is granted to grow in value by double digits annually.
How much money do I need to start investing?
In our experience, the optimal starter amount to invest in real estate in Ukraine is $80,000. This buys you a prime two-bedroom apt in a well-situated near-luxury apartment house - a perfect beginning of your life as a real estate investor in Ukraine.
What if competitors begin building a more appealing building nearby and my property value drops?
We choose the best projects whose value will only rise once construction is complete. For example, the Slavutych project is essentially a waterfront property. To build anything closer to water and block your amazing view of the Dnieper river is physically impossible

Real estate investment opportunities in Ukraine
When an investor decides to invest in real estate in Ukraine, the most affordable way to attain stable passive income is through buying residential real estate. Investors can expect to receive a regular monthly payment from their tenants at a fixed monthly amount, unaffected by inflation or other unforeseen circumstances. The amount of rental income will vary depending on the size, type of property and location. For example, buying an apartment in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv is beneficial to investors due to offering a large working population, central location and affordable prices. Hence, the minimum price of renting a decent one-bedroom apartment in Shevchenkivskyi District will be around $1000 per month in 2021, followed by Pecherskyi District with a cost of $850 per month. Besides, investing in real estate in Ukraine annually brings clever investors up to 15% of yield, attracting many business people every year.
Properties for investments in Ukraine
Ukraine has a giant sector for real estate investing. Businessmen who come there all over the world often choose between investing in residential and commercial properties. The main advantage of buying property in Ukraine is the affordability of prices on the houses and apartments. For instance, if you invest in real estate in a historical district, a luxurious apartment will cost you around $80k only.
How to invest in Ukrainian Real Estate
In order to invest in Ukrainian real estate, you should take into account a list of crucial factors. The first one is to choose what kind of realty you are going to invest in: residential or commercial. It is vital as it should comply with Ukrainian real estate law.
