In August… people started investing in property, and a slight splash was seen, which continued from August to October and forced prices to grow by some 3%. However, from October the situation calmed down and today we see a stable level. A fall in activity is seen. Today, property prices are similar to those registered in 2009 after a large correction," Zhoholev said at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine in Kyiv on Monday.
