Despite the ongoing war in Ukraine and the threat of rocket attacks throughout the country, the cost of renting a home has not decreased but continues to grow in some regions. Thus, Dim.Ria, a real estate marketplace, and Work.ua, a job search site, conducted a study to find out what part of the salary Ukrainians have to spend on rent and in which regions of the country it is most profitable to live.


The article below describes the results of the study and in which cities Ukrainians have to pay 80% of their salary for renting an apartment.


Where is the most expensive rental housing in Ukraine?


The survey results showed that the farther a city is from the front line, the more expensive it is to rent an apartment. Thus, Ukrainians in Lviv have to spend the largest share of their salary on rent, and the smallest share - in Kherson.


The rating of the ratio of rent to the average salary is as follows:


1. Lviv - renting an apartment costs 80% of the average salary in the city, which is UAH 18,500

2. Kyiv - 78% of UAH 20,000

3. Poltava - 77% of 16,000 UAH

4. Vinnytsia - 73% of 16,000 UAH

5. Dnipro - 71% of 18,000 UAH

6. Lutsk - 67% of 15,000 UAH

7. Cherkasy - 63% of UAH 16,300

8. Rivne and Uzhhorod - 61% of the average salary (UAH 15,500 and UAH 18,000 respectively)

9. Ivano-Frankivsk - 55% of UAH 17,000

10.  Zhytomyr - 52% of UAH 15,500

11. Chernihiv - 45% of 15,000 UAH

Who finds it easiest to rent an apartment in Ukraine?


The study also analyzed how easy it is to rent an apartment in Ukraine for people with one of the ten most popular professions. 


Thus, in Kyiv, it is easiest for sales managers to rent an apartment - 52% of the average income (UAH 30,000), and the hardest for bartenders, baristas, pickers and loaders - 94% of the average income (UAH 16,500).

In Kharkiv, it is most difficult to rent housing for cashiers in stores, as the share of rent in the average income is 43%.

In Odesa, drivers spend the smallest part of their salary on housing - 31%, and bartenders and baristas spend the largest part - more than 50%.

And in Lviv, the rent turned out to be unaffordable for almost all representatives of the professions, as they have to pay from 50% to 96% of their income for housing.


At the same time, professionals from Kharkiv and Odesa had the highest rental capacity. However, the only category of employees for whom renting an apartment is not a problem at all were and still are IT workers.
