If you have not spent a lot of time in Ukraine, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"We moved in with my Ukrainian mother-in-law, into her two-bed apartment. I invested time and money refurbishing the place. I agree to pay all the bills which, for the three of us, averages at 750 uah per month (£20.50). We are thinking about buying a house in one of the surrounding villages, which is a good option if you drive. You can pick up a 3 bed house relatively cheaply, and it's great to have your own "dacha" in the summer near a river of forest," remarked another expat in Kharkov, Ukraine.

"rented through an agent with the help of my partner. Very easy and did not even give first and last month rent , only first. We have 2 bedrooms , furnished nicely, flat screen tv, high speed internet, grocery shopping and parks in immediate vicinity as well as recreational facilities as mentioned above. Cost 550. to 600. US $ per month includes everything, except food of course," said a member in Kharkov, Ukraine.
