The housing stock of the city of Lviv is diverse: there are houses older than a hundred years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; buildings of the twentieth century by Polish architects; high-rise buildings of the Soviet era; housing projects since Independence.
Interesting fact: in terms of cost, in contrast to Kyiv, where the location plays a key role, in Lviv, the price of an apartment is tied to the condition of the house and repair. It is not easy, but it is realistic to find a cheap option for housing in the heart of the city in an old stone house. However, the relatively low price has its reasons - in the long run, life here will turn into costs. Conversely, new buildings are economical. Why?
The power supply and water supply system in old houses does not differ in quality. This leads to possible accidents with the light turned off, and to the need to invest additional funds in the replacement of wiring or pipes. There is no such problem in new buildings: communications are made at a good level, and they will serve for decades.
It is necessary to tell separately about heating:
In the long run, this means significant savings.
High-quality infrastructure is also a guarantee of savings:
The comfort of optimal building infrastructure means saving time, which is no more important than saving money.
