Think about where you would like to live in the city or a quiet village. Private homes, there are coastal cities, in the capital region – Krasnodar. On almost any street peacefully adjoin the high-rise apartment and cozy small houses behind the brightly painted fences. If you want to combine the hustle and bustle of city life and the isolated lives of the owner of a small estate, the house in the city – what you need. The price for a decent finished house with a small plot of land in the cities of Kuban begins from 7 million rubles.
Then visit the Krasnodar village. Abandoned villages of the Central part of Russia with a rickety dark creepy houses and roads are very different from villages in the Kuban. Roads in Krasnodar countryside is smooth and paved, in the centre of the village there are fountains, flowerbeds and neat parks, and the houses compete in beauty and luxury. Select the village you prefer and start looking.
Walk around the streets of the stanitsa. On many houses you can see banners with the words "Sell", and on every bus stop there's always boards with ads for selling houses. Go to the local Cossack administration and ask what kind of houses are now on sale. Visit your local market and ask some questions to the vendor. People in the Kuban are friendly and talkative, and will tell you anything you'd like to know. So you can buy the property, without intermediaries.
Contact the real estate Agency. In the Krasnodar region a huge number of them. However, the interest for their services they take are not small. A minimum of 5% of the value of the house. This price includes only information about the house and its owner. To make a deal, you will need to pay a separate amount. Usually lawyers charge for their services from 8 to 15 thousand.
Refer to the private realtor, resident in the village, where you decide to purchase a home. They often have better information than the agencies, because realtors live where you work, familiar with the residents and know the local real estate market very well. Private realtors take it from 3% of the property value for their services, some have special education and can lead legal support of the transaction. But it happens rarely.
Try to buy a house in the fall or winter. Home prices in this time of year usually fall. But spring and summer is a seasonal price increase of 3-10%. Many are trying to buy a house and to have time to do planting in the garden or to finish some construction business, often in a private home. Sellers of homes know this and are in no hurry to reduce prices.
