Zhytomyr (Ukrainian: Жито́мир, romanized: Zhytomyr [ʒɪˈtɔmɪr]; Russian: Жито́мир, romanized: Zhitomir [ʐɨˈtomʲɪr]; Polish: Żytomierz [ʐɨˈtɔ.mjɛʂ]; Yiddish: זשיטאָמיר, romanized: Zhitomir; German: Schytomyr [ʒɪˈtɔmɪʁ]) is a city in the north of the western half of Ukraine. It is the administrative center of Zhytomyr Oblast (province), as well as the administrative center of the surrounding Zhytomyr Raion (district). The city of Zhytomyr is not a part of Zhytomyr Raion: the city itself is designated as its own separate raion within the oblast; moreover Zhytomyr consists of two so-called “raions in a city”: Bohunskyi Raion and Koroliovskyi Raion (named in honour of Sergey Korolyov). Zhytomyr occupies an area of 65 square kilometres (25 square miles). Its population is 261,624 (2022 est.)

Zhytomyr is a major transport hub. The city lies on a historic route linking the city of Kyiv with the west through Brest. Today it links Warsaw with Kyiv, Minsk with Izmail, and several major cities of Ukraine. Zhytomyr was also the location of Ozerne airbase, a key Cold War strategic aircraft base 11 kilometres (6.8 miles) southeast of the city.

Important economic activities of Zhytomyr include lumber milling, food processing, granite quarrying, metalworking, and the manufacture of musical instruments.

Zhytomyr Oblast is the main center of the Polish minority in Ukraine, and in the city itself there is a Latin Catholic cathedral and large Roman Catholic Polish cemetery, founded in 1800. It is regarded as the third biggest Polish cemetery outside Poland, after the Lychakivskiy Cemetery in Lviv and Rasos Cemetery in Vilnius.

The financial stability of Zhytomyr has translated into a real estate market that rewards forward planning and a willingness to look beyond areas of traditional affluence.

The Flipping Strategy in Zhytomyr


Investment property flipping in Zhytomyr is a simple strategy. You find a property that is in need of renovation from our list and purchase it for a low price. These type of Zhytomyr real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Zhytomyr real estate.


What is distressed Zhytomyr property:


  • Zhytomyr property in need of renovation
  • Zhytomyr real estate with a change of purpose and use
  • Oversold Zhytomyr property
  • Bank repossessions in Zhytomyr

Put simply, long term investors in Zhytomyr purchase the property, renovate it and make it a lot more attractive to potential buyers.


Calculate profit that you make from Zhytomyr investment property flipping:


Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Zhytomyr property purchase price: $220,000

Renovation costs: $20,000

Other costs: $25,000

Property sale price: $400,000

Profit: $135,000


Experienced property developers in Zhytomyr use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Zhytomyr projects.


The reason for this is because there are lots that can go wrong in Zhytomyr property flipping and working on a potential margin of 22% should still leave a good margin of error.
