Last month, while the sale of apartments in Seoul dropped close to 60%, the purchase of apartments in their 30s, which led the'panic buying' (panic purchase) in June to July, was also found to have been cut in half.
However, it was found that people in their 30s bought the most apartments among all ages, even in the midst of such a trading cliff.
According to the apartment sales status released by the Korea Appraisal Board today (21st), the number of apartment sales in Seoul last month was 6,880, down 57.0% from the previous month (16,2).
Seoul apartment sales transactions steadily climbed from 1,889 in January to 3,432 in May and 8,586 in August, and peaked at 14,117 in December.
Then, due to the December 16 measures last year and the impact of Corona 19 earlier this year, it decreased to 3,699 cases in April this year and 4,328 cases in May, and then exploded again to 11,106 cases in June and 16,2 cases in July. Increased to.
The cause of the surge in transactions from June to July is'panic buying' of young people including their 30s.
As the price of the house soared and the prospects that it will continue to rise in the future became strong, young people hurried to buy it because of the anxiety that it would be difficult to find a house if it is not now.
In fact, the proportion of apartment purchases in Seoul by age group was 23.4-27.5% in the first half of last year, which was lower than or similar to those in the 40s, the traditional housing market'big hand'.
The share of sales in their 30s increased from 30.4% in January this year to 33.0% in February, then declined to 30.3%, 28.5%, and 29.0% in March and May, and then rose to 32.4% in June and 33.4% in July.
This was followed by 36.9% last month, the highest since the start of a statistical survey by age group in January last year.
Last month, apartment sales in Seoul were the second largest in their 40s (28.3%) after their 30s.
The difference in the proportion of sales in the 30s and 40s was 8.6 percentage points, which was nearly double that of the previous year (4.6 percentage points).
By region, last month, those in their 30s emerged as the top purchasers in all districts in Seoul except for'Gangnam 3-gu' and Yangcheon-gu, where there are many expensive apartments such as Seocho, Gangnam, and Songpa-gu.
In particular, the proportion of purchases in the 30s outside of Seoul such as Gangseo-gu (46.5%) and Seongbuk-gu (45.0%) exceeded 40%.
If you add Dongjak-gu (44.1%), Seodaemun-gu (43.3%), Dongdaemun-gu (43.2%), Guro-gu (42.6%), Mapo-gu (41.5%), and Yeongdeungpo-gu (40.1%), it is a total of 8 districts in Seoul.
Experts analyzed that the buying trend in their 30s is calming down due to the already high apartment prices and the 8·4 supply measures.
However, the anxiety over the provision of a home in their 30s with a low subscription point has not been completely resolved, so if the jeonse price continues to surge, it is expected that they will be able to purchase mid- to low-priced apartments in the outskirts of Seoul again.
