Real estate investment

S Korea unveils tough measures to control speculative

XINHUA

The new South Korean government under President Moon Jae-in, which was inaugurated on May 10, unveiled its second comprehensive measures to control speculative investment into real estate amid a rapid increase in home prices, reports Xinhua.

Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Kim Hyun-mee announced the measures at the government complex building Wednesday. The minister, who took office on July 23, said in her inaugural address that recent home price hikes were attributable to speculative investors, heralding a tougher action on speculative property investment.

The previous government disclosed anti-speculation measures in November last year, and the new administration took another action in mid-June to control speculative investment in the real estate market.

Despite the government warnings against speculative investors, apartment prices in the capital Seoul have risen at a faster pace in the past four weeks.  In some parts of Seoul, the selling price of apartment surged over 100 million won (88,900 US dollars) in a month.

According to the land ministry data, the percentage of home purchase made by those who own one house or more was an average of 43.7 per cent of the total from 2013 to 2017, up from 31.3 per cent tallied from 2006 to 2007.

In August 2005, the government of late President Roh Moo-hyun, for whom President Moon served as chief of staff, announced the country’s toughest-ever measures to regulate speculative property investment, helping cool down the overheated real estate market.
