“Last chance to enter Seoul”… Increased purchase of apartments in Seoul by foreigners

As the price of apartments in Seoul has decreased significantly compared to the peak, the number of purchases by residents in other regions is increasing. 4.3 out of 10 transactional apartments in Mapo-gu were bought by outsiders, and Songpa-gu recorded the highest number of purchases.

Among them, the largest portion of foreign purchases was in Mapo-gu, accounting for 43.3% of the total. Out of 305 apartments in Mapo-gu that were traded in the first quarter, 132 were purchased by residents outside of Seoul. This is much larger than the 23.8% share of apartments purchased by outsiders in the first quarter of last year and 19.5% in the fourth quarter of last year.
