According to Doctor Apartment, the market price for reconstructed houses all over the nation

increased by merely 2 percent during February 1 through 27. The rally is the first in five months

since last September for the capital region (In-chon and Kyong-gi) excluding Seoul, and the first

in four months for Seoul and the whole nation.

The increase was significant for the Kangnam district in Seoul: Kangdong-gu, 4.52 percent; Songpa-gu, 3.15 percent; Kangnam-gu, 3.05 percent; and Seocho-gu, 1.12 percent. Strong recovery was seen in the capital regions other than Seoul: Bu-chun, 3.27 percent; Kwha-chun, 2.7 percent; and Kwang-mung, 1.15 percent.

The distribution selling price for complex residencies also started its first recovery in four months since the announcement of the “10.29 counter plan.” Every ‘gu’ in Seoul gained from the recovery movement: Kangnam-gu (3.8 percent), Yongsan-gu (2.5 percent), and Yangchun-gu (1.23 percent).
