Apartments in Pangyo new town, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi, will be put up for sale starting March next year.

Acquisition and registration taxes will be reduced by one percent, and they will be decreased to 2.5 percent of the housing price.

The government announced on August 30 that these points would be included in the “8/31 comprehensive property measures” that are to be made public on August 31.

Dong-A Ilbo acquired the final plan of the government, and the main points of the soon-to-be released property measures, including strengthening the tax system, were introduced in the August 30 issue of Dong-A Ilbo.

The government decided to build an additional 3,100 housing units of medium and large size in Pangyo. Accordingly, due to the procedures such as changing the development plan, the date of the sale will be postponed from November this year to next year.

The apartments (7,680 units) of exclusive use area of 25.7 pyeong or less will be put on sale next March, and the apartments (7,666 units) of over 25.7 pyeong in next August.
