Looking to buy the report?

South Korea has a huge real estate sector. It has been the subject of interest since the late 1970s when the government transformed rice paddies and green fields in Southern Seoul (Gangnam) into the first modern residential district in Korea. During the economic recession in the early 1980s, the government further expanded green fields in Gangnam to help revive the ailing economy. It focused on building good infrastructure, residential buildings, and reputable schools. These green fields have now become the most expensive region in South Korea, hence the huge real estate market in the region. This market in South Korea is poised for growth at an estimated CAGR of XX.X% over the forecast period, from 2016 to 2021. The projected market value of the real estate sector in 2021 is USD XXXX.XX million.


The South Korean government provides the real estate developers with a lot of benefits and incentives encouraging them to invest. Foreign investments in the sector have always been encouraged by the government. Moreover, increasing urbanization and expansion in the real estate construction projects are some of the other drivers for the sector in South Korea.

Restraints and Challenges

An oversupply of new homes and tougher lending rules may signal an end to the boom. The oversupply has led to the increasing concerns about the property bubble, which have slowed down the economy and growth in the real estate sector in South Korea. Moreover, government measures to control household debt from 2016 will make it difficult to buy a house relying on loans. Regions, where there has been a surge in new apartment sales in recent years, may experience problems like a price correction.


Investing in real estate is considered as one of the best investments, globally. The size and scale of the real estate market make it an attractive and lucrative market for many investors, who can invest directly in the physical real estate or choose to invest indirectly through managed funds. Investing directly in real estate involves purchasing residential or commercial properties to generate income or for resale at a future time. Moreover, the government support for the sector makes way more opportunities.
