The old downtown area of Jungwon-gu, Seongnam, where four to five-story row houses are lined up.
There are many dilapidated houses built in the early 1990s, so there is hope for redevelopment.
It is said that there is a lot of demand for ‘gap investment’ because you can buy a house for tens of millions of won if you use a jeonse.
One of them is a row house.
According to the registration, the owner is Shin Mo, who was born in 1990.
In July 2020, I bought this 38-square-meter house for 175 million won.

“That’s what the candidate said. ‘I’ll find a way to redevelop it within 2030’…”
The area for redevelopment promised by Candidate Shin includes a row house invested by her daughter.
Candidate Shin explained in a phone call with MBC, “I bought it for the purpose of living when my daughter received 50 million won from her grandmother to get a job.”

“I had all the money I received from my grandmother, so I thought I would live after graduating from graduate school and get a job, so I rented a…
He also emphasized that he promised to redevelop several places in the Seongnam area as well as the area, and that it had nothing to do with the purchase of his daughter’s house.
However, when the conflict of interest problem was pointed out, candidate Shin said, “I will sell the house if I am elected,” and then texted again, saying, “I put it out to sell to real estate.”
