“Am I an idiot who only looked at the 3rd new town after living as a homeless person for 20 years?

Starting with the special supply on the 28th, as the pre-subscription process for public housing districts such as the 3rd new town is in full swing, the voices of middle-aged and older people complaining of ‘deprivation of subscription’ are growing. This is because the middle-aged and middle-aged people are being discriminated against as the 2030 generation receives a large amount of supply from the newlyweds special supply (special attack) and the Newlyweds Hope Town. Although the subscription system has become the epicenter of generational conflict due to the lack of housing supply and the sharp rise in house prices, the Democratic Party of Korea is ordering a major overhaul of the subscription system, saying, “You have to consider the younger generation, including the 3040 generation.”

According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport and Korea Land and Housing Corporation (LH) on the 25th, the number of newlyweds was 2658, accounting for 61.3% of the 4333 households supplied this month through advance subscription. Newlyweds Hope Town 1945 households and 713 newlyweds in public sale. Wirye and Uiwang Cheonggye districts are only supplied as Newlyweds Hope Town, and the general supply from the other three public housing districts is only 378 households (8.7%).

In the case of middle-aged and middle-aged end-users of housing, if they do not meet other special conditions such as multiple children (3 children or more) and support of elderly parents (more than 65 years old and over 3 years), they have to compete for general supply. In particular, newlyweds with one child apply bypass support for the first time in their lives in order to increase their odds of winning because the newlyweds special attack gives additional points according to the number of children.

At least the middle-aged and middle-aged end-users, who have additional points, have to depend on general supply. For the general supply, which is a total of 378 households, the winner is selected based on the total amount paid in the subscription account. In the case of general sale, the winner is selected (sequential system) based on the total amount paid in the subscription account, and the amount recognized for payment is recognized up to 100,000 won per month. At the end of last year, the cut line for general supply of the A3-3a block for public sale in Wirye was 22.2 million won (exclusive area 59㎡). This is the amount that must be paid for 18 years and 6 months at 100,000 won per month.

It is difficult to expect other complexes to pre-order within this year. The government plans to supply a total of 30,200 households through advance subscription this year, of which 14,300 households in the Newlywed Hope Town alone. Of the 15,900 households excluding the Newlywed Hope Town, the general supply excluding special attacks is expected to be 2,385 households. This is only 7.9% of the total volume supplied through advance subscription.

In particular, many places with high accessibility to Seoul only accept pre-orders for Newlyweds Hope Town. Twelve of the 30 public housing sites that are taking pre-orders this year will only release the Newlywed Hope Town. In fact, all of the land in Subangsa, Dongjak-gu, which is the only Seoul area among the pre-orders this year, will be supplied only to Newlywed Hope Town. July Wirye and Uiwang Cheonggye 2 locations, October Seongnam Naksaeng and Seongnam Bokjeong 2, Gunpo Daeyami, Uiwang Woram, Suwondangsu, Bucheonjong Bell, etc. 6 locations, November Siheung load 1 location, December Bucheon Yeokgok, Seoul Dongjak-gu Subangsa, All three locations, including the Gurigalmae Station area, are all reserved for Newlyweds Hope Town.

Person A in their 50s said, “When I saw the announcement of the pre-registration occupants, I heard that people in their 50s without homes have lived without a house so far, so they should continue to live like that in the future.”

Despite growing dissatisfaction among middle-aged consumers over the pre-subscription supply, the Democratic Party is demanding policy reform to increase the chances of winning subscriptions for the younger generation, such as the ‘3040 generation giving up subscription (Cheonpo tribe)’. It is interpreted as part of embracing the younger generation ahead of the presidential and local elections.

In public sales, reducing the additional points system and increasing the lottery system are considered promising. The goal is to allow young ‘Cheonpo’ to receive the lottery tickets. In the meantime, the middle-aged and older people who have accumulated additional points are inevitably having fewer opportunities.

Regarding this, the ruling party think tank Deirae Research Institute reported in the report ‘Problems and Directions for Improvement of the Housing Sales System’, “The proportion of homeless people in their 40s and 50s is as high as in their 30s. There is a great need and urgency to prepare,” he pointed out.
