The ruling Democratic Party(DP) selected six areas in the capital region as test sites for a housing supply program that would allow people an easier road to home purchases.
Kim Jin-pyo, the head of the party's special real estate committee, said on Thursday that ten-thousand-785 homes will be provided in Incheon, Ansan, Hwaseong, Uiwang, Paju and Siheung and lot sales will begin in early 2022.
The program allows people to reside in homes with a 10 percent down-payment and then purchase the home at the initial price after ten years.
The committee also decided to offer an additional five-thousand-800 homes in the new Gyeonggi provincial towns of Dongtan, Hoecheon, Unjeong and Godeok.
Such measures come in line with the government's push to expand the housing supply, after anti-speculation policies failed to cool down the heated market.
Meanwhile, the ruling party plans to hold regular meetings with DP-affiliated Seoul City councilors to seek ways to increase the supply.
