Abstract

Connectedness in housing markets can bea source of macro-financial systemicrisk. This study investigates regional housing market connectedness among 16 first-tier administrative divisionsin Koreaand 25 districtsin Seoul, the capital city. Connectedness is defined as in Diebold and Yilmaz (2014) and the time-varying parameter vector autoregressive model is used to capture its time-varying nature. The estimation results show that rapid increases in connectedness during the sample period are mostly associated with housing booms rather than downturns. Moreover, connectedness cycles for the whole country and for Seoul seem to diverge after the global financial crisis, just as their housing price cycles do. Cross-sectionally, as expected, Seoul and the surrounding Gyeonggi province have a strong influence on the connectedness network, especially during the 2006 connectedness surge episode. The influence of Gangnam-3 districts is not significantly high in either the 2006 or the 2017 connectedness surge episodes, but tends to lead the total connectedness index by a few months.
