The year-on-year increase between January and September was 36 percent in municipalities, 22 percent in county towns and 7.7 percent in smaller towns, while in the capital the number of housing transfers shrank by 10 percent. The divergence is partly explained by the Covid effect in smaller municipalities, with many people moving out of the big cities, while large investments in the capital may have been hit particularly hard by the recent difficulties, construction price rises, supply chains and labour shortages, the statement quotes Dávid Valkó, senior analyst at OTP Ingatlanpont. Another reason, the expert said, is that the metropolitan housing market, which usually reacts more quickly to changes in the housing market, is also experiencing an earlier slowdown. The number of housing applications (building permits and simple notifications) rose by 15.8 percent to 25,984 between January and September, but here too there were significant differences by settlement type, the report shows.
