Affordable rental sector in Budapest? Results of a questionnaire survey [Megfizethető bérlakásszektor Budapesten? Egy kérdőíves felmérés eredményei]

2023. Jelinek, Csaba and Czirfusz, Márton

This booklet is based on 2022 research on the supply and demand side of the affordable rental housing sector in eight Central and South-Eastern European countries. The main objective of the project was to assess how patient or catalytic capital, but primarily market-based, financial resources could finance new affordable housing models in the region. This booklet presents a part of the research: a questionnaire survey mapping the demand side of the affordable rental housing sector. Based on our unique survey, we have analyzed in detail who could be the tenants of an affordable rental housing sector in Budapest.

This volume of Periféria working papers is a research account on the spatial strategies of the Hungarian housing market actors, as it is a summary of Zsuzsanna Pósfai's doctoral theses targeting a broader audience of Hungarian speakers. It particular focuses on issues of housing finances such as housing investments and mortgages as well as of housing mobility - concerning housing transactions and to a certain degree, new housing developments. These fields are where both housing market logics and social issues equally prevail.

Rental Housing Cooperative Model in Hungary [Bérlői lakásszövetkezeti modell Magyarországon]

2020. Jelinek, Csaba and Zsuzsanna Pósfai

In this working paper we provide a summary of our practical experience on the topic. Within the paper we give an overview of the financial, legal, architectural/urbanistic and communal aspects of the potential framework in which the implementation of a rental housing cooperative model in Hungary would be realistic. Besides analyzing inspirational examples from other countries, we also point out how the Hungarian regulatory framework should be modified in order to catalyze the spread of the model. The text introduces various Hungarian actors who have been active in promoting and advocating for rental housing cooperatives in Hungary in recent years.
