Abstract

This study quantitatively evaluated South Korean residents’ housing satisfaction and factors affecting shared housing and made recommendations for policy establishment for the supply and revitalization of shared housing in South Korea. Using an online and offline survey, the study analyzed the relationship between the satisfaction with shared housing, intention to reside again in shared housing, and intention to recommend shared housing to others among young people living in shared housing in Seoul. The results showed that shared housing characteristics significantly affected the housing satisfaction but not the intention to reside again and intention to recommend. Housing satisfaction significantly affected the intention to reside again and the intention to recommend. Residents of public-supply shared housing showed no significant correlation between the shared housing characteristics and housing satisfaction; those of private-supply shared housing showed increased housing satisfaction. Housing satisfaction did not significantly affect the intention to reside again among people in public-supply shared housing; however, it affected the intention to reside again among those in private-supply shared housing. The physical location and environment and community factors did not significantly affect overall housing satisfaction in public-supply shared housing but significantly affected the housing satisfaction and intention to reside again in private-supply shared housing. These results support the need for regulation and policy to guide housing adjustments and facilitate lifestyles, the need for diversification in housing types, and the importance of uniform management and operations of public-run units.
