For the cohorts aged 25–34, the average housing wealth rises by a margin of 15–34%, implying that a 10 percentage points increase in the LTV ratio is associated with approximately a 5% increase in the housing asset accumulation for the young age cohort.

Housing wealth increases significantly for the cohort aged 75 and above as well, with a. Household wealth accumulation and portfolio choices in Korea.
