Where did most people move from Pest? We will show you!

Most of them “escaped” from Pest to the south, as the winner of the migration balance – we will tell you now – was the Szigetszentmiklós district last. This is evident from a recent study by Otthon Centrum experts.


Most people still move out of Pest: the metropolitan agglomeration is the most popular real estate market destination, according to a study by analysts at Otthon Centrum, which summarized, among other things, the migration indicators of the pre-pandemic period.

In their latest study, Otthon Centrum experts analyzed the migration surplus of different settlements in the country and the proportion of people moving in and out of it. “All districts of the metropolitan agglomeration and the whole of Pest County have been characterized by a positive migration balance in recent years,” commented the head of analysis at Otthon Centrum, who commented on the findings of the latest migration data study. Gábor Soóki-Tóth said that in proportion to the population, the Szigetszentmiklós district, then the Budakeszi and Ráckeve regions recorded the largest migration gains, in these settlements the migration gains increased by more than 15 per cent in 2019. At the same time, the settlements of the Cegléd and Nagykőrös districts have the lowest migration balance, which were characterized by a surplus of less than 5 per thousand.

The trend is unstoppable and is unbroken except for the stagnation of the real estate market caused by the pandemic. It is a decade of real estate market experience that more people move to the agglomeration than to the city in times of economic boom. Young children are attracted to their own garden, and members of the middle generation want to achieve the family home of their dreams and the most obvious alternative to this is to move out of town. A similar trend prevails in Budapest and in cities with county status: while family houses in or on the outskirts of the city are only accessible to a narrow stratum, this type of property is becoming more affordable as you move away from the city limits. The direction of migration is favored by the fact that you can buy a detached house or a building plot for the price of a downtown apartment.



Most sales took place in the largest settlements and their catchment areas. In the same period as the latest migration data, ie in 2019, 2,100 transactions were concluded in the settlements of Szigetszentmiklós district, 1,600 in Érd district and 1,350 in Dunakeszi district. The Szigetszentmiklós district leads proportionally with the population by 17 per thousand, followed by the Dunakeszi district with 15.6 per thousand and the Nagykáta district with 14.8 per thousand. In most districts, there were 10-15 transactions per thousand inhabitants in 2019.

According to the preliminary data of the CSO for 2020, most transactions were also in the Szigetszentmiklós district, 819, followed by the Érd and Gödöllő districts with 794 transactions. The line is closed by the Szobi district with 170 transactions. Compared to 2019, these data are 39-56%, the highest in Cegléd and the lowest in Vecsés district, but these values ​​largely depend on the degree of processing.
