In this study, we estimtate the value-at-risk (VaR) of the 10-day average apartment prices of Gangnam-gu, Seoul and Haeundae-gu, Busan in Korea. For this purpose, we adopt the semiparametric quantile regression approach for the VaR calculation based on ARIMA-GARCH models, employing the well-known risk measures such as the con- ditional autoregressive value-at-risk (CAViaR) and conditional autoregressive expectile (CARE) methods. After conducting the unconditional coverage (UC) and conditional coverage (CC) tests on the estimated VaRs, we conclude that the two methods per- form similarly for the Seoul case but the CARE method shows more stability than the CAViaR method in the Busan case.
