China’s Efforts to Prop Up Property Market Fall Short
China’s real estate market has been in freefall for months, after tough regulatory curbs on developers’ borrowings pushed it into a crisis of liquidity and confidence.
Though around 100 cities tweaked their property policies in May, the sales of the top 100 developers were still down 59.4% year-on-year, according to data from property consultancy China Real Estate Information Corp (CRIC). However, they did rise 5.6% from the previous month.
