Housing Market in China

The IMF’s latest report on China says that:

  • “Housing inventories in smaller cities declined considerably, due in part to social housing programs. House price growth moderated following the tightening measures since late 2016.”

  • “A more sustainable housing market. The government’s “long-term mechanism for housing” appropriately focuses on addressing fundamental supply-demand imbalances. Ensuring long-run sustainability of the housing market requires increasing land supply for residential housing, promoting rental markets, and reducing the reliance of local governments on land sales. De-emphasizing growth targets would allow housing investment to be driven by long-run fundamentals, rather than the need to manage economic cycles. Staff’s projection indicates that residential investment, a key growth engine over the last decade, will decline as a share of GDP over the medium term as household income and consumption growth moderates.”
