Since the second quarter of 2009, the housing price has rebounded and been increasing substantially.
In order to control the real estate market, China government has taken a series of policies, through which the growth rate of housing price has dropped in many cities, and the housing price has even declined in some cities.
In 2011, the growth rate of the average transaction price for new commodity housing of 70 cities has fallen back to 1.6% from 6.5%, and the growth rate has fallen back to -0.2% from 0.8% compared with 2010.
In December, 2011, China's Central Economic Work Conference has clearly claimed that China government would continue its control policies in real estate market to promote the reasonable return of housing price.
In March, 2012, the report on government work has emphasized that the government will strictly carry out the policies that curb the investment demands in real estate market and consolidate the results of regulation and control.
In May, 2012, the Standing Committee of State Council has pointed out that the government should steadily and strictly carry out the policies used for regulating and controlling the real estate market.
Qin Hong, the director of policy research center of MOHURD, said that the regulation and control would still insist on curbing investment demands and meeting the rigid demands in real estate market in the future. The developers should give up their dream of policy ease and should take the rigid demands as their opportunities.
