Big Trouble In Little Chinese Cities

Recommended Posts

Commercial banks are halting individual property loans in the face of tightening monetary policy and limited lending quota, the China Securities Journal reported Thursday.

"We will not accept property loan applications at present, even if it is from a first-time home buyer," a bank staff in Chongqing told the paper.

Meanwhile, some banks are mulling over whether to raise the ratio of down payment.

"You'd better prepare to pay 40 percent of your home price as down payment, because commercial banks are going to ask more for a property loan," said Gong Hang, a bank staff in Taiyuan, Shanxi province. "It is only a matter of time," he said.

Requirements for second-home loans have also become stricter in these cities. Home buyers may have to pay 50 to 60 percent of their home prices as down payments, with lending interest rates 10 to 15 percent higher than the benchmark rate, the paper said.

The rumbling gets louder.

Why the hell didn't our supposedly "more established" Banks act like this back in 2002?

If they demanded 40% deposits back then we may not be where we are now

And neither would their bonus figures.
