Chinese House Prices Continue To Rise In August

Recommended Posts


China property prices continued to rise in August, despite government efforts to cool the market.

Prices for new homes rose in 69 of 70 major cities. It is the fourth month in a row prices have risen in all but one of China's biggest cities.

China has been trying to rein in property prices amid fears that asset bubbles may be forming in the country.

Analysts said the continued price rises could prompt authorities to take steps to reduce speculation in the market.

Zhang Zhiwei, an economist with Japanese bank Nomura, said that he expected the government to start "tightening monetary and property sector policies after the Communist Party meeting in November"

Surprised we haven't had anyone in the UK selling Chinese property here, you'd make a killing. Easy money...

Could someone remind me

1) Why anyone from china would want to speculate in the London market if their own market is experiencing the same, if not higher levels of inflation?

2) What happens if they manage to get Chinese property inflation under control? Will this cause more or less speculation in global property markets?

I tend to think that once Chinese property inflation reduces in level with general inflation, the Chinese property magnates will not be making those huge profits to 'invest' into foreign markets. You might even speculate that they would liquidate their foreign portfolios and move into productive assets.
