3 Things That Could Crush China's Hot Home Prices
China's home prices are hot. Average prices of new homes in 70 Chinese cities rose at an annual rate of 10.4% in February 2019, accelerating from a 10.0% rise in the previous month, according to Tradingeconomics.com.
That's the 46th straight month of price increases and the strongest annual gain since May 2017.
