China Limits Foreign Property Ownership

By - Friday 19 November 2010

The Chinese government has announced that it is introducing new limits on the ability of foreigners to buy residential or commercial property in the country. The move is the latest effort to reduce to amount of speculative money entering into its economy.

In a statement, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development reinforced existing rules to limit foreign individuals to buying one residential unit per person for self-use.

However, analysts believe that the overall effect of the measure will be minimal, as foreigners only make up a small number of real estate sales in China at present. Indeed, foreign investments accounted for 0.8 per cent of property development in the country last year, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed.

Property prices in China have been on an upward spiral since the beginning of the year and over the last two months home values in the country have increased 9.1 per cent and 8.6 per cent respectively compared to the same period one year ago.
