The mainland market is expected to see more transactions but weaker prices this year, according to the China division of Midland Properties. In Beijing, tightening policies last year resulted in a 26 per cent drop in firsthand transactions and a 37 per cent tumble in secondhand homes, while Shanghai and Guangzhou both saw small increases. Government figures showed total commercial housing sold was 970 million square metres, up 8 per cent.
