In 2016, China’s property sales and prices spiked due to intensified real estate activity. Guandian is a Chinese portal that provides first-hand real estate information and analysis. In this article, Tan Huajie, senior vice president of Vanke, a leading real-estate company in China, predicts that tighter capital conditions and higher land prices along with narrowing profits will bring weaker performance to the sector in 2017. He also discusses the possible future configuration of China’s real estate sector, particularly its housing market. getAbstract recommends his surgical analysis to real estate executives and interested investors.
