In order to curb the “virtual fire” in the property market, in the first two months of 2021, a round of real estate-related policies has been intensively introduced across the country.

This round of regulation is mainly focused on reducing the leverage of the property market, such as restricting loan quotas, raising interest rates, and checking the entry of illegal funds into the property market. In addition, the attention of regulation is also on the second-hand housing market.
