Shanghai and Shenzhen strike hard to "relieve fever" in the property market

  The continuous "new craze" in Shanghai and Shenzhen and the resulting turmoil in the property market have attracted heavy supervision.

For two days in a row, the housing and construction departments of Shenzhen and Shanghai issued new regulations and notices, referring to the phenomenon of fake divorces and "buying houses on behalf of the owner" in the "new craze".

  At the end of 2020, the real estate market in the four first-tier cities has seen a "tail-up" phenomenon, and the sayings of "housing prices must rise" and "buy houses faster" have begun to spread.

Experts said that the statements from the central to the local level have shown that "housing to live without speculation" is still the main tone of property market regulation during the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, and speculative speculation is still not feasible.

  Shanghai introduces new policy to strictly block false divorce

  On January 21, Shanghai issued the "Opinions on Promoting the Stable and Healthy Development of the City's Real Estate Market" late at night, in order to curb the continued "craze" of the property market.

Among the ten new policies proposed in the "Opinions", four are the most critical: First, strictly enforce the housing purchase restriction policy. If the couple is divorced, if either party purchases a commercial housing within 3 years from the date of divorce, the number of housing units owned by the couple is based on the family before the divorce. The total number of units is calculated; the second is to strictly implement the differentiated housing credit policy, strengthen the prudent management of personal housing loans, and strictly prevent the illegal flow of funds into the real estate market; the third is to adjust the VAT exemption period, and the VAT exemption period for personal sales of housing from 2 years Increase to 5 years; fourth, strictly manage the sales of commercial housing, improve the housing selection system of newly-built commercial housing notarization, and give priority to satisfying the demand for self-occupied houses of "houseless families".

  "From giving priority to protecting families without houses to adjusting the VAT exemption period, especially to cracking down on fake divorce purchases, the New Deal is clearly aimed at the property market boom in Shanghai since 2020 and cracking down on the soil for speculating on new house prices." Analyst at Zhuge Housing Research Center Chen Xiao said.


Yesterday, the Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued a notice disclosing that 12 subscribers of Shenzhen China Resources City Runxi Phase I had concealed the truth, provided false materials and fund flow records.

The Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of Housing and Urban-rural Development will suspend the qualifications of relevant personnel in Shenzhen for online visas, housing provident fund loans, and the qualifications to purchase and lease affordable housing and talent housing.

At the same time, the Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of Housing and Urban-rural Development stated that according to the latest regulations, commercial housing purchased by households can only be registered under the names of family members who are qualified to purchase houses, and registration under the names of both parties is no longer allowed.

  The main cause of restlessness caused by "new craze"

  At the beginning of 2021, the two first-tier cities have successively "pushed out" to regulate the property market, which is inseparable from the recent "craze" in the two places.

  Shenzhen's "new craze" appeared in June 2020.

At that time, the first phase of Huafa Rongyu Garden on Financial Street entered the market, attracting 8997 people to participate in lottery selection, and the winning rate was only 4.38%, the lowest winning rate in Shenzhen.

Five months later, the first phase of China Resources City Runxi launched the subscription, setting a new record again. A total of 9,690 people paid the subscription funds in two days.

In order to increase the chance of lottery, a small number of subscribers even find someone to "buy a house on behalf of the owner."

  Panic buying also occurred in Shanghai in December last year.

According to statistics, in a single month in December alone, there were 13 "thousand people shake" properties in Shanghai.

Behind the "new craze", there is certainly the problem of upside-down second-hand housing prices, but it has also changed market expectations and even led to the rise of local second-hand housing prices.

"The trend is surging. Investors enter the market to grab the housing of customers who just need it, amplify the investment effect and increase market impulse." Zhang Dawei, chief analyst of Centaline Real Estate, said that this inconsistency with the tone of "housing and not speculating" triggered a new regulatory policy. .

  Due to the city’s policy, the control will not change

  Not only Shenzhen and Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou will also see the phenomenon of "tail-lifting" the property market at the end of 2020.

In December 2020, 6681 new residential online signings in Beijing and 20,944 second-hand residential online signings increased significantly year-on-year.

"The'tail-lifting' phenomenon in the Beijing property market was mainly caused by the concentrated transactions of housing in the school district at the end of the year, and there was no general rise in housing prices in the city." Zhang Dawei said that the policy trend to maintain the steady and healthy development of the property market will not change. Looking at the latest policy of the central bank, financial policy will still be tightened."

  At the beginning of this month, Minister of Housing and Urban-Rural Development Wang Menghui publicly stated that he adheres to the positioning of "houses are used for living, not for speculation" and does not use real estate as a short-term means of stimulating the economy, and always tightens the string of real estate market regulation. , Fully implement the long-term real estate mechanism.

The Beijing Municipal Commission of Housing and Urban-rural Development also stated that in the first year of the "14th Five-Year Plan", it will maintain its regulatory force, earnestly implement the main responsibility of the city, continue to strengthen the real estate market supervision, and prevent unlicensed house sales, contract fraud, and illegal use of pre-sale funds. Highlight problems, maintain a high-pressure law enforcement situation, and never tolerate them.
