  Hu Run, chairman and chief research officer of Hurun Report, said that since the second half of last year, China's real estate industry has been in deep financial difficulties.

However, it can be seen from this list that among the top 100 entrepreneurs in the global real estate industry, there are more Chinese entrepreneurs than other countries combined.

  Hurun said that China's urbanization rate has exceeded 60%, and 40% of the top 100 real estate entrepreneurs focus on developing and selling properties. It can be seen that there is still room for urbanization in the future.

In general, the real estate industry has been relatively stable for many years. After the epidemic, many people invested in real estate in order to fight inflation.
