Some people in the industry also said that at present, the main housing companies that started to issue bonds are still leading real estate companies.

It will take some time for the real estate market to stabilize and even recover.

  "Recently favorable real estate policies have appeared frequently, showing the determination of relevant departments to resolve real estate risks." Zhang Jiqiang, chief fixed income analyst at Huatai Securities, said that at present, real estate sales have not been effectively stabilized, and the liquidity tension of real estate enterprises needs to continue to be eased. The introduction and implementation of favorable real estate support policies is still worth looking forward to.
