  Among the new first-tier cities, the rental market in Chengdu has risen steadily, with average rents rising 4.2% month-on-month in April; Hangzhou's average rents have risen to a certain extent, with an increase of 2.6% month-on-month in April; Changsha has not experienced major fluctuations, but has a slight month-on-month increase in April It rose by 1.2%; with the increase in supply, Tianjin saw a slight decline in April, down 0.3% month-on-month.

  “Although the rents in the first-tier cities showed an upward trend in April as a whole, the momentum for subsequent rent increases is still weak, and the operating pressure of long-term rental apartments is still relatively large.” Zhang Bo said that the second-tier cities have mixed rents and urban markets The environment has a direct relationship. With the stability of transactions, the leasing market will gradually restore stability. (Finish)
