  Looking back at the upcoming 2021, the real estate sales market and land market showed a clear trend of high and low.

However, with the continuous release of positive signals from the policy side at the end of the year and the adoption of various methods by real estate companies to help themselves, many industry insiders believe that the industry expectations have been repaired for the first time.

  Compared with the differentiation of the sales side of the property market, the housing leasing market has undoubtedly obtained the precise escort of the policy.

Zhao Ran, dean of the ICCRA Institute of Housing Leasing Industry, said in an interview with the "Securities Daily" that at present, the commercial closed loop of the housing leasing industry based on "asset management" has taken shape, and the housing leasing industry has ushered in a new development situation.

  New house, second-hand house, land transaction

  Whole chain cooling

  The real estate market in 2021 can be roughly summed up as "hot first and then cold".

  The "Real Estate Market Outlook Report 2022" released by the Shell Research Institute shows that the cooling of the real estate market in 2021 will first appear in the second-hand housing market.

From March to September, the second-hand housing market fell from a peak to a trough within six months, and the transaction volume shrank by more than 60%.

In terms of the new house market, the sales area of ​​newly built commercial residential buildings across the country continued to grow in the first half of the year. In June, it hit the highest level since 2016 in a single month, but by November, the sales area of ​​new houses had fallen to the lowest level since 2016.

In addition, in the land market, real estate companies "grabbed land" in the first half of the year, and many land parcels in hot cities in the second half of the year were unsold.

  Chen Wenjing, deputy research director of the Index Division of the China Index Research Institute, said in an interview with a reporter from the Securities Daily that in the first half of this year, driven by factors such as increased launches by companies and relatively abundant credit funds, the market as a whole continued the end of 2020. The active situation and the high enthusiasm of the superimposed land market further drove home buyers’ home ownership sentiment, making the national property market perform better than expected in the first half of the year.

In this context, in order to further achieve the goal of "three stability", many places have increased their property market control policies, such as issuing reference prices for second-hand housing transactions, strengthening market supervision, and raising the threshold for talent purchases. Some cities continue to upgrade restrictions on purchases, loans, and loans. Restricted sales and other policies, and regulated cities to further expand to third- and fourth-tier cities.










  Zhao Ran said that overall, the policies related to the housing leasing market introduced this year will, on the one hand, help reduce the cost burden of housing leasing companies, including development costs and operating costs. The key link of "exit" has made the commercial closed loop of the entire housing leasing industry formed, which greatly promotes the development of the housing leasing market.

On the other hand, the policy emphasizes "high attention to the construction of affordable rental housing", and has also set the tone of "protecting people's livelihood" for the housing rental market, effectively guaranteeing the needs of new citizens and young people, and avoiding disorderly development of the industry.

  Specifically, in July, the General Office of the State Council officially issued the "Opinions on Accelerating the Development of Affordable Rental Housing."

In addition, the “Notice on Further Doing a Good Job in the Pilot Work of Real Estate Investment Trust Funds (REITs) in the Infrastructure Sector” issued by the National Development and Reform Commission included for the first time affordable rental housing (including those in municipalities and major cities with a net population inflow). Included in the list of pilot projects.

Superimposed on the "Announcement on Improving Tax Policies for Housing Leasing" jointly issued by the Ministry of Finance, the State Administration of Taxation and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, undoubtedly provide multiple guarantees for the issuance of REITs for affordable rental housing, aiming to solve the pain points of the industry's "three highs and one low" .

  Since then, many places have successively issued implementation opinions on accelerating the development of affordable rental housing in line with urban characteristics, making affordable rental housing the focus of housing construction in the "14th Five-Year Plan", and accelerating the establishment of diversified and multi-subject supply.

And this year’s Central Economic Work Conference once again emphasized that we must adhere to both rental and purchase, accelerate the development of the long-term rental housing market, promote the construction of affordable housing, support the commercial housing market to better meet the reasonable housing needs of buyers, and promote a virtuous circle of the real estate industry due to urban policies. healthy growth.

  "This is the first time that the Central Economic Work Conference has added a'virtuous circle' at the level of real estate policies in the past three years. After years of regulation, the structure of the'rental and purchase' in my country's real estate market has basically taken shape, and a multi-level housing system has begun to take shape. Renting, affordable housing and commercial housing are "three pillars"." Zhao Ran said that overall, the housing leasing market policies that have been introduced this year are based on the market practice experience in previous years and can be said to promote the development of the entire industry " An important support policy for “up the stage”.

  Looking forward to 2022, the "Blue Book of China's Housing Rental Market 2021" released by the ICCRA Institute of Housing Leasing Industry predicts that the focus of rental housing is to develop affordable rental housing.

It is expected that in the future, in the context of city-specific policies, the identification standards for affordable rental housing in some cities, especially the control of product planning and rent levels, will be adapted to local conditions based on the characteristics of the city.

In addition to affordable rental housing, it is expected that there will also be a large number of market-oriented long-term rental housing to meet the needs of people of different living standards, creating a variety of choices for the broad masses of "housing" and "better housing".

Therefore, how to mobilize market enthusiasm and ensure a diversified market supply is the key to the subsequent construction of a multi-level supply system.

  From the perspective of the formation of the long-term mechanism of the housing leasing market, this year is the first year to explore a new model of centralized land supply. The first two centralized land supply has greatly improved the land use of "rental" through "competitive self-sufficiency and competitive construction". Volume.

However, this land supply method, especially the land price generated under the "competitive self-sufficiency" mode, has deposited huge development costs for the "operating meager" housing leasing industry.

It is expected that in 2022, various regions will actively explore the centralized land supply model, that is, under the premise of achieving the goal of increasing the supply of rental housing as planned, combining the characteristics of the industry's long self-sustainment time and low operating profit, the land supply model will be innovative.
