Deals Struck in Second-hand Housing Reacha 7-year High in Ningbo

The first half year of 2016 have seen a craze both in purchases and sales in the real estate market in Ningbo. In conjunction with the increasing interest gained in newly-constructed commodity housing, the turnover in second-hand housing has reached a new high since 2009.

“It seems that the enthusiasm towards housing is contagious. Despite a frantic pursuit in the market of new commodity housing, the sales achieved in second-hand housing have well surpassed those of commodity housing in the first half of this year,” Xiaojiang said. “The average price remains steady as against a hike in the sales of stock houses. Even if there is a rise in the price, the fluctuation is relatively low under the context of a whole year. ”

Deals struck in February are the lowest with 1,646 houses traded. However, the trading volumes in March and April mounted surprisingly with sales standing separately at 5,517 units and 6,201 units, ushering in the peak in July. With the coming of May and the taking in of policies, the enthusiasm of purchasers faded away. More people assumed a stand-by pose, leading to the falling of trading volumes to a stable level wavering around 5000 units.
