Citibank Expects Further Home Curbs
A report by Citibank claims the government could roll out a new round of cooling measures to tame the overheated property market as soon as Friday. The new housing policies will target those holding multiple residential properties by charging them double or triple rates, according to Citibank. First-time property buyers will be exempted. The report points out that three major obstacles holding back the government from launching the measures have been cleared. These are the election of a new chief executive, statistics showing a rapid increase in local home prices, and mainland cities rolling out macro-policies to regulate the property market of first- and second-tier cities.
