Editor's Note: If there is a market more volatile than the stock market in current China, that must be the property market, and the trend is certainly up, up and up, at least for now. The prices are skyrocketing day by day and records are being broken time and time again, and every new number from the property market can twitch the already vulnerable nerves of potential home buyers. We prepared a set of statistics on the property market this week, and they may indicate the trend in the future.

Down payment for second home purchase

Media reported the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) Chairman Liu Mingkang said down payment ratios for second or multiple home purchases will be 60 percent. Then the CBRC said that was a misunderstanding and the second home down payment is still 40 percent. But some analyst suspect the "mistake" might imply a possible policy change.
