Home prices in Chinese cities increased at a slower pace in 2018 and are expected to remain stable, according to the China Index Academy, a property research institution.

The average price of new homes in 100 cities rose 5.09 percent last year, a milder growth than 7.15 percent in 2017, according to a statement from the institution.

Meanwhile, second-hand homes in the country's 10 major cities saw their average price drop 0.11 percent, compared with an increase of 8.03 percent in 2017.

In December alone, the average new home price for 100 cities edged up 0.25 percent month-on-month to 14,678 yuan (about 2,139 U.S. dollars) per square meter. The growth was down 0.02 percentage points from that in November.

The statement said regulators are expected to remain focused on market stability in the future, predicting home prices to continue to stabilize.

The annual Central Economic Work Conference held last month called for a long-term mechanism to maintain the sound development of the real estate market and urged adherence to the principle that "housing is for living in, not speculation."

Home gives one the SENSE of BELONGINGNESS!
With home prices rising faster than income and reaching out of ownership within one generation but increase to three, just like in Japan; it is not doing any good to China.
This economic model simply manifests itself a bubble economy.
