The key points of the guideline include that if a couple buys a commercial home within three years of divorce, the number of homes they own is calculated according to the total number of homes owned by the family before the divorce. Adjust the VAT exemption period, individuals will purchase less than 5 years of housing for foreign sales, the full amount of VAT levied. The Opinions emphasized strict management of commercial housing sales. We will strictly put on record plans for the sale of newly built commercial housing. We will strictly implement various management systems for commercial housing sales, such as “one-price clearance” and “real-name system”. We will improve the lottery system for selecting apartments for newly built commercial housing, giving priority to families without a home who want to buy apartments for their own use.
Securities reporter in China also reported on January 22, the Shanghai real estate market in 2020 ushered in a steady increase in volume and price, the turnover has been climbing all the way, especially in November and December Shanghai real estate market “warm winter” hot, hot plate, hot real estate market “hot grab”. According to the statistics of Tongce Real Estate Consulting, in December 2020, there were more than 30 newly opened real estate projects in Shanghai, with the approval rate of more than 20 projects exceeding 100%, and the number of 13 projects exceeding 1,000 groups. A few months ago, one of the most popular projects in Shanghai’s new housing market saw 13 people bidding for a single apartment. The first apartment in the project won 7 million yuan in a lottery, and the second apartment even cost 13 million yuan.
It is worth noting that the media learned from the Shanghai Housing Administration Bureau that following the “Shanghai ten policies” on the night of January 21st, today the Shanghai property market regulation has landed one after another, and the legal auction of houses has been included in the purchase restriction. On the judicial auction page of the public auction network, bidders participating in the bidding should be determined in advance to have the qualification to buy a house in this city, that is, the single limit to buy one set, family limit to buy two sets. After the auction is confirmed, if the buyer is not qualified to buy a house in the city, he or she will bear the legal consequences such as regreting the auction according to law.
“Cyclical forces, the need to avoid risk and improve under the epidemic situation, the need to fight inflation, the old reform, the education reform of citizens, the relaxation of talent settlement, these six forces have formed the current heat of the property market.” Yang Hongxu, vice president of Shanghai E-house Real Estate Research Institute, said Shanghai’s property market is a reasonable release of demand after a three-year slump.
The Shanghai property market to usher in regulation, the Institute of E-house think tank research director Yan Yuejin believes that the policy is timely, but also very comprehensive, involving land, purchase restrictions, credit, taxes and other content, fully reflects the Shanghai stable housing prices, stable expectations of the guidance. By adjusting the VAT exemption period, the transaction tax cost of second-hand houses increases and the phenomenon of preventing some landlords from buying and selling houses quickly helps to promote the stability of second-hand house transactions. Similar policies have a great impact on subsequent second-hand house transactions.
