High prices are crushing demand:
..."opening price is only 3,800 yuan / square meter, now the price has reached 9,500 yuan / square meter, is wishful zone in the sale of the most expensive real estate."

"The biggest area of ​​supply of Hohhot in the east and south, the situation is quite serious with artificially high prices, in the midst of a downward trend in prices, homes with inflated prices are motionless." A real estate market in the cross section officials said.

"Last year, our sales team was given a goal of 2.5 billion yuan, but the actual completion rate is only about half, in September and October we thought there will be a change, but then sales changed little." Wang Hui told reporters.
A lot of projects were also abandoned. There are 174 buildings left unfinished, involving 130,000 households and 500,000 people. Currently there are 382 projects under construction with 193 unfinished.

Perhaps Hohot can attract those new residents and turn its real estate market around, but that means some other city will have lost its chance to recover as the demographic dividend disappears.
