November home prices accelerate
(12-18 11:55)

The price of homes in big cities continued to rise from a year earlier in November, despite Beijing’s efforts to cool the market.
New home prices increased month on month in 66 of the 70 major cities monitored by the government last month, up from 65 in October, the National Bureau of Statistics said Wednesday.
Average home prices climbed 0.6 percent in November from the previous month, slowing from a 0.7-percent rise in October as local governments ramped up supply of affordable housing and strengthened policies to curb purchasing, according to the bureau's statistician Liu Jianwei.
Compared with a year ago, all the cities except Wenzhou in eastern Zhejiang Province reported gains in new home prices last month, NBS said.
