Home price in major Chinese cities grew at a slower pace in February. Fewer cities recorded month-on-month price rises, official data show.

Prices for existing homes gained 6.4 percent year on year, compared with an average growth of 7.4 percent in January, according to the statement.
On a month-on-month basis, in 57 out of the statistical pool of 70 cities, new home prices increased, fewer than 62 cities in January. Prices dropped in four cities and stayed unchanged from a month ago in the other nine cities.
For existing homes, prices increased in 46 cities month on month, down from 48 cities in the previous month. Prices dropped in 15 cities and stayed flat in nine cities, the NBS said.—Xinhua
