First of all ,In order to stop the rapidly increasing housing price tend, People’s Bank of China abolish the preferential policy for housing loans and raise the mortgage interest rates in commercial banks. Secondly, tougher measures required that the ratio of the houses with gross floor area of less than 90 square meters to the total constructed houses shall not be less than 70%. Houses with bigger floor areas than 90 square meters were all subject to 30% down payment percentage. Therefore, for some the customers, they may drop the idea of buying a house and turn to rent a house. Because of these measures, the demand of buying a house dropped. And because it will be harder to get a loan and will cost more to build a house, the supplier were not willing to build new buildings to sell.

From figure 2, it is easy to find out that because of the measures, the supply slope move to the right, the demand slope move to the left which lead to a lower price.
