Could the arrival of the year of the dragon rescue the country’s beleaguered property developers? As Chinese new year approaches later this month, tens of thousands of couples are preparing to marry under what is considered an auspicious sign. To win over a bride in a country undersupplied with women, it helps a lot if the aspiring groom first proves his worth by buying a home.
One harbinger of the bloodshed to come is a row that erupted in Shanghai just after Christmas. SOHO China, a big developer, announced that it would buy a 50% stake in prime property near the city’s Bund promenade. It agreed to pay roughly 1 billion yuan ($158m) to Greentown China Holdings and nearly 3 billion yuan to Shanghai Zendai Property, two smaller developers. This outraged Fosun International, a conglomerate that owns the other half of the property, which claimed it had the right of first refusal and is now threatening legal action.

China’s stimulus measures may be starting to wear off, and the central government had engaged in multiple rounds of rate cuts for banks, encouraging the flow of lending into the economy.
