Since 2013, Changhe Department has continued to shrink the front in the mainland property market. For example, in 2013, it sold Guangzhou Xicheng Dushui Plaza and Shanghai Dongfang Huijin center; in 2014, it successively transferred Nanjing International Financial Center building, Changyuan group equity, Beijing Yingke center, Chongqing metropolitan and Shanghai Shengbang international building; in 2016, it sold 50% equity of Lujiazui Century Plaza; in October last year, Changshi group transferred Dalian Xigang project to rongchuang, with a total transaction price of more than 100% Over 4 billion yuan. According to incomplete statistics from the financial press, since 2013, the Li Ka Shing family has sold properties in the mainland and Hong Kong, China for several times, with a cash out amount of more than HK $115 billion.

Part of the projects transferred by Changhe department have been developed for a long time and reached its investment expectation. Therefore, the reason why it is expected that the property market will continue to grow conservatively is related to the fact that some projects in the mainland will continue to grow in a conservative manner. Although it has sold some projects, it still has a lot of assets in the mainland. Lu Wenxi said in an interview with reporters.

According to the investment manager of a foreign-funded real estate agency in Shanghai, Li Jiachengs family often considers giving priority to the disposal of assets that are not easy to realize, such as commercial projects.

Due to the large amount of commercial assets involved, there are few buyers who can take over in the market, so they often choose to sell them when the market is still in the rising period. The other is the commercial and residential retail projects which are in the end of development and need to invest a certain amount of funds in the follow-up. A lot of funds have been recovered in the early stage of these projects, and a certain amount of energy and financial resources should be invested in the closing stage. If the projects are not located in the core location of the first and second tier cities, they may choose to transfer the equity of the projects for cash out. Said the real estate investment manager.
