The rating agency expects residential home prices to remain under pressure over the next few months as developers continue to offer price incentives for projects, said Moody's in a note on Mar 24.
Housing prices remained downward in February, as 52 cities surveyed registered a more than 5 percent decline in home prices, compared to only 38 in January.
According to the report, Hangzhou's decline for the eleventh consecutive month of 0.4 percent was a result of developers' price discounting activities aimed at reducing inventory.
