Real-estate investment in China continued to decline in the first half of the year, as property sector turmoil continued even under Beijing’s eased policies.

Property investment for the first half of the year dropped 5.4% from a year earlier, accelerating from the 4.0% drop in the first five months of the year, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Friday.

Home sales by volume, a key indicator of demand, fell 31.8% from a year earlier in the first six months of 2022. That compares with the 34.5% decrease marked in the January to May period, signaling an improvement, the data showed.

New construction starts measured by floor area dropped 34.4% in the first half, widening from the 30.6% fall in the first five months of the year
