As bonds of developers have fallen, SCMP notes that financing has also become very tight. The report adds that the top 100 developers raised a combined RMB 85bn ($13.2bn) in September, down 37% YoY and financing costs rose 16bp YoY to 5.55%. “Looking forward to the fourth quarter, we think enterprises will maintain a proactive marketing and sales strategy and may offer deeper discounts to drive sales,” the CRIC said.
