“In light of the unfavorable market environment, we continue to focus on expanding our business in our existing cities and establishing our presence in additional tier-three cities. We believe it is important to diversify our geographic and client mix in light of the policy impact on tier-one and tier-two cities,” Xin Zhou, E-House’s executive chairman stated in the press release. “Our recent successful launch of a project developed by Country Garden in a township near Nanjing, where we sold nearly 2,000 units on the day of launch, demonstrates our ability to execute major projects and deliver value for our clients in challenging market conditions, and also indicates that underlying demand for real estate purchase remains strong. Meanwhile, our online business segment continues to show impressive growth in market share and revenue, taking advantage of developers’ increased efforts to market their products.”
