The State Council, China's cabinet, announced plans to raise minimum down-payments and loan rates for second home buyers in cities where prices have experienced a rapid increase. Additionally, the Chinese government has stated it would enforce a 20 percent capital gains tax on the sale of existing homes.

"The actual impact of the new policy can be very severe or not severe at all, depending on implementation. But the wording is unexpectedly harsh," said Yao Wei, China economist at Societe Generale CIB. "In three months' time, the impact may not be big at all. But it has stirred very high negative expectations."
