For the January-August period, the average sales volume of the top 100 real estate developers reached 73.09 billion yuan (about 10.7 billion U.S. dollars), up 4.9 percent year on year, said the report by China Index Academy, a property research institution.

The report showed that 19 real estate companies saw their sales volume top 100 billion yuan and 130 companies had sales revenue over 10 billion yuan in the first eight months of this year.

As the COVID-19 epidemic tapers off in the country, the property industry is gradually warming up, said the report.
