According to Ma Anping, head of research at Jones Lang LaSalle, the situation is likely to intensify in the future. Property prices are expected to rise by at least 15% in the next two and a half years. As prices continue to rise, developers and others can consider developing shared living space. On the one hand, they can reduce the expenses on housing for each family and at the same time, the rental income of investors can rise.
