Cai Liping – William Blair

Hi good evening everyone. The first question is regarding the pricing change you are seeing for secondary properties. Are you seeing our service are being more willing to lower price and is that a main reason more transactions you are seeing following the Chinese New Year?

Harry Lu

Actually what we see, you know, the data we show actually is for the end of last year. But right after the Chinese New Year – but right now after the Chinese New Year we’ve just seen our transaction volume actually pick up and you know, because you know, the price is still remain in a relatively low level.

But at this stage we don’t see that further down of the price at least for in our recent period. You know see that the price is also being stabilized at this moment. That’s for secondary market. But we’ve just seen some of the developers are pretty lower price tag, try to, you know attract more buyers to sell the party. But in secondary, the transaction volume pick up and the price has been stable for a while.
