China Vanke (200002.SH, 000002.SH), the nation’s biggest developer by turnover, said Wednesday that November sales hit US$2.75 billion (RMB17.13 billion), a 25% increase from October and double the figure in the same period last year. Evergrande Real Estate Group (3333.HKG, EV1.FRA), also a large developer, said its November sales rose to US$1.89 billion from US$199 million last year, but fell 17.3% compared to October.
