Sales of forward delivery commercial housing in Beijing totaled 10,862 units (excluding 1,972 units of policy-favorite apartments), or 350 units daily -- 9.1 percent lower from the daily sales of 385 units in June, according to statistics released on the city's housing transaction management authority website.

During the same month, a total of 6,653 units of apartments were sold in Guangzhou in July, a decline of 36 percent compared with the 10,502 units transacted in June.
