BEIJING, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) -- More Chinese cities posted monthly home price declines in October following the government's campaign to calm the runaway property market.

In October, 34 cities in a statistical pool of 70 major cities saw declines in new home prices from September, compared with 17 in September, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday.

New home prices in 20 cities stayed flat last month from September, and the growth rates of home prices in the other cities were all below 0.2 percent, according to an NBS statement on its website.

On a year-on-year basis, two cities -- Wenzhou and Ningbo in eastern China's Zhejiang Province -- out of the 70, saw prices decline in October, compared with one in September. Gains of new home prices eased in 59 cities, the statement said.

Prices of new homes in the four top cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, saw month-on-month price drops after staying unchanged for three months.
