Chinese Homebuyers Look Overseas in Real Estate Binge

China’s new home sales growth slowed in October from a year earlier, suggesting the push by policy makers to rein in runaway prices is getting traction.

The value of homes sold rose 38 percent to 941 billion yuan ($138 billion) last month from a year earlier, according to Bloomberg calculations based on data the National Bureau of Statistics released Monday. The increase compares with a 61 percent gain the previous month.
