China’s top 100 developers saw home sales slump further in July, indicating a widening mortgage boycott crisis emerging around the country has further weighed on buyer confidence.

Combined contract sales plunged 39.7% from a year earlier to 523.1 billion yuan ($78 billion), according to preliminary data compiled by China Real Estate Information Corp., as demand remained stagnant amid an economic downturn despite government efforts to stimulate purchases.
