China's urban housing marketisation hinges on a sensible ratio of housing price to rent. This research derives a rational level for such a ratio and examines its distortions under the Chinese system. It shows that the prevailing housing price to rent ratios are higher than the rational level for both subsidised and free-market housing. Unique Chinese housing market equilibria are analysed and policy recommendations on commercialising Chinese urban housing are suggested
