Tell that to the people who buy homes at very high prices and then can't sell them without losing their investment.

The housing market in China saw a boom following the global financial crisis, with home price more than quadrupling between 2005 and 2013. But in recent years, real-estate enthusiasm led to rising leverage and ballooning levels of inventories that led to ghost towns in many parts the country.

No big deal

It's common for CAPITALIST countries to make mistakes due to EUPHORIA.
Overbuilding JUST MEANS oversupply and CONTRACTED NEW CONSTRUCTION period only.
BUT as China moves from a 7% growth plus economy to a 5% growth plus economy <with labour supply crunch> - it'll take time for the STOCK of PRIVATE HOUSING to be absorbed.

Other sectors of the economy needs to PULL UP THEIR PANTS and work to neutralized the effects.

Just common sense, OF COURSE now CHINA has many more OPTIONS compared to 1999.

Cheerios!

China is dealing with overbuilding in the property sector. So if the authorities let the market forc ...

China needs to RESTRUCTURE it's economy now.

from just fulfilling basic needs, going for saturation - now it needs to develop QUALITY and SPEC IN range of DURABLE & CONSUMABLES. That need a COMPLETE REVAMP of industrial, commercial, retail, service business models.

what CHINA now face is just probably a 10 year stock of MIDDLE CLASS housing <at present STATE values, standards>. Economic restructuring will see CHANGES in TASTE for what's considered "MIDDLE CLASS" housing standards, and the rise of a PROFESSIONAL CLASS of "MIDDLE INCOME" working class citizenry.

TALENTS in buisness is needed to SEEK the PRODUCTS, SERVICES to fulfill the needs.

THERE will be WINNERS and LOSERS, and a lot of DEVELOPMENT as the market grapples with MARKET FORCES at work.  This is a CRITICAL STAGE in China's development.

for example LARGE E&E would need NEW DURABLE, or CAPITAL ASSET winners - to build up their BALANCE SHEET, they would need this to have the PROFITABILITY as the rise of SOCIAL SECURITY PENSION system will mean LIQUIDITY will be searching for blue chip DIVIDEND PAYING corporates - and E&E companies are just 1 category.

or such matters, complex changes

I simply don't belive a unit, without its own land to stand on, worth that much.

I would be better  ...

Probably you would lose.

Still waiting for the NEWS from MIDEA or HAIER on new business diversification..........

..........so many possibilities.
Did any CORPORATE LEADERS study the likes of HITACHI, MITSUBISHI or FUJITSU?

I reckon, if CHINA produce it's indigenous ATM machine - it's a US$40 billion a year business at SATURATION!
and so many such opportunities. Maybe a new GAMEBOX from Midea or Haier - that is a US$ billion DURABLE.

ha ha ha

Cheerios!
