China Daily英语点津 用的是pre-owned houses
http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/lan ... content_5446502.htm

China Daily 另一篇新闻报道里pre-owned houses 却是指“期房”
http://en.ce.cn/Industries/Prope ... 0724_12291692.shtml

应该各打五十大板。

最常见的是 resale homes。

house 一般特指独立房子,home是总称,包括独立、公寓、等。

pre-owned 可以,但在房地产少见,二手车用得多。

The sales prices of pre-owned houses jumped by 7.8 percent in June. ---> The average selling price of resale homes jumped by 7.8 percent in June.

也叫做 existing homes

Sales of existing homes fall
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13572256/

Sales of existing homes in May fell for the third time in five months, with the weakness led by a big drop in the Northeast.

The National Association of Realtors reported Tuesday that sales of previously owned homes dropped by 1.2 percent in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 6.67 million units.

Sales of existing homes, which account for about 80 percent of the home sales market, have been posting declines for most of this year while new home sales have been rising recently, including a 4.5 percent increase for May.

"pre-owned house" is not incorrect

Hey, laoxianggg and jl2315
Thanks for your suggestions. And I will try my best to make the essay on “二手房” perfect.

Then could you read the following conversation between Addie and Matt? Matt is a native American.

--Hey, Matt, excuse me. A subscriber to the website's forum points out a mistake in the article http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/cndy/2007-07/24/content_5441853.htm. He says that the expression of "pre-owned house" should be replaced with "resale home" or "existing home" or "previously owned home."
--Those are other terms. "re-owned house" is not incorrect. It is frequently used.

--Is "pre-owned" commonly used in auto industries?
--Yes. Those are called "pre-owned cars", or more commonly, "used cars". Expressions can refer to more than one thing in English.

--That is to say, the terms of "resale home," "existing home," "previously owned home" and  "pre-owned house" are equally correct, aren't they?
--They are alternative terms that can also be used. I think in general Chinese people have a misconception that there's a single right or wrong answer to everything. It doesn't work that way. There are a variety of terms that often describe the same thing. None is more right or wrong
