100 square meters is tiny though, a fraction the size of even a small home in the west.


Not true. When we first get married we use husband and wife salaries to buy some two room apartment in an undesirable part of the town right above a night club that keeps us awake half the night.

As the years go by, we improve the apartment, earn more money and buy a slightly bigger one from the money we got from selling the old one.

anyway, in major city around china, driven by crazy  house-stir campaign, price at remote suburban area are also hiked dramatically


In Chengdu we live in a development where 25% of the apartments are not being lived in and have been bought as an investment. Maybe the Government should tax unoccupied property and combine it with a profit tax We might see an improvement in the numbers of available properties and a corresponding drop in price to a level that more closely reflected people's earnings.

But my experience says buying older properties will make them cheaper. Buying property outside the city will also be cheaper especially if there is no work in that area. They will still increase in price though.

I can't afford a house,especially in Shanghai.
Now just ride the fence.
Housing problem is a big problem to most chinese urban people and graduated students.

I thought this problem was in a popular style,and I thought if our purpose was just everyone needed,we were so poor,and this problem for us should be solved by the one who was demand to it surely!So I thought we needd have a deep consideration with it,and do the right things we needed.
