Do they mean buy or lease for 50-70 years? I bet it's the latter.

They think dumb laowais don't know what overpriced is, are oblivious to enviornmental pollution like themselves, their contracting economy, and numb to the open animosity against foreigners, the differences between how they treat foreigners and foreign companies years ago and today?

Why would anyone want to buy property in this god-awful and crumbling country?

If you don't have a wife or family in China, that can jointly own a home with you... DO NOT PURCHASE one as an individual. Don't even consider it. Chinese laws are ambiguous and their banking system is the worst I have seen towards foreigners. In addition, I didn't see any mention of visa benefits for buying a place. Great? So you can own a home here but you can't live in it? They don't want foreigners in China, they only want their money. They are only opening sales up because they are forced to remedy the ghost-town real estate situation that a major part of their economy is built upon.

My wife and I bought one together, I had to get to the U.S embassy to inform them I bought one for a strange reason, but if they offer a green card Id have my wife sell it to me and than I go after the green card hahaha. We can even do that fake divorce to make it work haha.

Why would anyone care to buy something equal to Section 8 for about a million bucks? And since there are no visa strings attached it would be far worse to buy. Save your money, reinvest at home. Do what they do, save your money and do something good with it. Living in china is renting. the housing is all project like. Not worth more than 50k tops
