Maybe because it’s the capital of an upcoming economic, militaristic and “populistic”? (Dunno if that is a word tho) country. But they have enough choice, because China literally has more than 120 cities with 1M+ inhabitants, so enough big citites to choose from amirite

It’s not “buying” if you have to give it back eventually...even if you’re dead and it won’t affect you, your kids will be the ones dealing with it, won’t they? How does that process even work?
Leonard Wong (3 months ago)
What are the housing prices and industries in the other cities? Industrial decentralization planning could help ease this. It'll be a big disaster if the entire batch grow old and don't have enough to survive, having spent all on rent. Still, they could always move to low cost remote areas as they age. But that's kind of sad, to work so hard in youth only to have to retire in a technologically backward remote city to die.

I could understand these prices for Shanghai or Shenzhen, but not for Beijing. In my own personal opinion, Shanghai and Shenzhen are more "internationally welcoming" cities, for both international business and pleasure. I own a home in Zhuhai, in Guangdong proverence. I think the prices here are much more reasonable, especially for investment as it's a fast growing city. It's a quick ferry ride to Hong Kong for flights/banking/visits, the Macao boarder is about 5 minutes by taxi and the speed rail station is also about 5 minutes away if I want to travel to Guangzhou or Shenzhen for business. I also have a home in America and New Zealand, so the prices and convince were both better suited for my personal needs.

Have followed the housing market in China since a decade, the government already then talked about it, and repeats every year same mantra like a broken record the need for curbing the quickly rising prices in many Chinese cities, not only BJ, but NOTHING happens, this had one lead to think it's all part of a population control, too expensive living means many people will not have kids. Well, a Chinese friend with insight told that China is heading for a planned population decline by 2030. The very same trend happens also here in Finland, we have the lowest birth rate since.... the famine 1866-1868, 150 years ago, and this trend has been going on for over 6 years, and this trend goes on in many other EU countries too, look up age nda 2I.

This is all special interests. Government can easily ease zoning restrictions and building permits and see supply increase overnight. But people who are rich enough to own homes and developers don't want to see property prices halve overnight.

"Owning a home is considered a sign a success" Meh. I've seen many riches choose to live in apartment instead, with their cars and luxurious furnitures inside. And i've also seen many poor people owning proper home, but with questionable contract deal (that will bite them back later) and sap away what little money they have. So, nope.
Trinh Nguyen (3 months ago)
Lei Zhang Exactly and a home does not necessarily mean a house but can be an apartment or condo. My cousin just sold her big 2 story house in Washington state and moved into a condo as all her kids have moved out so she downsized to a smaller house to save money.
felix patikawa (3 months ago)
When chinese people speaks about owning a home it means that they dont need to pay rent, the property is theirs ( apartment is a property too )
Lei Zhang (3 months ago)
You don't know our concept of a home. When us Chinese talk about home, most of the time we mean an apartment. The bigger the better, of course.

Sungsoo (William) Na (3 months ago)
Still, cities like Beijing and Shanghai deserve to have high proterty prices becasue they both are an international city.
Lei Zhang (3 months ago)
BooBees English was not an international language until early 19th century. Chinese not being an international language now doesn’t mean it will never be an international language ever. More and more kids around the world are starting to learn Chinese including Trump’s granddaughter. You can’t possibly tell me they aren’t learning the language thinking Chinese might be useful for them one day.
BooBees (3 months ago)
Ibilly999 YT you’re saying that Chinese is an international language because many people speak it?
Ibilly999 YT (3 months ago)
Andrew Frolov everyone in a city can speak English in China, but Chinese is also an international language
BooBees (3 months ago)
pink Fungi it’s not the most spoken language but it is the most relevant. Go to Europe or Africa or Australia or any other continent in the world. How is mandarin going to help there?
Poemi10304 (3 months ago)
Andrew Frolov The mainland is not the same as HK. They don’t have the history of British influence. It’s like the Chinese coming to the US and expecting you to speak Mandarin. Not going to happen in most places, right? You gonna learn Mandarin for Chinese interviews? Maybe if you live in California, lol

I don’t agree when she said most middle class are fake. Middle class is not exempt from mortgage or any credit issues, especially when a city is overly expensive.
Joseph (3 months ago)
Chinese, like any other, have this "Grass is greener on the other side of fence" mentality. They don't know the fact that in most developed countries middle class people usually pay mortgage to the age of retirement.
HappyRussians (3 months ago)
Eh, I think you should get your notions updated. I mean, yeah "middle class" is not the same in Beijing, and say, somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Yunnan. There is a huge wealth gap in tier 1 cities such as Beijing or Shanghai. A banal white collar would earn about 2000-3000 RMB per month, that's barely enough to live like "upper" class. Just because they are able to show it off by saving money and blow it once every 2 years doesn't mean then. Also, anyway, most newly wed couples' houses are actually bought by (usually the husbands') parents.
N14 (3 months ago)
HappyRussians in asian countries, white collars are upper class working proletariats, rich enough to live a class life but not poor enough to be classified as such.
HappyRussians (3 months ago)
N14 : What about white collars that neither own a business nor invest in any? You know, your typical urban Chinese.
N14 (3 months ago)
HappyRussians no, what she means is that theres only the working proletariat and the borgeiouse. Business owners and investors are either of the two but theres no middleground.
