Development of China Mainland Real Estate

Referring to real estate in China mainland, we have to talk about its development in this decade. Going through the bad influence of 2008, and later booming development, now China real estate has entered into a stable situation however it dose not mean there is the rate which the housing price still walk to low according to past real case about Vanke industry. So let us have a look about the prediction of real estate in China, also the future development of real estate in China.

On the one hand, the demographic dividend, urbanization and other factors that support high housing prices, are gradually weakening. On the other hand, the development mode of local governments to sell land and blindly borrow money is also not long lasting. And when the government uses executive hand, it can no longer push up housing prices, perhaps it is time to roll out about the real estate tax.


In the past twenty years, anyone who has predicted the fall in house prices has almost miscalculated. Mr. Ren Zhiqiang, as the “dead enemy” of the Real Estate market, fulfilled his predictions one by one, so that many people firmly believed in his “big rise and small fall” rule of housing prices. So it means the total tendency of housing prices will be raised in the future. In Mr. Ren Zhiqiang’s view, the trend of house prices in the future is still upward, mainly based on the fact that the urbanization process will not be broken, even if it reaches the urbanization rate of 70% to 80% in developed countries, the rule of “big rise and small fall” will not be broken.


So, this decline in house prices as continuing to spread and deepen then eventually become a watershed to change China’s house prices for many years strong soaring, or China’s real estate market is really special with only rising and not falling? I think nobody may give a proper answer for that. Only the market of development tell something.


But one thing is for sure, there are no commodities and markets that only keep rising and falling. Today, compared with 10 years ago, the supply and demand of the real estate market, especially the purchasing power of the people in China, has changed dramatically and this change is no longer supporting the continued rise of housing prices. Human history has long proved that in the face of enormous debt pressure, any asset can not avoid the consequence of devaluation.

We may save enough money to build a house for the family then completely satisfy own wish or dream. These all are worthy but how to build a house with regular methods? Certainly, no matter how, the basic requirement as quality is important such as stainless steel nail is much better than iron nail. So materials choice should be from qualified suppliers or online great B2B trade platform. Today we will discuss about this topic below,

Good Site Choice

Actually as the simple and first method, finding a site is always to make the most of people to feel headache. Because we have to consider many factors.

  • Ground Stability

This is important thing to be cared by you because the not stable ground will ruin your warm house as high rate. So normally we avoid to build the house on the ground with mucky soil, shifting sand or so on. Perhaps some contractors may consider to pile on this kinds of ground, but I suggest stable ground is always your best choice.

  • Natural Conditions

Climate always influences your life environment, normally we will choose the site far away the area with flood, hurricane, Tsunami and some other disasters to be happened usually. This is main reason that prevent more harm for residents.

  • Nearby Conditions

Normally we would like to choose the area with convenient facilities such as police station, good quality schools, supermarket for shopping and some good restaurants to taste savory foods, certainly, hospital or clinic is also considered.

Building Foundation

  • Excavation for The Plot

Related building workers have to survey the dimension of the foundation, then stake and prepare pile around the foundation.

  • Concrete Preparation

After the foundation and pile are ready, then as the second method, we need to pour the concrete into the foundation. Normally it will bear some weight, and concrete area should be wider than the wall of foundation such as the perimeter of house to distinguish ground and home.

  • Building lines and Floors

Workers have to prepare batter boards, corner stakes for each corner of the foundation. To Make sure the build lines are level and square, then to check by measuring corner to corner. Certainly, for floors, you may choose “pier and bean” or “slab on grade”.

Walls And Roof

The basic needs are housewrap, lumber, nails, adhesives and felt paper. After that, Carpenters will get ready to frame the house wall including ceiling, floor and roof skeleton. The next method is for install the doors, windows or maybe skylight as need after wall and roof frame has been built.
