Chinese Housing Price is normal
Do you know what Chinese people pay the most attention to now? The the price of houses of course. Nowa
days, many people in China make every effort to earn money for buying a house. They work day and night. One day they think they have earned enough money and prepare to buy a house——To their surprise, the prices of houses have become much higher! So, many people complain about the high prices. They hope Chinese government can reduce the prices. But I think if we take the whole China into consideration, the housing price is normal. If the houses’ prices decrease, it will cause a series of problems. Just think, many rich investors will not invest in real estate because of low profits, and houses’corporations will not be positive to construct new housing estates; many building workers may lose their jobs as a result. More seriously, many factories may close down such as those which produce cement、 sand、 glass、 bricks. Because the lack of new house buildings, many people people cannot buy new houses, so they needn’t fit up houses, which leads to the low sales volume of TVs、air conditioners、sofas、 tables、 wardrobes、 curtains、 wooden floors…In a word, reducing the prices of houses, every trade will be attacked. The whole economy in China may fade. Consequently, the main chain of fund will be cut. If people have no chance to pay so much money for buying a house, they will save all the money in banks. It’s quite bad for currency’s circulation. Additionally, government cannot get much tax; all the cities in China cannot constuct many excellent public facilities such as Birds'
Nest and Water Cube. Government also cannot do other things that can benefit our people. As a matter of fact, now the prices in big cities are about 25,000 yuan per metre square, While in small cities, they are only about 5,000 yuan, which are much cheaper than big cities'. In big cities, lands and materials are expensive, there is no doubt that the prices are high. We can conclude that the high prices only existence in big cities. In fact small cities' environments are much better. We needn't to bear the heavy traffic and crowded people. People have full reasons to choose to live in small cities. Only complaining about the high price makes no sense. So in this way, government can control the population in big cities, because now big cities are too crowded. I believe that many people hold the opposite opinions, they think the housing prices are abnormal and they want the prices reduced so that they can buy houses. I will give you some reason for that the reduced prices don' t have much relation to people's abilities for buying houses. Even though the price of house has reduced, many people are still unable to buy a house. First, Chinese government cannot reduce much price. For example, the original price is 25,000 yuan per metre square, it may become 23,000 yuan per metre square. It cannot be reduced to 1,000 yuan per metre square; House is still very expensive. A normal size's house needs two million from us! Secondly, I have heard of a housing estate provided twenty houses in 80% discount. They prepared to earn less and do something for people. Only in a day, these house were seld out. All the customers were rich people, they asked their relatives to buy these houses together, and intend to make the price higher at next time. The price is
more remote for poor people. So, the original people who cannot afford a house still cannot buy a house. Not due to the 'abnormal' price. China is developing quite fast in these years, thanks to all the people who work day and night for buying a house to a great extent. If housing price is increasing, anyone’s own original house is also more valuable. People feel themselves richer and richer as China's development so that they can buy more things to promote life level and live in happiness. China needs house industry to promote the whole economy. It is a normal process in a country's development. People in Asia are faces with competition, like Japan and Singapore. So in my opinion, the prices of Chinese houses are normal.
