“Well, real estate is always good, as
far as I'm concerned.”
Just like in North American cities, condominiums in China are
sold by sales representatives in sales offices.
These offices feature large scale models of what the buildings will
look like. The main difference is where a developer in Toronto may plan
to build one or maybe two towers, in Changchun, the big developers will
build huge communities up of twenty buildings or more.
The developers in Changchun advertise in the newspapers and with
billboards. This illuminated sign for is urging wealthy Chinese to buy
expensive condos so they can rent their units to foreigners.
Chinese landlord! What would Mao think of that?
Chinese developers use prestigious names for their condominium
buildings, just like the developers in Toronto. However, this sign did
confuse when I first saw it. I thought that it was the reception area
for a European dance studio.
