Real Estate 101

I love travelling to China. In Shenzhen, five years ago, the big buzz was about the new link between western Shenzhen (Lo Wu) and Hong Kong. This was supposed to ease travel from Hong Kong into the growing parts of western Shenzhen.

I casually remarked that now would be a pretty good time to buy property in Lo Wu.

Early this morning, I checked out Google Earth. The link is here. Note the large amount of heavy construction in Lo Wu (upper left peninsula, lower right is Hong Kong). I’m still betting this is going to be the nicest part of Shenzhen when the bridge is done, and only 30 min from the airport. Anyone know if the bridge will connect into Hong Kongs MTR?

And for those of you who aren’t yet selling to Huawei, here’s a shot of the HQ.

I need to get back to China.

    I prefer Thailand to China myself, but then I haven’t done HK yet.

  2. Hong Kong is the best city in the world. But I haven’t been to Singapore, nor have I been to Thailand.

  3. I work in Hong Kong and live in SZ. The price level difference is 3 times between the two. Chinese property is a good long-term investment (10-15 years) because the fast-growing Chinese middle class, but it will have short-term price pressure because the recent government market interference to suppress speculation.
