Buying an Apartment in Beijing

My girlfriend and I have been looking to purchase an apartment in Beijing. We’ve looked in various districts over the past few months.

Our experience from looking at online sites so far is that the following:

  • Pictures
  • Price
  • Area
  • Description
  • Availability

seem to not line-up at all with what one sees when actually the place in person.

And, from talking with both house hunters and agencies, this seems to be well known.

Kinda reminds me of what I’ve heard regarding ordering some other services online.
