Buy a house in Shanghai


If you want to buy a newly-decorated house, you can directly consult with developers and purchase it if satisfied. Necessary documents for registration will be provided by developers so you don’t have to worry about it.

If you want to purchase a second-hand house, there are two ways to get it:

1. Search information by means of media such as newspaper. Website is another nice choice. A lot of websites are dedicated to offering services of informative references and consultations. You may have to pay for the services sometimes.

2. Look up for trading information in trade market or resort to trading agencies. Service fees can be considerable since they correspond to the price of the deal (Mostly it’s the seller who pays for the fees). You can stay at home and wait for the news from the agency if you take up this way.

The registration courses for house trading have been simplified. Procedures are quite the same for both recently-purchased houses and second-hand trading. You have to prepare all the materials required for registration. These materials include:

1. Application form and trading contract

2. Documents of floor plan and house layout

3. Identity card

4. Assessment report sometimes needed

After handing in the documents, it will take only a little time for house management department to get everything done.
