With the rise of house prices, more and more rich people gather here, and the consumption level of surrounding supermarkets and restaurants has naturally increased a lot. However, the family income of Xiaozhang is not high. Her mother’s income is 4000 yuan, and her father is a part-time worker. She is still a graduate student. Therefore, family consumption is basically maintained by her mother. There are many such examples at home, Zhang said. In primary and secondary schools, students around are also poor families.
Many netizens said: This is groaning without illness! Since life is so hard, why not sell the house and buy a house in other places in Shenzhen? 15 million to sell the existing house, with half of the money to Longgang or other places can buy a villa, the rest of the money deposited in the bank is enough for the rest of life, why so hard to support, miserable? Now, her parents are arguing every day about whether to sell their house and live in a second tier city. Although it was a good time to buy a house, the house was just needed and could not be converted into wealth. The people living there did not become “rich people”.
But can they sell their houses as soon as they sell them? First of all, we have to understand that fixed assets can not be realized at any time, especially for large assets like houses. For those who have only one set of local real estate, even if they want to sell their houses for cash in a hurry, they may have to wait for months or more for more than half a year before someone comes to inquire about the price, and it may not be able to sell them successfully.
Office workers in the “rich area”: high consumption, but also trying to save money
Shekou line 2 is recognized as the place where “Shenzhen natives” live. There are few villages in the city, where the cost of living is much higher than in other areas. Zale works in architectural design and rents a community house on the edge of the maritime world. The shopping center is just outside, and the museum and art exhibition are at the door. We can often see business and cultural elites, industrial tycoons and rich people driving luxury cars, as well as blonde foreigners who often tell friends that Shekou’s ecological environment is really first-class.
But Mr. Zale said he was “poor” even though he lived in a rich neighborhood. His monthly income is 15K, but most of his salary is spent on rent and living expenses. Zale rented a house near the sea world for 4280 yuan a month, and the food and shopping prices around were extremely high. However, it has reduced a lot of expenses in life. Only buy discount fast fashion brand clothes, try to take public transport to reduce transportation costs. Others often urge him to “leave the rich, it’s too expensive to spend,” but Zale doesn’t want to be too far away from the company.
Today, many families in Shenzhen have spent all their savings to buy houses in Shenzhen. All the income, except for the mortgage and car loan, is very little left, living hard in this city. The reason why we can’t sell our house for a living is that children have to go to school and they need a degree. The degree is closely related to the house. Once the house is lost, the child is faced with no schooling. Perhaps you will say: can sell the house, go back home, he does not smell?
It’s not that simple. The hometown does have a comfortable life, the scenery of hometown and the care of parents. However, there is no suitable job and no enthusiasm for struggle in hometown. Some people say that the pressure of economic life is too great now. There are many things rising. Besides the house price, the price is also rising. If you have money, it’s better to save a few more houses. Maybe the house you buy will also increase the house price?
