Raining hot prices in real estate market China's city governments and ministries have been told to build more low cost housing.

Video: Españistán, de la Burbuja Inmobiliaria a la Crisis

El fenómeno de la burbuja inmobiliaria es producto de una gran cantidad de factores políticos y sociales, nacionales e internacionales, que se suceden y se entrecruzan en una maraña harto compleja.

Wall Street landlords: the empire strikes back & move quickly to evict tenants

How Wall Street has turned housing into a dangerous get-rich-quick scheme  again Over the last year and a half, Wall Street hedge funds and private equity firms have quietly amassed an unprecedented rental empire,  bought more than 200,000  cheap, mostly foreclosed houses in cities hardest hit by the economic meltdown.

Indeed, there is a whiff of Dubai about the Chinese property market at the moment. By one estimate, the vacancy rate of Pudong, the central business district of Shanghai, is as high as 50% This is not to say there's not a real estate bubble in China. Rather, overinvestment and overbuilding is sometimes a prerequisite of an anticipated mass urban migration such as the one China is destined to experience.
