Description

“Young adults in China, eg post 90s, show a more welcoming attitude towards renting. However, that is because they are willing to spend more of their income in improving living quality when they are tenants. They still hold a strong mind-set at owning a property of their own. To attract them, showing empathy to the pressure they are undertaking and offering them chances to demonstrate identification, eg for their hometowns, is an opportunity.”

– Aaron Guo, Associate Director of Research, China

This report examines the following issues:

  • How post-90s react to housing needs?
