"Juwai is a real estate site that helps Chinese buyers obtain U.S. real estate. An article on the site tells what is a better investment in U.S. real estate. It does not recommend buying foreclosures because the U.S. usually builds timber houses, the owners only live there a few years, the houses lack maintenance and the listings are poor quality and need overhauling. The writer does suggest buying housing in college towns where an 8 percent net return on investment can be expected, or buying commercial for an expected 5 to 6 percent return, not high but a gradual stable rise."
