  3. 4. <ul><li>Why don’t wealthy Chinese buy a second home here in China? </li></ul><ul><li>What have the these potential buyers looked at around America? </li></ul><ul><li>What did American brokers do for other Chinese who are not ready to jump on a plane to the US? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you think is the reason that Chinese come to America to buy houses? </li></ul><ul><li>For Americans, why is it not a bad thing to buy houses in America? What did they feel when Japanese bought out New York? </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>After months of bad news for the US housing market, perhaps a bit of good news could be coming, thanks to buyers from thousands of miles away. 3.9 million houses are for sale in this country ,many at bargain-basement prices. And now these deals have caught the eye of investors from China. ABC’s David Curley reports from both countries. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Packing for his first trip to America, Yin Guohao is not heading to the US for business or fun. He is house hunting. &quot;It's a good time,&quot; he says, &quot;to buy property in the US.&quot; &quot;It's Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York&quot; This Beijing lawyer and a few dozen other well-to-do Chinese signed up for a real estate tour of the US. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>Many wealthy Chinese, flush with cash, are looking for investment opportunities. So why not buy a second home here in China? Because the Chinese like a good deal. With the US housing market down double digits they are coming here shopping for a bargain. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;This is a two-bedroom, three-bath...&quot; Looking to spend between 500,000 and a million dollars, these potential buyers have looked at everything, from foreclosed homes to high-rise condos with the view of that all American icon, the Statue of Liberty. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>For others not ready to jump on a plane to the US, American brokers are setting up shop inside China with models, DVD tours and brochures. &quot;Which property do you think is more preferable to you?&quot; &quot;I think this one.&quot;   </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I think Chinese are the clever ones. They are coming now. We are down in prices. We are not down in values. They are buying.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>For Americans battered by a disastrous housing market, that may not be a bad thing. </li></ul><ul><li>“ We love it .We welcome it. Remember how scared we were of the Japanese buying out New York City. Look! Welcome to the Chinese.” </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Yin thinks New York is very cool. Will he buy a piece of America? He wants to sleep on that. But with more than three and a half million homes for sale in the US, he may be just the beginning of a wave of Chinese buyers. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>David Curley, ABC News, New York . </li></ul>
