When we asked expats in China if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Foreigners are generally not allowed to own property in China. However, there are certain exceptions. For example, foreign investors may be able to purchase property in certain areas designated for foreign investment. Additionally, foreign nationals who have obtained permanent residence in China may be able to purchase property in certain areas. In all cases, the foreign individual must obtain the necessary permits and approvals from the local government before purchasing property," commented one expat who made the move to China.
