Q: Down payment of home if it is the second home of my wife but my first home in Jinan?

My wife is Chinese I am American.  3 years ago she put her name on a house in Chengdu.  Now we want to buy a home in Jinan close to her family.  Normally this is my first home in China and it is our first home since we marry.  But because it is her second home I herd I had to have 60% of the homes down paymen.  That is a lot of money and I am not sure how to get this kind of money so quick,,,,, I can not get a loan in america for China home........  Is it true i need 60%

I've never heard of that sort of percentage...it could be true but I doubt it. Usually the seller will make adjustments and will try to make a deal with you. I think normally the seller wants 60% but deals can always be made if they know your serious and that you will be on time with your payments!

If you're American, why do you write like a Chinese person? And yet this is the sort of post an actual American would write. I'm confused...

property records are by province. jinan does not know about her property in chengdu unless her national id number is own the documents. for a second home , a large down payment is required , i have been told 50 percent and the interest rate will be higher. best bet is put it in her mom or dads name and make a will that it passes to her in estate. this avoids the large payment and higher rate.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
