[photopress:video_beijing.jpg,full,alignright]Business executives who are coming to China to work and live and therefore need an apartment can take a video tour online.
ToRent.cn, a new video-based website, makes videos of rental properties which are then posted on the website, along with pictures and much other detailed information. At the moment the service is restricted to Beijing but it is planning to expand to Shanghai, which has the largest expatriate community in China. In the near future, the company hopes to expand to other major Chinese cities where there is an active expatriate community.
The founder of ToRent.cn, Bill Han, is a veteran of Time Warner, the world’s largest media company, where he worked for many years. He is very familiar with the property scene in Beijing. The site, as it stands, still has a fair amount of work needed but the essential idea is there. When the videos are all up and viewable it should be an useful source of real estate information.
