From the 1970s to 1980s, the housing of urban residents in China was generally provided by their working units as welfare, and were generally small and allocated on a seniority basis according to their length of service, professional ranks and other qualifications. Later, the Chinese government carried out a reform on the housing policy, and implemented the housing fund system nationwide. It established a new housing system consisting of economically affordable housing, low-rent housing and commercial housing. Residents are now encouraged to purchase housing on their own. Nowadays, many residents buy their housing on mortgage, and the government is actively putting into effect a series of favorable policies to improve the housing conditions of urban residents.
