Investors\\\\\\\\\\' plan for Chinese housing development hits snag
Investor already had Chinese purchasers for all the potential homes lined up and presold
After assembling and purchasing the land, investor discovered that receiving the visas wouldn't be as simple as they originally thought
Somebody on the investor's team didn't do their due diligence
Investor is now stuck with the land and will eventually
do something with it (sell it off to somebody else, build something, or hold on to it as an investment)
