WBVDEC Chapter 62 – Crew (1)
When Jiang Yu returned home, after thinking about it for a long time, she felt that the price was too cheap. Could it be that her estimate was too high when in fact, the house price in that community was not that high?
After thinking about it some more, Jiang Yu turned on the computer and searched for the house price in Jinghu Garden Community. She found that even though the developers were eager to liquidate and collect funds as it was end of the year already and many investors were also selling, resulting in a drop in the house price, even so, the price still cost more than 30,000 yuan per square meters. In other words, her house should be able to be bought with less than seven or eight million.
Jiang Yu frowned.
On Sunday, Bei Xiaoxiao came back to Jiang Yu Company for a part-time job, saw this expression and asked, "Taro Ball, what's wrong?"
"I'm thinking about the house."
"House?" Bei Xiaoxiao took a closer look and murmured, "Jinghu Garden? I've been to this neighborhood. It's pretty good. Are you looking for a house? How much?"
"What?" Bei Xiaoxiao almost choked, "3 million? So expensive?" For a student, although she always knew that house price was very expensive, Bei Xiaoxiao was still frightened when she heard that a house cost 3 million. If she did not work part-time in Jiang Yu's company, if she didn't get commission here, with the salary for an internship of only 2,000 or 3,000 yuan a month that price would be far too high. Even if she became an employee she would start as clothing assistant where the salary would also be very meager, so the house price was really ridiculously high.
"Is it expensive? It's actually not expensive." Jiang Yu frowned and placed her hands on her chin. She stared at the screen and pondered, "What if I told you that the house is a 190-square-meter duplex? Do you still think it's expensive? "
"190 square meters?" In addition to the price, Bei Xiaoxiao quickly exclaimed: "Only a little bit more than 10,000 yuan per square meters? The location of Jinghu Garden is not bad. Although it is not in the city center, the transportation is convenient and the environment of the new area is very good, such a place sells for only that much?"
Jiang Yu's brows furrowed even tighter. "Even you think it's too cheap, it means it's really cheap!"
However, Zhuang Donglai was introduced by Gu Shenliu. Jiang Yu firmly believed in Gu Shenliu's ability to do things. Zhuang Donglai could not have sold her the house in question in such low price except...
Jiang Yu suddenly thought of a possibility. She smiled and shook her head helplessly. If it was what she thought, then Gu Shenliu was really too much. A house was not a dollar or two and she was not a fool, she couldn't take advantage of this situation and ignore the issue.
Thinking of this, Jiang Yu called Zhuang Donglai directly.
"Hello, sister-in-law?" Zhuang Donglai said with a smile, "Do you have something to do with me?"
Jiang Yu straight to the point: "It's still about the house."
"House? Didn't you agree to sign the contract tomorrow?"
Jiang Yu raised her lips and smiled: "It's not about signing the contract, it’s just, I think your house there is really worth it. The price of each house is less than half of the market price. Where can I find such a cheap price anywhere else? Well, it just so happens that I have some money on hand, so you can get me a few more sets of that kind of house yesterday."
A few more sets? Zhuang Donglai panicked for a moment, then swallowed quickly: "Haha, sister-in-law, that house was only one set yesterday! There is no more."
"No? Well, then I will buy all the other houses in your hand! I remember that the city garden you showed me that day was only 1.3 million."
When Zhuang Donglai heard this, he sweated. He understood Gu Shenliu's temperament. If he couldn't do what Gu Shenliu told him to do, his life wouldn’t be good in the future! But this house was a resource that Gu Shenliu took from a friend, so that when he transferred the property, Jiang Yu would not see the flaws. After Jiang Yu settled on the house in Jinghu Garden, he returned all the keys to other houses back. Besides, even though Old Gu was rich, if every house was sold 30% or 40% off, wouldn’t this become a big loss? In case he broke up with Jiang Yu in the future...
Thinking of this, Zhuang Donglai hurriedly said, "No, sister-in-law! The other houses are gone and sold out!"
"Sold out?" Jiang Yu suddenly hooked her lips and smiled: "Donglai, I remember Shenliu said, you are an agent of a real estate company?"
"Yes! I am an intermediary!"
Facing Jiang Yu's pressing step by step, Zhuang Donglai could barely cope. He felt sweat on his forehead. He sighed in his heart, this girl! As expected of Gu Shenliu's lover, she was just as difficult!
"I can't see that you have a lot of resources on hand."
"It's okay! Who told me to be a gold medal agent!" Zhuang Donglai made up a reason.
"Well, since you are an intermediary, I hope to sign a contract with your company when I buy the house."
"..." Zhuang Donglai laughed angrily at her, "Wait, sister-in-law, are you saying that you don't trust me?"
Jiang Yu recalled for a moment, and then suddenly said: "Donglai, please act professionally. If you don't understand, you can ask Gu Shenliu for advice. After all, which real estate agent have you seen wearing ordinary clothes but wearing a thumb ring worth tens of millions?" (扳指/bān zhǐ = ornamental thumb ring. Originally a ring, often made from jade, worn by archers in ancient times to protect the right thumb when drawing a bowstring)
Zhuang Donglai was stunned for a moment, never expecting Jiang Yu to be able to see that the thumb ring in his hand was worth a lot of money. To be honest, he wanted to take off the ring yesterday, but the ring was collected by him with a lot of thought and he was used to wearing it. If he didn't touch it for a while, he felt something was missing. He thought that Jiang Yu came from an ordinary family and had never been in contact with this kind of cultural relic, so she probably didn't know it, so he didn't take it off. He just didn't expect that Jiang Yu could see it at a glance!
Zhuang Donglai was speechless when asked, and after a long while he smiled: "Okay! Sister-in-law! It seems that I can't hide it from you, so I'll tell you straight! Old Gu is distressed that you will be tired of looking for a house and doesn't want you to spend money, but he knows that you will never accept if he directly give you one, so he asked me to co-star in a play. You think, Old Gu’s circle is either rich people or top celebrities. Even his former classmates are all top students, where can he have friends who are real estate agents? He has no choice but to pull me out. Since I was discovered by you, I will simply tell you, but don't tell Old Gu or my life will be bad."
The guess was confirmed, Jiang Yu smiled helplessly: "As I thought, I have to thank you for asking you to run around for my sake."
Zhuang Donglai didn't expect Jiang Yu to be young, but she was very skilled in speaking and doing things. He said quickly: "Sister-in-law, if you say this, you will be too polite. Shenliu is my brother! His business is mine, including you..."
After thinking about it, Jiang Yu smiled and said, "So let’s just pretend that I don't know! When there is a chance in the future, I will return the money to him."
"That's right! This is his intention." Zhuang Donglai was relieved to hear Jiang Yu say this. He sighed in his heart that if he usually gave a house to a girl, the girl would be so happy that her double eyelids would drop down. This was the first time he heard that it was so difficult to give away a house! In other words, why didn't he meet this kind of woman ever?
Jiang Yu hung up the phone, but Zhuang Donglai’s thoughts couldn't help drifting away.
Gu Shenliu must have known her temper and that she would not accept his house, so he did this. Thinking of him telling Zhuang Donglai to disguise himself as a real estate agent, change into ordinary clothes, and took out a car that Zhuang family’s housekeeper usually use to buy vegetables, Jiang Yu sighed with emotion and only felt warm in her heart.
In the past life, Jiang Yu had always been lonely. She never felt the slightest friendship from her relatives. At this time, for the first time, she truly felt that she was being loved, the feeling of being carefully cared for and properly belong.
The matter of Jiang Yu buying a house was indirectly transmitted to Mother Gu through Zhuang Donglai’s mouth. Mother Gu heard that her son had put so much effort into selling and giving the house away to win a girl’s favor. She hurriedly said to Gu Xinlu: "Lin Lu, look at your brother. He is usually silent, but he does things without any ambiguity."
"The third brother is too black belly!" Gu Linlu spread sauce on the bread and said while eating, "Don't praise him too much."
"Why? I think Shenliu has been doing well recently."
Gu Linlu snorted: "Come on! At this rate, how long will it take you to hug your grandson?"
When Gu's mother heard this, she snorted and realized: "Yes! If Shenliy chases a girl like this, how long will it take?!" After a pause: "Or let's invite Jiang Yu home for a meal and get in touch with each other?"
"Get in touch?" Gu Linlu frowned slightly, "What kind of touch would you get?"
Gu's mother said of course: "Look at that TV, don't people say that girls are most afraid of evil mother-in-law before they get married? Maybe it is because of this that Xiao Jiang dare not trust Shenliu, so I have to let her know that her me as a mother-in-law will be very open-minded. Also, we need to make her see that the rich and powerful are not all intriguing as she thinks, and a mother-in-law is not all TV drama kind that wishes to kill girls from ordinary backgrounds every day, fight against villains every day!"
In the end, Mother Gu concluded: "Speaking of which, the world is getting worse and worse. Now TV dramas always love to scare people!"
Gu Linlu didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Holding the bread, he said, "Little Q is playing football on the lawn. I'll go see him!"
"Hey, come back..." Mother Gu shouted; "Do you agree with my idea?"
After buying the house, Jiang Yu paid the money. Seeing that there were still nearly 10 million funds left in the card, she only felt that her speed of making money was too slow and she couldn't keep up with her spending. Her money always gone in minutes, not to mention, it would cost a lot of money to make <The Entertainment Circle of Chong Fei> into a high-level online drama. She was going to move, so Bei Xiaoxiao said that she would choose an auspicious day.
Jiang Yu had to follow what Bei Xiaoxiao said and move on the auspicious day next Saturday.
