A question from a reader: What is this Chinese word in the real-estate brochures?

June 6th, 2016 · 5 Comments

Dear readers, any answers to this question that just came in over my blog transom?

An advertisement from a realtor appeared in our mail today, with the usual pictures of houses just sold (prices ranging from over 8 million to 2.5 million). Some of the pictures have “just sold” or “new listing” printed on them, but others have a Chinese word–“anpan” (暗盘). I know some Chinese, but I am so curious what this term refers to! And why just print it in Chinese?
