Many elderly people were unwilling to move. They knew the apartments had better facilities and environment. But being poor, even if they had mortgage they could only afford property in the remote outskirts. They have been living in longtang for decades and were used to it. Though the living conditions were not so agreeable, it was downtown after all. The old people could not pay off mortgage and were afraid of debt.
