Chinese developers and property buyers are still seeking investment opportunities in Australia despite new capital restrictions, albeit with a different approach, reports the Australian Financial Review (19 April 2017). According to a survey from, China's leading online property portal, merely 25 percent of Chinese buyers consider money transfers as their biggest challenge when investing abroad. Rather, they are more concerned with finding out how to navigate legal systems overseas, as well as property selection. This corroborates another report from JLL stating that Australia can still count on an "increasing buyer pool of high-income Chinese investors"
