With the fast-growing China market being such a lucrative market to large to ignore, RE/MAX has most recently signed a deal with Juwai.com, reports the Sunday Star Times (16 February 2014). After L.J. Hooker, RE/MAX is the second major Australasian real estate agency to shake hands on a deal with Juwai.com. This deal will be of much benefit to RE/MAX clients, as all properties listed with RE/MAX throughout New Zealand and Australia will be automatically promoted to potential Chinese buyers on Juwai.com – the largest property portal in the world for Chinese investors seeking properties abroad. According to Michael Davoren, managing director of RE/MAX Australia and New Zealand, Chinese buyers rake in the biggest number of sales from any international buyer group on RE/MAX. Based on Juwai.com data, Australia and New Zealand are both favourite destinations for Chinese homebuyers, thanks to their relative proximity to China, good education opportunities, protected natural environment, as well as stable real estate markets and economy. While Chinese buyers favoured Auckland as the top destination in New Zealand, places like Kerikeri, Dunedin, Taupo and Northland came in as popular hot spots too. This story appeared in print only.
