Chinese buyers are the fastest-growing international property investors in the US, says on Inman (30 September 2015). Having facilitated US$52 billion of overseas residential property sales, Juwai reckons that figure should go up to US$220 billion by the end of the decade. “Chinese buyers are motivated by investment, education, second-home lifestyle, and immigration. Agents will do best when they take these motivations into account, and help buyers with the information they need,” said Juwai Co-CEO Andrew Taylor. To capitalise on this booming market, Juwai recently shook hands with three new partners: Long & Foster and New York Statewide Multiple Listing Service in the US, as well as Wailian Overseas Consulting Group, an immigration company based in Shanghai that specialises in the EB-5 investor visa programme of the US.
