Tencent – China's largest internet and social media giant – and Juwai.com have partnered up to launch a new global real estate website for Chinese web users, reports the Australian Financial Review (5 January 2017). The new site, hosted on Tencent's powerful social media application QQ, is an international property channel that will display Juwai.com's 2.5 million international listings. "By increasing the number of people who view Australian and other international property online, we are likely to see an increase in buyer inquiries and ultimately transactions," said Charles Pittar, CEO of Juwai.com. Tencent Real Estate General Manager Yu Kai adds, "The goal here is to further empower Chinese buyers and to assist international property marketers. We hope that will lead to more transactions, too. This partnership with Juwai.com will provide our users with information on overseas buying, listings, and related services."
