Chinese are the top foreign buyers of US homes, reports CityLab (31 July 2017). According to a recent NAR report, real estate investors from China spent $31.7 billion on American residential property in 2016. In terms of location, Juwai.com COO Sue Jong reveals that Chinese buyers are 'not giving up' on Chinese favourites, such as L.A., Seattle, or New York City. All three cities, along with Houston and Orlando – both of which have long seen growing demand from Asian buyers – are among the top five most-searched hotspots in the US by Juwai users. “In fact, the top five cities received a slightly larger share of all inquiries so far in 2017 than in 2016,” added Jong.
