Condominiums are hot in demand in Seattle, reports Cision PRWeb (27 February 2018). 95% of 203 units of KODA Condominium – a new condo development in downtown Seattle – were snapped up with downpayments paid within hours of its launch, which saw prospective buyers queing up the night before for its 11am launch. While KODA Confominium saw an overwhelming response from local buyers, who make the majority of buyers, the developers of KODA were very satisfied with the response from foreign buyers as well. According to Juwai.com, a leading international home search website in China with more than 2 million monthly users, mainland Chinese are the top international homebuyers in the US, and Seattle is their third most sought-after US cities in 2017, just behind second-placed New York City and top hotspot Los Angeles. "Seattle punches above its weight in terms of Chinese buyer demand,” says Carrie Law, CEO of Juwai.com. “The city attracts more Chinese buyers than you would expect for its size. A typical seller in Seattle is twice as likely to have Chinese buyer interest than one in greater LA or New York."
