"Juwai data showed that, while Macau is a very small market, Chinese buyer interest was higher overall in 2018 than during 2017. In October, mainland Chinese residential property buyers made more than twice as many buying enquiries as in the same month in 2017," Carrie Law told the Macau News Agency, reports (15 December 2018).
