Japan real estate is benefiting from the US-China trade wars and foreign buyer taxes in Canada and Australia, reports Yahoo News (7 June 2019). The number of enquiries for Japanese properties in Q1 2019 were ten times larger than a year ago. “Some Chinese buyers are holding back from residential real estate in the US because of the trade war,” said Carrie Law, chief executive of Juwai.com, a top Chinese property website. “Events in the trade war have been unpredictable. They worry that after buying US property, they might later have problems with their visa or other issues that make it hard for them to keep that property,” she added.
