According to survey data released last year from the international Chinese-language real estate portal Juwai, about half of Chinese buyers intend to buy international properties for their own use, 15 per cent are buying for family or friends, and about a quarter were for investment only, reported the Montreal Gazette (20 November 2019). “Canada is one of the best destinations for real estate investment because it is politically very stable, so they don’t feel they can lose money. When they invest overseas, the main reason is to diversify their investment portfolio. Here, they can send kids for a better education, and their money is guaranteed — kind of,” said a Montreal reals estate broker.
