Asian foreign investors are still eyeing property in Queensland although the coronavirus outbreak may delay transactions, according to a news report in Realestate (19 March 2020). Prior to the outbreak, Juwai IQI, a Chinese global proptech group, forecast that Chinese buyer demand for Australian property would continue to grow. Juwai IQI executive chairman Georg Chmiel said in 2019 Chinese buyers made 8.9 per cent more inquiries about Australian property than the previous year. "It is impossible to know what will happen with the market over the coming months. Yet this much is certain, if Chinese buyers can buy, they will. They like Australia. They like Brisbane. They want to invest here and to live here," said Chmiel who also advises those who intend to sell their homes right now to do as much online marketing as possible as online tools won't be affected by travel bans or quarantines.
