The number of Chinese buyers is expected to rise during this Chinese New Year, reports South China Morning Post (5 February 2021). Property developers in countries such as Australia, Canada, Malaysia and Thailand are preparing their listings for buyers to secure a second home or add new properties to their portfolio during the holidays and in the comfort of their homes. Kashif Ansari, CEO of Juwai IQI, said: "Pandemic restrictions prohibit overseas travel this year, but this doesn't mean there is no interest. In fact, I believe Chinese buyers may actually be incentivised more than ever."
