Where are Chinese looking globally?

Chinese are buying properties abroad like there’s no tomorrow –
investing over US$80 billion on international property last year alone.1

In fact, Chinese outbound real estate investment is slated to grow as much as 50% this year2, and this is following record-breaking property shopping sprees by Chinese throughout the world.

This shows that Chinese overseas property investment is nowhere close to tapering of anytime soon. What’s more, Juwai research indicates that what we’ve seen so far is but the tip of the iceberg.

Where are Chinese buyers looking to invest, though? We shed light on the top 10 countries most enquired by Chinese property investors on Juwai.com in the adjacent map.

Interestingly, each Chinese buyer is diferent, and while many share similar yet somewhat distinct aspects, where they hail from influences their motivations and dictates their buying preferences as well.
