A report by Chinese property search portal Juwai.com says Chinese outbound real estate investment could drop by 20% this year, report Forbes (31 July 2017). This projected slowdown is due to tightened financial controls by the Chinese government to regulate the outflow of capital from the country. Nevertheless, Chinese investor interest in overseas property remain strong, especially as Chinese real estate investment in international and US property charted record highs last year in 2016, as well as the fact that Chinese investors are also underinvested overseas on a whole. “While we think the dollar amount is likely to decline somewhat this year, investment levels are still in the foothills of this mountain range. There are higher peaks ahead,” said Sue Jong, Chief of Operations for Juwai.com.
