Chinese and real estate

Growing interest abroad

In the previous sections, it was possible to see how the Chinese and their relationship with real estate is still strong. Despite the Covid emergency, despite the dramatic international situation, despite the tensions with other nations, China has not lost its strength. And how can we say this with great and absolute certainty? Simply for one very important fact: the Chinese have increased their interest in the foreign real estate market.

It seems strange all this, and yet the main scholars of the sector do not leave wide interpretations. China will probably reconfirm itself as a great power in the years to come. Even in real estate.
But how did this result come about?
To find out, we decided to create a small but intuitive column. In order to understand in depth what has led, in such a critical period for the entire globe, China to rise stronger than before!

So, if you are ready, we can inaugurate our column today!

From disadvantage to advantage

As we said earlier, China was the first nation to be affected by the Coronavirus emergency. Although this may have initially caused a major setback to the entire economic and health system, it has subsequently ensured a faster and more effective recovery of the country. But how?
Families were able to return to normal sooner than the rest of the world. This is why, in any sector of society, it has been possible to analyse the international scenario. In doing so, the Chinese understood what the winning moves would be once the pandemic was over. And one of them was to invest abroad!

Chinese and real estate

The best areas

But what were the areas that attracted the most interest from Chinese investors?
Strange but true, in first place we identify the United States, followed by Canada and Australia. But that is not all. To attract potential Chinese portfolios, the following countries are also included in the ranking:

  • Estonia,
  • Romania
  • Morocco
  • Greece
  • Spain
  • Portugal

Among them, we deliberately did not include the United Kingdom. This is because London, as always, is the exception here too, because London, as we have already said under previous headings, is at the top of many other European capitals.

The possible brake

But this great enthusiasm for real estate on the part of the Chinese could be put in a considerable brake. For a long time, in fact, it will not be possible to travel beyond national borders. For this reason, many sales contracts will be postponed or frozen.

Obviously, there is no lack of government action by the main representatives of the nations, oriented to the elimination of restrictions as soon as possible. But until then, it seems that the Chinese will have to wait a little longer for the international real estate.
