Chinese Market Potential for Your New York City Real Estate

New York City remains one of the top five destinations for Chinese real estate buyers. Chinese' appetite for US properties continues to grow despite capital controls introduced by the Chinese government in 2016. In 2017, Chinese bought a record high of US$31.7 billion worth of real estate, up from US$27.3 billion in 2016. Between April 2016 and March 2017, China ranks no. 1 in terms of dollar sales for the 4th straight year. Chinese buyers also bought the most housing units (40,572) for the 3rd consecutive year. To give a glimpse of the opportunities that the Chinese market presents, according to the Boston Consulting Group and China Industrial Bank reports in 2016, there will be:

100 million upper-middle-class Chinese;

280 million affluent Chinese; and

3.88 million high-net-worth Chinese by 2020.

Any one of them could be the buyer of your New York City real estate. Why limit your buyer base within the U.S.?
