The impact of the Chinese overseas property market

June 2015

Thirty five million of China’s wealthiest people have stated that they would like to emigrate overseas in the near future and if and when they do, they are likely to bring with them substantial investment into local economies

Wealthy Chinese property investors are increasingly looking outside China in order to gain the most from their money. What began as a fairly small scale approach to overseas residential ownership has grown to become a highly significant proportion of both US and Australian property markets. Thirty five million of China’s wealthiest people have stated that they would like to emigrate overseas in the near future and if and when they do, they are likely to bring with them substantial investment into local economies: in 2014, Chinese investors spent US$22 billion on homes in the USA (Ambrose, 2015).
