Why Chinese Rich People want to invest Overseas, and Why in Property?
Chinese Investors Are Searching to Invest More in Overseas Real Estate
There is a rising affluent class in China who are making a choice that buys a property overseas. For someone, their savings are not sufficient for buying China’s astronomically expensive properties in major cities such as Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou. Meanwhile, keeping the money sitting in a bank account is also a bad deal. So a lot opt for Europe, United States of America or Emirates.
A long-term investments
More and more of these potential buyers are looking at buying properties for their children sent abroad for education. Not only is it more convenient and safer for their offspring, but it is also an excellent investment once the children finish their studies and the property can be rented out or sold. Most such investors eye the market in Britain, Germany, and France, where the majority of Chinese students in Europe are concentrated, and where the investment conditions and property safety factors are high.
United Kingdom is the choice in Europe
The UK is the primary European destination for Chinese overseas property seekers. Luo Xuesin, the CEO of Juwai.com, the major Chinese online broker for overseas buyers, told Economic Observer that inquiries into Britain’s properties are far greater than those of Germany and France put together. Though the motive for buying is often education related, investment-oriented purchases of buy-to-rent properties surpass purchases for self-occupation in Britain and are the highest among the three European countries.
Brexit did cause potential Chinese buyers to hesitate for a while. But since the beginning of 2018, the market has picked up again. According to Ms. Luo, the peak of Chinese buyers flocking to Britain was between the end of 2016 and the first half of 2017. This year, the trend is rising once again

Chinese loves Dubai
From 2002 to 2008, about 7013 investors and buyers, coming from China, made 9640 transactions in the real estate sector, for a value that amounts to well US $ 3.9 billion, as it is issued by Suhaib Shaikh, a local salesman in the industry.
This great interest in the real estate world, in the most famous capital of the United Arab Emirates, derives greatly from two factors. The first comes from the big Chinese project One Belt One Road initiatives, in which Dubai plays an important role. While, the second factor, is the merit of the Arabs who have overcome the competition, through the offer of preferential policies. In fact, by buying a villa in the Dubai area, you can get a 5-year residency visa.
Figures are growing
Chinese investors spent a total of US$39.5 billion on an overseas property last year – an increase of eight percent compared to 2017, according to Colliers International.
The Canada-based global real estate consultant said that China’s outbound property investment pattern has seen a notable shift, with investment in the US dropping by 64 percent year-on-year to US$5.9 billion, while procurement in Asia rose by 34 percent to US$12.5 billion.
China’s investment in European real estate soared by 336 percent to nearly US$19 billion in 2017, mainly due to the China Investment Corporation (CIC)’s takeover of Blackstone’s Logicor, a London-based warehouse property group, for US$14.4 billion. Without the deal, China’s property investment in Europe would have remained stable.
Most Chinese enterprises preferred to invest in undeveloped land, on which they can build apartment blocks, office buildings, and industrial property.
