‘Revenge Buying’ Makes Chinese Buyers Number 1 for International Property Investment

Apart from surges in buyers due to revenge buying or other big events in China, such as Golden Week, Chinese investors regularly top the list of overseas property buyers.

A report from EY states that the number of high-income households in China that can afford to buy international real estate is set to increase by 50% by 2025.

This growth in Chinese international real estate investment is caused by several factors. This includes the increased income of China’s rapidly growing middle class. Another factor is historically high rates of savings among Chinese consumers. 

There’s also a trend towards portfolio diversification among Chinese investors, and many are turning to international real estate. Lastly, lifestyle changes have played a big part, with many Chinese investors looking for a second home or seeing international investment as a viable way to generate returns when they weren’t able to consider it previously.

According to Juwai IQI, UK property is a popular choice in 2023 for Chinese investors. This is down to the variety of investment opportunities available, such as residential, commercial, industrial, and serviced accommodation investment.
