In recent years, China has seen tremendous volatility in overseas property investment. In a country with a population of 1.3 billion, its GDP grew by about 7% over the same period of last year, and the market potential of overseas real estate investors in China is boundless.
Investors are aggressively buying in their minds in an attractive way of life, immigrant investment and educational opportunities.
Coupled with the depreciation and instability of the yuan and the local economy. As home prices are soaring in sky-high prices in China’s metropolitan areas, the wealth they invest overseas is becoming more and more attractive to the wealthy in China.
The United States is the most popular investment destination
The United States is currently China’s largest real estate investor and is currently the most popular choice for real estate investment in China and currently accounts for 29% of total U.S. real estate investment.
The east-west coast is often the most sought-after area and New York is currently at the top of the list. Not just wealthy people buy foreign property. Chinese companies are also starting to invest in overseas offices as a way to invest in the company.
In general, overseas investment returns are better than investing in China, so it is easy to understand why far-sighted companies are jumping out of investment opportunities.
In order to really start selling real estate to China, it is important to have a very thorough understanding of buyers buying habits. Gaining insight from what they are looking for across the various marketing platforms used throughout China can be very helpful in helping you be successful and successful in your conversion.

It also makes the Chinese market different from the rest of the world where other offline branches play a bigger role in China.
Your reputation may not extend to China
Large, reputable companies often show me that they do not need to sell themselves in China, they are world-renowned and investors come to them. In fact, this logic in China does not work. China’s commercial and online environment is actually very unique and is known as the “Great China Firewall.”
Digitization is the solution, but dominates on the Chinese Internet local platform. No Google, Baidu. No Facebook, but WeChat. China news sources such as Sohu and Fung Fung are the places where investors can browse information.

Therefore, building a good Chinese website is very important, so that potential investors can understand your company’s situation and the type of property you provide.
Writing written content about your property that can be accessed from various Chinese platforms is also recommended to help establish your visibility and credibility.
These should include backlinks to your website to increase website traffic and your rankings in search results.
Keep in mind that some overseas investors may not have the chance to see the property they are investing in. Therefore, it is crucial to provide a wide range of asset profiles with very concise details, so investors can better understand what they are getting.
Video is another great way to see what you’re providing and generate high-quality video from the properties of your video. Videos, images and your website should all be well translated into mobile form, and most Chinese use their mobile phone for all their web research. The above suggested content can be sent directly to investors via IM on WeChat account.
