The National Association of REALTORS® said in a new report that Chinese are now the top foreign buyers of domestic properties. Asian buyers accounted for 35% of all international purchases of U.S. real estate for the 12-month period ending in March 2015, spending more than $28 billion. Chinese buyers have been particularly active in high-end markets, such as New York City, the Bay Area and Southern California.

Once again, Coldwell Banker is right where it needs to be. Not only does it have hundreds of offices in Asian countries, making it a familiar, trusted real estate brand, it has a tremendous network of Asian real estate specialists in the U.S., as well as vast resources, both of which help overseas Asian buyers with their real estate needs.

That knowledge, strength and skill will be on display at this year’s Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) national convention being held in San Francisco on October 22-24—for which Coldwell Banker is a major sponsor.
