What are our Chinese buyers looking for?

This is a question we are most asked when marketing properties through our China Desk

Some Chinese investors or buyers may have more than one purpose for buying property in the UK, but we have classified majority of Chinese buyers into 3 categories

China Desk Section

For Investment

Most common of all enquires through our China Desk relate to buyers looking to purchase UK property for investment.

Our investment clients will focus on Return on Investment, including rental yields and most importantly capital growth. Being resident thousands of miles from their UK property, majority of our Chinese investors will look to purchase property which offer a hands off approach to investment, with rental guarantee becoming a significant factor in the decision process

Investors may also be looking for purchasing for educational purposes in the near or distant future.

For Education

A large number of our enquiries are also for Chinese buyers looking to purchase UK property for educational purposes.

There are more first year Chinese students going to UK universities than from the whole of the EU, so UK property within convenient access to Universities has become a high demand for Chinese buyers.

Our Chinese buyers’ main priority is a safe and secure area when looking to purchase UK property for educational purposes, followed by convenience to amenities and locality to the University or School

For Relocation

A growing number of Chinese buyers are looking for UK property for relocation from China, Hong Kong or the Far East or as a second home.

Our Chinese buyers’ main priority is a safe and secure area, together with good transport access and areas with a large number of job opportunities, good schools, both state educated and private.
