China Property Market, Among World's Hottest Properties

May 6, 2008
The Chinese real estate sector is increasingly becoming highly sought after with international property investors who are looking for maximum diversification within their portfolios because the real estate market in China generate interest in local and international investors and interest covers both the commercial and residential real estate sectors. This implies that there is a huge opportunity to make profits, income and gains from Chinese real estate which is the reason why it is extremely popular with investors.

For example consider the Beijing's property market. It witnessed development in each sector in the fourth quarter. There was an improvement of 2.8% points to 14.1% in the vacancy rate and there was a rise of 460.000 sm to the existing stock due huge completion of prime office projects. Rents were increased by 3.8% q-o-q, arriving at RMB 193.1 psm per month. The apartment market in Beijing profited most from the forthcoming Beijing Olympics considering the residential leasing market sectors. There was an increase of 5.6% q-o-q to RMB 228.5 psm per month for service apartment rents. Luxury apartment and villa rents got incremented as well. The huge asking of the Olympic Games resulted in the addition of 1.2% q-o-q in rents for ground floor retail space and 3.4% q-o-q in rents for first floor retail price.

The Chinese government is also committed to woo foreign investment into their country and started easing many constraints to smooth the path for those looking to buy property in China back in 1998. Their efforts to lift their economy via the encouragement of foreign direct investment met with grand success and lead to the government getting concerned that speculators would render the property market unstable. Because of this the Chinese government has now made it tougher for investors to achieve short term gains from the property market. As a result of this fact the market now triggers less interest with those real estate investors aiming for short term gains and more attractive with those searching for a reliable market with extensive potential for demand and flourishing over the medium to long term.

Considering foreigners' rights regarding ownership of real estate in China, all overseas buyers are protected by Chinese law but actual real estate law and the property buying process in China are fresh concepts that are comparatively young and naive. This implies that investors looking to purchase property directly in China are required to access the services of a recognized lawyer to receive the necessary help to deal with the complexities of the real estate purchase process.

For those who are looking to achieve the pinnacle in terms of the gains available in Chinese property but who are also looking to remain relatively free from any investment made, there are unlimited property investment funds focusing in Chinese real estate now available. Such funds launched by larger, recognized financial institutions are becoming increasingly favored by both local and international investors. Such real estate investment funds enable an investor to benefit from the potential of the property market in China without requiring to invest significant sums of money directly to the market. Furthermore, by investing like this an investor's underlying money is far easier to get hold of than if it were utilized to directly purchase real estate in China.

No matter whichever way an investor wishes to deal with investing in the real estate sector in China one thing is for certain - never has the Chinese property market generated such huge interest with so many international real estate investors. You may not get too many better opportunities than this, so garb this opportunity as soon as possible.
