One of Taylors core values “consistently exceeding the expectations of our clients by fostering meaningful, lasting relationships” was taken to the next level recently by attending a major property summit in China.
The summit looked at world trends and outlooks for commercial and residential property markets in 2017 while addressing the importance that Chinese investors place on customer service, trust and relationships. These are key qualities they look for in their consultants to enable them to navigate the hurdles involved with investment into international markets.
Chinese investors spend an estimated US$52 billion in the international property market each year with this figure expected to increase over the next 5-10 years. Of particular importance in shaping the investment decision for the Chinese consumer is:
- Education quality and accessibility
- Immigration policy
- Investment Outlook
- Lifestyle/travel benefits
Over 163 cities in China have over 1 million in population and with only 50% of the population having access to the internet there is still considerable scope for growth across the property investment sector. The internet plays a major role, but there is clearly no substitute to building relationships face to face.
