What Chinese buyers want when house-hunting in the US

Mr. Liu's tale is an excellent illustration of what the homebuying experience looks like for overseas homebuyers
  • Chinese buyers have become the largest segment of foreign investors in the U.S. after having spent about $22 billion dollars last year on U.S. real estate.
  • In 2014, nearly 270,000 Chinese students came to the U.S. to study.
  • Liu's experience is similar to that of many Chinese homebuyers who are looking to educate their children in the U.S.

Mr. Liu is a business man living in Zhengzhou, which is the capital of a lesser-known province in the middle of China called Henan. After years of hard work, he has a successful career and a happy family with two lovely children. Is he all settled? No, he wants to move across the world to the U.S. and educate his children in a great school.
