Breaking Ground: Chinese Investment in U.S. Real Estate




It is one of the most profound consequences of China’s growing wealth: Chinese investment in U.S. real estate has exploded, particularly in California and New York. Chinese nationals are now the biggest foreign buyers of American homes, purchasing at least $93 billion worth of home in the past five years, including $28.6 billion in 2015 alone. Commercial property purchases have surged as well, to $8.5 billion last year, a 15-fold increase from 2010. And, at nearly $208 billion, China is the biggest foreign holder of U.S.-government-backed residential mortgage bonds.

Asia Society and the Rosen Consulting Group are pleased to launch a study that provides an authoritative, comprehensive, and one-of-a-kind accounting of Chinese investment in the U.S. real estate market. Join us for a special program on the study and its implications; speakers will discuss the report and provide context for the broader debate, too often ideological and acrimonious, over U.S.-China trade and investment.
