I read this little article in realtor mag.org and I wanted to share it with you.  If Detroit signals any kind of trend of what Chinese buyers are looking for then these next 13 areas of the US are ripe for advertising to the Chinese. 

Please follow these link below to an article on how Chinese bought up Detroit when it was discounted.


Some highlights from the article above:

“While the bankruptcy is viewed as a bad thing elsewhere, it raised the exposure level of Detroit’s real estate market in China,”says Evonne Xu”

“Chinese shoppers can’t resist a bargain.”

“Moreover, Chinese purchasers are making bulk purchases of “inexpensive properties”—those selling for $25,000 or less—in the rings surrounding the city center.”

If there are any real estate agents or brokers that have properties in the 13 cities listed below I would recommend investing in Jinti’s digital market services to advertise your listings.  If the cities below are anything like Detroit I think there is a great opportunity here.
