Luxury Victoria Homes Presented in China

Chinese Investors - Immigrants Buying High-End Victoria, BC Real Estate November 17, 2010

Canada boasts a solid financial system, political stability, an excellent educational system, a good social welfare net, and a welcoming immigration policy. And all these things are attracting foreign investors and immigrants, especially from mainland China, who are buying homes, but not just any homes. They are looking at high-end Victoria, BC, real estate.

Earlier it was investors and buyers from Taiwan and Hong Kong coming into the Vancouver area. Now, it is investors and buyers from mainland China, in even greater numbers, seeking to purchase Vancouver and Victoria, BC real estate. These investors/immigrants view Canada as good place to store their wealth and this area in particular as a good place for their children to get a western education. An added bonus is that it is not all that far from their Asian businesses.

The attractions of Victoria in particular are the mild climate and breathtaking scenery, the cultural diversity and educational opportunities, and the array of entertainment and architecture. The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria is a bustling cosmopolitan city that is home to North America’s second-oldest Chinatown. And now Victoria is drawing wealthy Chinese luxury home buyers.

There is, then, an opportunity here for sellers in the high-end Victoria, BC, real estate market. The trick, though, is in knowing just how to market to this new wave of luxury home buyers, and this is where I can be a huge help. I have direct access to investors from China through my exclusive agency agreement from PacWest International Management with 20 years in the China market.

Next presentation of my Victoria Homes in China;  January 15 – February 15, 2011 – Shanghai and Beijing.

  The time is ripe for selling luxury homes to these buyers, but traditional marketing methods may not be enough.  I have a solid online presence and an effective Internet marketing system.  Please call me if you are considering selling your luxury home in the Victoria Oak Bay areas.
