Chicago Real Estate Investments: Social Media Fueling Chinese Real Estate Purchases

Posted by Leila Zammatta on Monday, May 12th, 2014 at 7:17pm.

Current Windy City residents already know that Chicago is a wonderful place to live - but lately, the rest of the world is quickly discovering why residents love it, and therefore, they are moving here and investing in condos, townhomes, and other real estate. And for a good reason - downtown Chicago is home to some of the most amazing properties in the United States, if not the world!

Welcome to Chicago's Chinatown

The international community has also discovered the city's many exceptional real estate options. As the Chicago Tribune recently reported via Reuters, social media has become a major connection point between Chinese and other global investors and real estate agents in the United States. And Chicago has taken the top spot, according to Forbes. It has also been declared a rising star by another major study, as featured in CNBC.

And we quote - "For some Chinese investors, the first step to purchasing millions of dollars in property on the other side of the globe is a lot like ordering a new t-shirt online - search and click." However, before the final "click to buy" it is essential to do one's research on not only the property itself, but the real estate team that's listing it. International real estate purchases have many complexities that require an expert team to make sure everything is done properly, whether it is simply an investment or a place where you (or your children) plan to live for a time. In addition, if you want to rent out your Chicago condo when you're not using it, a high end real estate team can help you with that too.
