Finding a property that you can call home when you emigrate is a fundamental part of your settling in experience. It can provide stability and a sense of belonging.

Australia

A recent report by Credit Suisse suggest that nearly 20% of new properties in Sydney,  and 14% of new properties in Melbourne, are being bought by wealthy Chinese. However, it also states that the rise in domestic house prices (to some of the highest levels in the world) is, whilst not attributable to foreign demand but rather due to low interest rates, increased affordability and domestic investors, a cause of concern for the government.

At the same time, economists have been warning for several years that the Australian ‘housing bubble’ may be about to burst.
