Sell for More News: Chinese investment in US commercial real estate fell off a cliff

Published on January 18th, 2019

Sell for More News is a weekly blog series with interesting information from the world of commercial real estate.


If you needed another reason to expect a cooling commercial real estate market in 2019, here it is. In 2018, Chinese foreign direct investment into the U.S. fell to just $4.8 billion — a massive decline from $29 billion in 2017 and $46 billion in 2016.

The 2018 figure marks a 90 percent drop from 2016 and represents the lowest level of direct investment by China since 2011.

The decline comes amid trade tensions between the U.S. and China and as Beijing adds pressure on Chinese companies to reduce their global holdings and reduce debt levels.

We’ve entered a transitioning market folks.  If you’re a seller in 2019,  it’s important that you start the marketing process with this perspective.
