Five years ago, according to Knight Frank’s Global Head of Research Liam Bailey, Chinese buyers were nowhere to be found in Miami. Today, it’s a different story, according to reporting by the Miami Herald’s Rebecca San Juan.

The Chinese now make up 4% of Miami’s foreign buyer pool along with Latin Americans, Europeans and Canadians, according to the most recent data published in 2018 by the National Association of REALTORS®. And this foreign buyer pool is increasing sales in Miami.

According to the president and CEO of Miami-based luxury brokerage firm One World Properties, Peggy Olin, “The Chinese are looking for a place to put their money and rent.” One World Properties are has offices in Beijing and Shanghai and is in the process of opening another in Shenzhen.

Olin currently sells 20% of available units in Miami’s new developments to wealthy Chinese nationals. “They often buy two or three condo units, each priced under $1M, in buildings that are likely to increase in appreciation and, at the least, generate a small return.”

With Chinese participation in Miami’s lux market now standing firm, Knight Frank’s Liam Bailey said, “The luxury residential market in Miami is now showing the beginnings of an improved market.”
