New Wealth Builders
Recent studies1 have shown that 69 million mass wealthy Chinese have the net worth to buy U.S. properties. That figure is expected to rise to 220 million by 2022. Exactly who are these buyers?
Karen Yan, Executive Vice President of JinList.com, explained they are called New Wealth Builders (or NWB’s for short). NWBs typically do not consider themselves wealthy, and their wealth is earned, not inherited. They are the world’s fastest growing wealth segment, and have net worth of between $100,000 and $1,000,000 USD2. In 2014, Chinese NWB’s held assets totaling 19.5 Trillion dollars. In comparison the U.S. NWB’s had assets totaling 23 Trillion dollars. By 2022, Chinese NWB’s are projected to have over 53 Trillion in assets versus 27 Trillion for their U.S. counterparts. However, the U.S NWB’s will have a higher per capita basis $491,000 than Chinese NWB’s $319,000.
NWBs represent an increasingly important phenomenon in the world economy, driving growth in savings and economic activity more generally.
Like high net worth Chinese buyers, these NWB’s are also looking for asset protection/appreciation and revenue streams. They are more likely to be looking at secondary cities for more economical values. Education is still a priority and purchasing real estate near accredited universities is also a key desire for these buyers.
These NWB’s are younger and much more internet savvy. Almost all of their investment and purchase decisions are made using online sources.
Chinese buyers usually take 6 months from the time they start researching to the time of seeing the properties and making purchase decisions. They can only include properties they can find in their searches. They prefer sites hosted and accessible in China, readable in Chinese for convenience and ease of use. If you and your properties can’t be found, you have little chance of selling to these buyers.
