Becoming a Super-Rich Foreign Real Estate Investor: Globalising Real Estate Data, Publications and Events

Part of the The Contemporary City book series (TCONTCI)

Abstract

This chapter investigates the global real estate industry, which is developing around the new wave of Asian foreign real estate investment in Anglo-sphere countries. The global real estate industry is up-scaling the local real estate practices of the twentieth century into the global sphere. These new transnational brokering agents promote foreign real estate as a place to park excess capital, a way to obtain educational security for children studying at foreign institutions, and as a way to ‘purchase citizenship’ through a new suite of foreign investment visa regimes. These brokering agents are coaching foreign investors into the ways of becoming a super-rich foreign real estate investor.
