    Hi,

    Given that many large businesses now are looking to China for big profits and growth – is their real estate market on the up also?

    Has anyone thought about investing in some property over there for renting out and capital growth?

    I think you have missed the boat by about 4 years! A friend of mine purchased a +ve cashflow unit is central Shanghai and it doubled in value within 2 years.

    Beijing seems to be booming also because of the olympics, but there are probably still smaller cities out there that may have some bargins.

    I know this is a property website…
    But I would have to say… you are probably better off investing in Australian companies that benefit from the growth of China.

    Here I recently did some research of China, Uranium and Australia … Here it is… please note it’s in bullet – point form… so a little broken.



    Some of my researched notes on:
    China, Australia and Uranium

    Over the last 10 years, China’s economy has doubled.
    It is now home to more than 1.3 billion people.
    China is Australia’s second biggest trade partner,
    They are a major buyer of commodities such as iron ore, coal and copper.

    China currently has nine nuclear power reactors in commercial operation,
    four under construction and a further ten under proposal.
    This would give a fivefold increase in nuclear capacity to 40 GWe (40 x 1000 MWe) by 2020.

    In May 2004 the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) applied to build eight (4 pairs of) large new reactors.
    In December 2006, 22 months after the bids were submitted and the first AP1000 units are expected to be operating in 2013.

    Siemens, Alstom and Mitsubishi are bidding to subcontract their services to these Chinese firms.
    Decisions will be made by mid 2007.
    China’s known uranium resources of 70,000 tU are theoretically sufficient to fill the requirements for the mainland nuclear program for the short-term, but in the long-term will look to Australia, Kazakhstan, Russia, Namibia and possibly Canada to fulfil their requirements.
    As electricity demand is growing very rapidly, mainland China is starting to
    rely very heavily on imported uranium to fuel it’s nuclear power program.
    It therefore comes as no suprise that CNNC is also keen to participate in exploration and mining abroad,
    and in 2006 they bought into a small Australian uranium prospect in the Northern Territory.
    It is also worth mentioning India (the world’s largest democracy) with over one billion citizens,
    expect to have a 20,000 MWe nuclear capacity on line by 2020 (currently at 3 GWe capacity)
    Both countries see nuclear power as an important ingredient of sustainable development.
    As Chinese companies look to globalise, secure vital resources and establish a presence in foreign markets, there is a very strong interest from them towards investing in Australia’s energy and minerals industries in particular.

    On 18th April 2005, Prime Minister John Howard and Premier Wen Jiabao of China agreed that Australia and China should commence negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement (FTA), concluding that a FTA would enhance output and employment in both countries – benefiting the Australian economy by an estimated A$24.4 billion over a ten year period.

    Australia owns approximately 24 – 30% of the world’s uranium
    which and is currently able to export 11,000 tonnes per year.

    Known Recoverable Resources* of Uranium
    tonnes U percentage of world
    Australia 1,074,000 30%
    Kazakhstan 622,000 17%
    Canada 439,000 12%
    South Africa 298,000 8%
    Namibia 213,000 6%
    Russian Fed. 158,000 4%
    Brazil 143,000 4%
    USA 102,000 3%
    Uzbekistan 93,000 3%
    World total 3,622,000

    Australia could eventually supply up to a third of the Chinese domestic uranium.
    It’s estimated the trade could be worth a quarter of a billion dollars annually to Australia.

    Australia’s uranium mines are (in order of size):

    1. Olympic Dam (SA) –
    Owned by BHP. They purchased the business in 2005 from Western Mining Corporation WMC
    http://www.energy.sa.gov.au/pages/conventional/resources_use/nuclear/uranium_mining.htm:sectID=20&tempID=1

    2. Ranger (NT) –
    Owned by Rio Tinto subsidiary Energy Resources Australaia (ERA)

    3. Beverley –
    Owned by US group Heathgate

    4. Honeymoon –
    Owned by Canadian-based Southern Cross Resources (28% of which is owned by Sedimentary Holdings)

    The World Nuclear Association has forecast that uranium demand could rise from about 65,000 tonnes in 2006 to 78,000 tonnes in 2015 and to 111,000 tonnes in 2030.
    Australia is poised to cash in on that growth, with BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam project in South Australia planning to at least triple annual production to 15,000 tonnes.

    The Northern Territory government has revealed it has received more than 80
    new mining exploration applications from several companies – mostly Chinese –
    since making new land available for exploration.
    Companies to watch:

    China National Nuclear Corp, Cameco, Paladin, Energy Resources of Australia (ERA) owned by RIO, BHP, etc etc…

    Spot price for “yellow cake” has doubled in the past year and looks like
    holding above $US70 and according to Resource Capital Research, the price could hit $US90 by mid-2008
    before hitting an extraordinary $US115 a pound by September 2008.

    John Butler and Peter Garrett are against uranium mining in Australia.



    Now I’m NOT saying…
    Invest in uranium… Some people would argue that you could get just as good returns investing in women’s fashion, media, technology, for example…

    For you property investors out there:
    Hot tip… Adelaide and Darwin…
    Darwin has already boomed a little… I’d go for Adelaide..
    You know they’re also doing the Adelaide Darwin railroad shortly ;)

    I’m just saying…
    Think global, Act Local.

    – Enter Discalimer… Invest at your own risk…

    What could be the investing risks associated with invsting in china?

    I know large companies are eager to invest there but they have more resources to protect their money than an indivdual investor.

    hi all
    I would like to explain one very simple answer to your question
    and its a question that most companies around the world and for that mater most companies wishing to invest in chian have asked and they don’t get a very good answer howdo you invest in china.
    and for me it very simple and will but it in a western view point
    you don’t, because if you do you will lose your money has many before you,
    you jv or join with a chinese investment group many companies have tried to crack the chinese market and have lost lots of money,you can’t crack a market unless you can understand it.I am investing in china but I am investing via equity( you cant steal equity or if anything its alot harder nor can you get paid under the table with equity either).
    china is not any form of a western country and to deal there you need to make sure that your investment is secure and this is very difficult to do I would like a section on investing in china because its a market that is very misunderstood but sorry I don’t have the time to keep contributing to it.
    I have a time line that requires my time.
    I will post here as we go but maybe a overseas section will be formed at some stage.
    hope you all well.

    hi salacious
    you can open an account with the bank of china here if need be and you can then open the account with the bank of china in most large cities, not sure why you need the account as I would not recommend direct investing in china. you can even use a link cirus card there.
    I have organised not only accounts but am currently organising direct equity lending with the bank of china from here in sydney if need be send me an email to [email protected] and will give you some good contacts if need be.
    investing in china is not for the faint hearted
    and is tread very carefully
    you are about to go swiming with sharks so make sure you can
    swim very well or swim near the ladder
    thatsmy advice
    I don’t go in the water and use equity to scoop up the money without getting wet.

    Investing in China is much easier than you would expect, and the potential, far from being a needle in the haystack, is absolutely everywhere. New government regulations actually encourage foreign investment and make the process less fraught with complexity than you would imagine. Besides, stringent regulations mean the developers must standardise the transaction contracts in a format that is reasonably straight forward.
    There has already been collosal gains in the flag ship cities of Beijing and Shanghai, followed closely by Shenzhen and Guanzhou- to such an extent that the government introduced cooling down measures. These measures have bought gains down to around 10% annually, and generally encourage investors to hold onto to their property for a five year period as response to rampant (and successful) speculation. There was a time when it was possible to by off the plans then flip the asset with a huge profit. Those days are now gone(although it does still happen with reasonable returns but the capital gains tax levied on properties sold within 5 years lessons the appeal), however it is still possible to double or triple your investment over 5 years, while receiving around 8% rental yield annually in the interim.
    The savy investor is now looking to so called "tier 2" cities (in essence these are the capital cities of provinces) such as Wuhan, Xi'an, Chongqing and Chengdu which all have strategic advantages and preferential government policy, and which is attracting vast foreign investment in both the commercial and residential spheres. Right now we are seeing 30% increases on real estate over 6 months while the government invests massively in infrastructure to address the imbalance of income disparity. For example in Xi'an, which will have its underground train network completed within 4 years, has recently connected a bullet train to surrounding cities, and which reduces travel time considerably, and in style- a leap of astonishing dimensions when one considers the creaking models it has replaced.

    Many are betting that inland cities will soon follow the Eastern hub cycle of significant gains before settling at a much higher level. Prime 110m2+properties can be picked up for around $NZ100k in cities all over inland China, and the risk is not substantial as I see it. One aspect which is particularly attractive is the duel purpose model encouraged by local governments, allowing developments to be used for both residential and commercial use, thereby not limiting potential tenants. The ability to choose great, central locations with managed facilities in cities with 8 million people and more (serious purchasing power) is excellent news for kiwi investors, indeed all investors with some nous. It also offers great chances for new investors looking for a break with the kiwi market becoming inaccessable to some. Taking a punt now on China will likely mean you are nicely positioned for an assault on the Kiwi market in 5 years time- break out of the shackles
    In fact I have been in China for 3 and a half years and have already bought two brand new properties in sweet locations which receive a rental yield of around 8% annually, while actual property values are increasing on a daily basis. Rental agreements are usually worked out over a 12 month period. One property in particular was picked up for less than NZ$800/m2, and has bounded forth admirably. We paid a further $6000 to rennovate the place from a concrete shell to spanking new mint condition. Had we pushed the boat out and spent $10,000 we would have had a palatial result. We are awaiting further surges as the subway, swimming pool, Gymnasium and cafe are completed, while the location is to die for. I intend to add a further 3 properties to my portfolio over the next several months in Tier 2 cities, and I seriously advise others to consider it.
    The key, as ever is to do your homework and/or have someone on the ground in China who knows what they are doing. In that regard I can highly recommend Sino-NZ Investment Group who specialize in the field.
    Yes it is my company as you may have gathered, our mission is simply to help people enjoy these substantial investment opportunities, an endeavour in which we have already had resounding success if feedback from our clients, and the sheer statistics are anything to go by.
    We have specialist Chinese realtors at our disposal and only deal with legitimate licensed developers. In addition we take care of translation of all documents through independant and authorised professionals, which are notarised and, as such, bound by Chinese law. You will have peace of mind at every phase of the operation. Investing in China does require a little patience and imagination, however for the brave, sharp increases can be relatively safely anticipated.

    There is also the issue of the Renminbi (Chinese currency) which has finally unpegged from the US$, and while still heavily regulated is making slow gains with the potential to lift sharply in the face of US pressure, or more likely when the timing is right for China to increase its value. No one is entirely sure when that will be. In my own assessment I believe it will continue plodding up for some years to come. Add to that the current high of the kiwi dollar and this issue alone could net a substantial windfall.

    The Chinese market is not to be feared, though obtaining the services of someone experienced and trustworthy to help you navigate through potential hazards, and avoid becoming a horror story is highly desirable. If you have any questions about China real estate I am happy to help. Drop me an email. Extensive, detailed information also available at our website

    Here are some of the latest commercial opportunities in Xi'an China. Xi'an is one of the up and coming cities that is helping to lead the charge of China's interior transformation.:
    Project 1.

    Construction Contents and Scale:

    -Located at 330 North Street, covering an area of 3,656 Mu, the project plans to build a complex building with 11 floors, which occupies an area of more than 22,000 square meters. So far, the planned construction in the prior periods has been finished (two floors underground and eight floors above ground). The building area has totaled 16,120 square meters and it will be heightened for 6,000 square meters later.
     
    Investment Estimate and Funding Source

    So far, there are two approaches to cooperation for the project:
    ? Whole Transfer
    Valuation by Xian Tongyi Real Estate Evaluation Co., Ltd. in December 2005, it amounts to RMB 79.82 million and it is transferred with a price of 70 million.
     
    ?Cooperation and Joint Venture:
    So far, the attributed capital of RMB 63 million for the project was self-collected. Now, an investment of 30 million is needed to complete the project on the principle of mutual benefits and risk reduction. The developer is willing to transfer profits by 36% in the proportion of the gross profit (net profit) to the investor. 

    Investment Benefit Analysis

    The two floors underground of this project were designed to be parking lot with a predicted loading lots of 100; the three floors above ground as commercial business occupancy with a market value of RMB 70 million; the forth and above floors as business department with a market research value of RMB 81.50 million. The market research value of the project amounts to RMB 81.50 million and the gross profit amounts to RMB 35 million (net profit) through the relevant experts’ evaluation and calculation. It takes about 7 months to realize profit and complete investment. 

    Project Implementation Status:

    the examination and approval procedures of the project’s layout are complete. Now, the two floors underground and the eight floors above ground are finished to construct. Contact us for more info…

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Project 2
    The developer has realized total construction area of 100,000m2 with RMB170 million total investments, RMB 40million profit and RMB 20million revenue. It contributes greatly to Xi’an City infrastructural development.

    Project Content:

    The project, Chinatown is located in middle section of West Street,1km away from the Bell Tower. It is adjacent to West Street in north and Sajinqiao Street in east. This project covers 50mu with total construction area of 110,000m2 and RMB 0.42billion total investment. This project is under construction. Some companies have already moved into it. Beijing Century, the first to the sixth floor of Building A, World Trade Center in Building D, Club of World Trade Center and Chinese Club in top floor of Building D, and Russian Restaurant in the fifth floor of Building D.

    In accordance with overall planning of Xi’an City government, all buildings along the West Street will be constructed as Tang style. The Viewing Walkway is located  about 20m from the beginning of the street with 8 floors. Two of eight floors are underground for parking lot and equipment room. The first underground floor is for commercial use. Enclosing style is utilized in this project planning, and the layout is divided into four parts. The lower floors are for shops. Middle and higher floors of Building A and B is for top grade office building, while, Building C and Building D are respectively for commercial housing and residence use. Two squares are designed. One is leisure square in front of Building A with an area of 2300m2 and the other is water-scene square covering 4000m2. They are echoing with each other at a distance and become a unique sight of West Street, thus improve the quality of this project.
    It is proposed by our City government that famous historical Xi’an City and abundant cultural resources should be utilized to promote the quality of culture, thus to drive the development of Xi’an economy. We should input as much as culture meaning in city planning and constructing to make tourists learn history and polished by Chinese culture.
    The Chinatown is just the project following the requirements proposed by government to systematically combine culture with commerce.
    This project is located in middle section of West Street. Meanwhile, it is adjacent to west axle of the City, Sa Jinqiao Street, which is extending North and South of Xi’an City. It is adjacent to streets in each direction. Favorable geographical position makes this project enjoy many advantages from the beginning.
    As the gradual development of various projects along the street, and the introduction of Parkson Retail Ltd., Beijing Wangfujing Department Store Co., Ltd. and Clothes City from Shanghai and Zhejiang will make Chinatown a rising large-scale business place. Its appreciation of real estate will rank the first place in Xi’an City. The Chinatown depends on the overall development of West Street and is also independent from its own special advantages. Its compound business programs will become a shinning business spot integrating sightseeing, tourism, and culture.

    There will be introduced some large-scale catering and entertainment companies to do business in the fifth and sixth floor of Building B and fourth floor (4,000m2 ) of Building D . The retail stores shall move into -1 floor. Contact us for more info…

    Project 5

    To develop Xi’an Nanometer Science Industrial Park. The planning area of the park is 1000mu, and the total investment is RMB 1.2 billion partly for setting up a scientific research office building and many standard workshops. We sincerely welcome Taiwan business people and Hi-tech companies both at home and abroad to develop here.

    Project Content:

    As the rapid development of China’s economy, the domestic market is expanding gradually. Xi’an is in the central city of China with railways and highways radiating in all directions, abundant scientific and research talents as well as skilled labor force. Therefore, it will be the first-choice place by those entrepreneurs who consider investing in the domestic market. Conforming to the historical trend, Xi’an Nanometer Science Industrial Park provides the companies with the standard industrial workshops to let companies put into production promptly, so that they can seek for more business opportunities.

They are echoing with each other at a distance and become a unique sight of West Street, thus improve the quality of this project.
    It is proposed by our City government that famous historical Xi’an City and abundant cultural resources should be utilized to promote the quality of culture, thus to drive the development of Xi’an economy. We should input as much as culture meaning in city planning and constructing to make tourists learn history and polished by Chinese culture.
    The Chinatown is just the project following the requirements proposed by government to systematically combine culture with commerce.

    As the gradual development of various projects along the street, and the introduction of Parkson Retail Ltd., Beijing Wangfujing Department Store Co., Ltd. and Clothes City from Shanghai and Zhejiang will make Chinatown a rising large-scale business place. Its appreciation of real estate will rank the first place in Xi’an City. The Chinatown depends on the overall development of West Street and is also independent from its own special advantages. Its compound business programs will become a shinning business spot integrating sightseeing, tourism, and culture.

    There will be introduced some large-scale catering and entertainment companies to do business in the fifth and sixth floor of Building B and fourth floor (4,000m2 ) of Building D . The retail stores shall move into -1 floor.

    While there are definately sharks in China, many  real estate "executives" are just asleep and therefore incompetent. What anyone needs who wishes to cash in on the enormous potential is someone on the ground with a proven record and sensible advice. I made a 600% increase on properties in NZ over 7 years, but now living in China I still feel the opportunities are greater here.

    Have patience, be smart and you will do great things. I am sure that is what Henry tells the AB's and I believe it. Look for the AB's thumping SA this weekend (22.6.07), and look for Tier 2 cities in China to belt other markets in realestate. I am not writing here to attract attention- I simply want to help people make gains that are disproportionate in this day age. Australia did well in defence the other day in Cape Town, but lost. If you want to be a winner, you don't avoid sharks- you eat them alive with a bit of salt'n'vinegar
    Go you good thing!
