More than ever, Seattle and even distant suburbs are being considered by many Chinese as a place to buy a home and even relocate for permanent residency.

As a directory for finding a home, caters to many Chinese home buyers and can help take the guess work out of where to buy

The Pacific Northwest and it's natural beauty has been a draw for many Chinese over the decades. Going into 2018 that trend is continuing. With the Seattle job market in tech offering exciting career paths, Seattle is an exciting place to live and is drawing new comers from China every year.

Chinese Millionaires Are Purchasing Seattle Real Estate

Not only are Chinese millionaires buying up Seattle homes, but several are doing this as a real estate investment, recognizing the long term potential the Seattle housing market has for gaining home equity. We list thousands of homes across Seattle and the Greater Puget Sound, many with spectacular views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and others with views of Mount Rainier.

The Seattle suburbs are surrounded by family friendly communities and the Seattle area has long been a welcoming city to Chinese newcomers.

What Seattle Suburbs Are Attracting Chinese Home Buyers?

Many popular and affluent areas in Seattle and the suburbs that are attracting Chinese home buyers include Richmond Beach, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah, Woodinville, Mercer Island, Sammamish, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Fall City, Carnation, Duvall, Renton, and Maple Valley.

What is it About Seattle that Attracts Chinese?

While there has long been interest in Vancouver, Canada from Chinese home buyers and investors, a new international tax in Canada has prompted many Chinese home buyers to take interest in Seattle instead. This has added to the higher prices Seattle continues to see each year, which is great for home sellers yet creates a problem for many middle class home buyers who are getting priced out of the Seattle market.

The list of Seattle suburbs above such as Bellevue and Kirkland are also seeing higher priced homes, leading many middle class home buyers to look at Snohomish County as a place to still buy a home while it's affordable, and at the same time offers a quieter lifestyle than the busy and heavy traffic area of Seattle. Many of these properties offer homes on 2 or more acres and may include majestic views of the Puget Sound and mountains and many other properties are waterfront, whether that's lake, river, or even Puget Sound.

Are You a Chinese Real Estate Investor? You'll Like These Properties in the San Juan Islands

The San Juan Islands boast more than 30% more sunshine annually than Seattle and its suburbs. The increased amount of sunshine is due to the "Olympic Rain Shadow", which is a weather anomaly created by the Olympic Mountains to the southwest of the San Juan Islands.

View homes in: San Juan Island, Orcas Island, and Lopez Island. Though not a part of the San Juan Islands, just a few miles to the south you'll find a few spectacular homes and properties for sale on Whidbey Island and Camano Island.

The San Juan Islands offer close proximity to Vancouver, Canada where as a U.S. citizen you can freely visit anytime without a passport. If you're still a Chinese citizen you will need your passport but are welcome to visit Vancouver and everything this exciting city has to offer.
