“The Wenzhou ladies may be coming. Wenzhou people are feared in China both as fierce business competitors and real estate buyers. 30 years ago, they were among the first Chinese who set up private business shops. They calculated profit by fraction of a penny. For the past decade they have been known as bigshot condo buyers. They form teams of RE buyers, go from city to city in China, and bring up prices whereever they go. And for the first time ever, they are allowed to invest directly overseas. So the suit case for cash will not be needed anymore. And “I buy 3, husband buy 3 thing may not be evening news material anymore. The money they are allowed to invest oveaseas may not initially sent out of the country in the name of RE investment, eventually most of the money will find their way in some kind of real properties.”
