China has increasingly become a main bidder in the overseas' real estate sector in recent years. Industry insiders believe that the reasons behind the craze by Chinese buyers are resisting the inflation and RMB appreciation, as well as finding better education for their children.
 
The number of Chinese emigrants had risen to 9.34 million by the end of 2013, with the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand being the top four destinations, said a report on Chinese international migration in 2014 published by the Center for China and Globalization, a Beijing-based think tank.
 
Top 5 UK
 
Chinese investment in British real estate has increased remarkably and will continue in the coming years, industry insiders say.
 
Research shows that Chinese investment in London real estate rose from 54 million pounds in 2010 to more than 1 billion pounds at the end of the third quarter of 2013.
 
This increase means Chinese investment in London real estate now accounts for more than half of the total figure for Chinese investment in the rest of Europe, which stood at 1.9 billion pounds last year. While the research does not reveal how much was invested by Chinese companies. Real estate records show that they made many important deals last year.

About 469 properties that cost more than 10 million yuan per unit were sold to Chinese buyers in Singapore.
