cmoneyspinner Foregien investors have been buying real-estate here in america for a long time now. I do believe that China is the biggest investor here. The powers to be don't care because they are making billions of dollars.

Foreign investors have been buying up American property and businesses for years and it is disconcerting. But what can be done about it? Pass a law banning such sales to non-American citizens? As for Californians buying property in Texas, that kind of thing has gone on for decades. Folks from New York buying property in Arizona and Florida etc.

Never hear that kind of news over here. We hear about corrupt Chinese officials but the reports are never really tied to the real estate market. Thanks for commenting.
