Chinese buyers driving growth: CEO

By Michael Masterman

Overseas buyers are set to drive the residential property market up in 2014, according to Vow Financial chief executive officer Tim Brown.

Mr Brown said overseas borrowers are driving growth in several specific areas.

“The new [Significant Investor Visa] requirements mean if you have $5 million in cash you can basically buy yourself an Australian citizenship,” he said.

“In some of the Chinese areas like Chatswood, EastwoodEastwood, SA Eastwood, NSW, Hurstville and BurwoodBurwood, NSW Burwood, VIC in Sydney, we are seeing a lot of Chinese buyers entering the market.”

Mr Brown also said he expects select cities to drive substantial national growth in the next year.

“I think in Sydney, Brisbane, PerthPerth, TAS Perth, WA and Darwin there is an undersupply of housing to meet the population growth in those capital cities,” he said.

"We are also seeing an improvement in confidence and lower rates.”

Mr Brown put this confidence down to the change in government: “I think most people are now fairly confident that the decision making process in government will stabilise,” he claimed.
