    The Chinese owned homes and condos don't have 20 people in them, a lot of them are empty and creating a serious shortage in rental stock, which leads to higher rents. I've got a great credit rating and when it all goes tits up and prices plummet I'll buy a few places.
    Ditto!

    FYI ~ BC gov't cut-off only it's own provincially corrupt MP conduit,…the Hong Kong Chinese (so deftly) used to drop their anchor in BC.,…20+ years ago. A long hour late, and several trillion shillings short,...as usual,…eh?

    A HILARITY poll could be started, to determine which of the competing gov'ts,...between the AU, CND, FR, NZ, UK, US,...(since 1945)...have best earned the "Knuckle_Head's" place "winner" prizes......

    The 3% don't appear to be a large number.

    Perhaps because they've already bought the decent ones. Who knows?

    Many here on TD have "heard stories", which allegedly support your claim.

    However there have also been stories of everyone and his dog has been buying NZ land/property/citizenship.

    As it's the number 1 "bug out" destination of choice for the well heeled western billionaires. Southern hemisphere, lots of land for private airstrips, plenty of water, seafood and surprisingly friendly native women.



    Also a thriving "club" scene.

    For our North American friends to feel at home the locals have many "Line Dancing" venues.
