Strong Economy Means Strong Property Market in India and China

Hartlepool, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 08, 2009 -- We have all heard people refer to the BRIC countries; it is an anagram of Brazil, Russia, India and China, lumped together recently because they were the emerging markets with the biggest potential for economic growth. Now, as the world continues to fall deeper into recession, only two of those countries are to see economic growth this year, and they are both in Asia.

China and India are both currently growing strongly, and are expected to post strong figures for the entire year; 6.5% and 4.5% respectively according to International Monetary fund forecasts. Such strong economic growth means that people are still buying property within India and China.

It is a shame that buying property in those two countries isn't easier for foreigners. In the case of India property, only non-resident Indian's can buy property. That is only people of Indian origin, be they Indians who have moved abroad, or their children/grandchildren can buy property in India. In China, foreigners can only buy property if they have lived or studied in the country for at least year beforehand.

But foreigners can still buy property in India and China, according to Les Calvert, director of overseas property portal Property, he said:

"For foreigners to buy property in India as an investment, they must form a company, and give a person of Indian origin a 49% share in the company. The Indian can then buy property in India on behalf of the company, the proceeds of sale on which then becomes company revenue, and the buyer is compensated accordingly. The same goes for China, unless you fancy living there for a year."

Property is currently advertising property for sale in India, and hopes to advertise property in China in the near future.
