Asian Buyers Dominate London Homes Market

'The share of deals increased to 59 percent in the six months through April from 48 percent a year earlier'


Quite some statistic!


p.s. Kinda like 'Over half of prime Manhattan is being bought by Mexicans' or something

And Singaporean are complaining that foreigners bought 16% of the homes that were sold in the 1st quarter this year. They should grumble! :cool:

I wish that they would start buy up a bunch in SE Texas. I have a few that I would let go at a "special price just for you".

Isn't that ironic. You should post the link in the Foreigners vs. Singaporean thread.
