LUXURY HOMES in the Pacific Northwest


T

he Seattle/Bellevue metro area is experiencing a meteoric rise in homebuyers and foreign direct investment from China. Discovered for its high quality of life, economic prosperity and relative affordability compared with other West Coast markets, The New York Times estimates 40-percent of $1 million-plus homes sold on the affluent Eastside are being purchased by Chinese buyers. The attractions are many. A depth of arts and culture, a pristine natural environment (including extraordinarily clean air and water), renowned schools, and an internationally diverse population – much of this promoted in the hit movie “Beijing Meets Seattle”, which has become a box office favorite in mainland China.

“Washington has no state income tax and the overall cost of living is much lower than either British Columbia or California,” adds Jones. “With the savings, you could greatly enhance your lifestyle by living in Seattle.” Foreign buyers aren’t the only contributors to a booming marketplace. The region is teeming with high-paying job openings. Companies like Amazon.com, which will soon occupy more than 5 million square feet of office space in downtown Seattle is a demonstration for the “urban campus”. The online retail giant is set to exceed 40,000 local employees downtown, eclipsing Microsoft’s Eastside headquarters. Other industries are expanding too, including aerospace, education, global health and life

西雅图尤其受到中国年轻学生的追捧。这 里的华盛顿大学在世界学术大学排名第15, 其中20%的新生是国际生, 国际生中一半是 中国生。 苏富比国际地产西雅图地区(Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty)的董事 迪安.琼斯(Dean Jones)说: 美国之梦在西 雅图更容易实现。有很多具有前瞻性的客户 选择西雅图, 因为他们意识到给孩子一个高 质量教育的重要性。他们为孩子选择享誉全 美的公立私立学校, 从而殊荣毕业, 然后 在体面的公司就职,并能容易地负担高级房

Seattle, Washington

The Investment Capital of the Pacific Northwest Shines 进入太平洋美西北的投资夺目闪耀

Asians are the fastest growing demographic in Washington and in some markets, like Bellevue they represent 30-percent of the population. Chinese grocery stores, fine dining, international schools and many Mandarin-speaking businesses have created a comfortable relocation experience for new immigrants. It also helps that Seattle now boasts numerous direct flights to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, which proves to be less expensive and up to two hours quicker than other international airport hubs in California. A preference for Seattle starts at a young age. The University of Washington, ranked #15 by the Academic Ranking of World Universities, says 20-percent of its freshman class is attending from international markets and half are from China. “Living the American Dream is more easily attained here in Seattle,” says Dean Jones, President & CEO of Seattle-based Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “Overseas clientele realize their children can relocate, graduate from the Seattle area’s premier public and private schools with honors, confidently secure employment and can afford to buy a home to build a family in a one of North America’s most beautiful and fastest growing regions.” Although rising quickly, Jones says homes are still considerably less expensive than Vancouver, BC, San Francisco or Los Angeles, and unique lifestyle opportunities like living on Lake Washington, really can’t be found elsewhere. He believes the trend with international home buying has only just begun, so there’s a much greater propensity for value appreciation ahead.

Anticipation for the housing demand can be seen throughout the metro area with scores of residential developments transforming the skyline. Other major projects include a $2 billion tunnel below the city and waterfront park project that will rival West Coast cities for both accessibility and beauty.

琼斯说, 虽然地产价格在逐步上升, 但比较 起温哥华, 旧金山, 洛杉矶, 西雅图的房价 仍然很合理。 更不要提这里的独特生活方 式, 比如生活在华盛顿湖边, 是独一无二的 生活经历, 在任何别的地方都享受不到的生 活。 琼斯认为中国在此的投资仅仅是个开 始, 所以该地区地产的升值势在必然。

“We’re seeing housing demand due to job growth, immigration and lifestyle preferences all at the same time - it’s having a compounding effect,” says Jones. “We’re witness to a world-class city on the rise.” 西雅图/贝尔维尤市区正在经历来自中国的 富裕购房者和直接投资的迅猛崛起。 大家 发现这里有着高质量的生活, 繁荣的经济, 和与西海岸其它城市相比更合理的地产价 格。 纽约时报最近估算, 在贝尔维尤所在 的富裕东区, 40%的百万美元以上价格的房 产由中国买家购买。 西雅图的诸多诱惑力有: 居民的深度艺术文 化修养, 完美洁净的天然环境(空气和水), 闻 名的学校教育, 和国际化的人口----流行电 影“北京遇见西雅图”用银屏向观众展示了 所有这些, 西雅图继而成为电影票房明星。 在华盛顿州, 亚洲人口增长非常迅速。在 贝尔维尤, 亚洲人口占30%。 中国副食店, 高级餐馆, 国际学校, 及很多讲普通话的 服务行业, 使得许多搬迁到贝尔维尤的新 移民感觉到生活非常容易和舒适。西雅图 现在拥有诸多直航飞机通往北 京, 上海,

华盛顿州没有州所得税, 比起加拿大的温哥 华地区和加利福尼亚州, 这里的生活成本要 低很多。所以居民在同等收入条件下, 享有 更高的生活质量。 西雅图地区地产市场的蓬勃发展不光取决于 国际买家, 该地区有很多高薪职位。亚马逊 公司(Amazon.com)在西雅图市区将占据超过 5百万平方英尺的办公空间。 这个网上零售 巨匠势将雇佣4万多名本地员工, 远远超过 微软大东区总部的规模。 其它行业也在扩 展: 航空航天, 教育, 环球卫生及生命科学; 慈善事业(西雅图是比尔.盖茨--梅林达.盖 茨基金会的家园)。 未来住房的增长是必然趋势, 西雅图地区开 发项目随处可见, 市区面目日新月异。 其 它项目包括20亿美元的隧道工程和海滨公园 建设。这些设施将使西雅图地区的环境更加 优美,人们的生活更加便捷。 琼斯说: 本地区地产的需求是由于就业, 移 民, 和优秀的生活质量等综合因素促成的。 我们正在观望一个世界级城市的崛起。
