Chinese investors are dumping U.S. CRE investments under pressure from Beijing

Chinese investors are dumping their commercial real estate investments, a casualty of the escalating trade war between the U.S. and China. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, Chinese investors sold $1.29 billion of U.S. CRE in the second quarter, while purchasing only $126.2 million. This is the first time the cohort has been a net seller since 2008.
