California Attracting Foreign Investors


The Chinese firm, Oceanwide Holdings Group Co, is aggressively purchasing residential and commercial properties along the California coast, spending millions over the past two years. Oceanwide is currently developing a three-tower apartment complex, which include retail space and a hotel. There are also plans to build the second tallest tower in San Francisco, a Norman Foster designed 910-foot office building, and a recently purchased Sonoma County ranch with a winery, for $41 million.


Since 2012, Oceanwide has amassed a relatively large amount of private residential properties in Silicon Valley, with holdings in banks, brokerage, trusts and insurance, as well as investments in energy, advertising and print media in China. With a somber Chinese housing economy, the U.S. housing market, with its strong growth has become a much more attractive investment for foreign buyers from China, Canada and Norway.

“Novelette was very knowledgeable about the property and the area.  I felt that she was straight-forward about the negative or down-side of aspects of her work. After closing, Novelette asked for feedback on her services and seemed sincere in wanting to improve the negative. She also recommended service people for electrical, plumbing and carpentry, as I mentioned the changes and improvements that I anticipated to make the house "mine’.”
