Why buy property in Xi'an, China?

During Xian's 3,100 year development, 13 dynasties of China placed their capitals here. Xi'an enjoys equal fame with Athens, Cairo, and Rome as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals. In particular the Terra Cotta Warriors- dubbed as the 8th wonder of the world and the most significant archaeological excavations of the 20th century- are a sight not to be missed by any visitor to China. That’s great, but as an investor in modern Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi Provincewhich is located about 800 kms South-West of Beijing, your portfolio is more concerned with the 30% increases we are seeing after 6 months on high end property purchases inside the city walls*.

Xi'an welcomes you!

We are devoting more efforts to environmental improvement and ecological protection, including the Project for Water and Green aimed to build an ecological city through rejuvenating her reputation of “Eight Rivers surrounding Chang’an”. We are accelerating the growth of “Four Zones and Districts, One Base” (Xi’an Hi-tech Industries Development Zone, Xi’an Economic and Technological Industries Development Zone, Qujiang New District, Chanhe and Bahe Rivers Ecological District, and Yanliang Aviation Hi-tech Industries Base) so as to comprehensively elevate Xi’an’s characteristic industries and core competitiveness.
