Australian retail property has attracted the most investment out of any country in the Asia Pacific region.
Research from CBRE showed that Australia's offices were the most significant draw over the 12 months up to June 2013. Meanwhile offices in Japan and Hong Kong were the second and third areas in the Asia Pacific where people looked to invest.
In fact, more properties were bought by foreign investors rather than Australians themselves.
The Australian reported, at the annual CBRE Market Outlook breakfast head of global research Nick Axford said the country has a better risk-return profile and prices compared to other countries in the region.
It isn't only commercial property that has attracted attention from foreign investors either. Research from Juwai, reported by Property Observer, shows Chinese buyers spent $5.4 billion in the financial year 2012/2013.
With Australia situated close to China and property finances at a low, due to interest rate cuts, many find that now is a good time to emigrate.
