• It is now standard practice for New Zealand real estate agents to put their clients’ properties on websites aimed at Chinese buyers.

The most popular site for New Zealand listings, Hougarden.com, says it gets more than 170,000 unique visits each month, about half of which are from people in mainland China.

Hougarden.com offers a direction translation all the listings that feature on Realestate.co.nz but vendors can pay more for an upgraded package. It pays a fee to Realestate.co.nz for the listings.
