Buying Asia


Tim's first book, 'Turning Crisis into Profit: How to Make Money in Asian Property' prompted demand for the book to be replicated into a broadcast show for viewers to watch on their TV screens around the world. The step by step guide to investing in real estate sold out in less than 5 days in bookshelves across Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. This success revealed the growing appetite for real estate to form part of a sophisticated investment portfolio.

Buying Asia aims to educate viewers on the nuances of buying real estate – the episodes highlight the pitfalls and warning signs when investing in different markets and localities whilst also highlighting the prime areas that are ripe for property investment. The show is broken down by key fundamentals to be mindful of when exploring markets for investment; entry and exit taxes, mortgage financing availability, legal ownership structures as well as others, all form part of this key checklist. Tim covers each item off with the help of industry experts who provide critical insight into the past, present and futures of Asia markets.

Buying Asia is a pioneering series providing viewers with a unique insight into property investment in Asia. The show is enlightening, informative and colourful, and reveals the intricacies of property investment in an easy to understand format.
