SAN FRANCISCO: US high-end real estate brokerages are trying to tout “rare offerings” with unique features to Chinese buyers, said Rachel Swann, a managing partner on Sunday.

“When buyers are looking, they look for what is not available daily and commonplace; they look for the diamond in the rough—something you keep in a collection, something with a story or iconic aspect to it,” said Swann, who works at the San Francisco office of the Agency, a full-service luxury real estate brokerage based in California, reports Xinhua.

Chinese buyers have topped the list of international home buyers in the United States for seven consecutive years, followed by neighboring Canada.
