Realestate bubble

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Whenever I trade with China I pay in USD, so I don't see it happening that fast. Plus.... The Cambodian government is still pretty weak, the Bong Thom's like the USD they can spend anywhere without capital controls and resentment against the Chinese is on the rise. And bong Narin and Srey Lek love their dollars too....

I work in this sector and I can tell you there will not be any bubble or crash for at least the next five years.
A confident statement. Do you work on the sell side of real estate?

The main thing that interests me is the likely impact on Cambodia when the next financial crisis hits, and the impact from China's OBOR and dedollarisation policies. Cambodia is different from other Asian countries in being so dollarised. That should mean less impact from the former and more impact from the latter.

Both. I’m a conduit for buyers and sellers to bring them together. Mostly PRC and Indonesian Chinese.

They also love their gold. Gave's point is that China will be pushing hard to reduce the use of the USD in Asia and those selling to China will be persuaded to accept RMB for their goods and services. When those RMB are exchangeable for gold, they will presumably have no objection.
For those buying from China, there is no problem with dedollarisation, you will simply have to convert your USD into RMB before you make payment.

Maybe currency rest coming in the near future.

What exactly are they typically buying? Land, condos?
Do you mean the foreigners are both buyers and sellers, or do you mean Khmers are selling to the foreigner buyers?
