Welcome to Asian Council
I am glad to notify RESA members that the Asian Council has been established! Welcome to this new and vibrant community!
Why Asian Council:
Today, Multicultural People Earn More and Own More than at any Previous Time in Recorded History.
13.3 million Asian Americans live in the United States, which is about
5% of the total population. Another 3.5 million Asian Canadians live in
Canada, representing approximately 11% of that country's total
Our buying power:
to the U.S. Census Bureau, Statistical Abstract of the U.S., Income,
Expenditure, and Wealth 2002, about 2.3% of American households have an
annual income of more than $200,000.
the Asian American community, this number is 4.1%, almost twice the
national average. By 2010, these numbers will be 5.0% and 7.8%
respectively. When compared with the national average, Asian Americans
also have the highest median household income: $55,026 versus $42,873.
Americans compose the richest group of multicultural people in North
America. Buying power of Asian Americans has increased by 45.9% in just
the past five years. Thanks to the fast-growing Asian American economy,
Asian immigrants are much wealthier today than in the past, and the
number of very wealthy Asian Americans has increased significantly.
percent of Asian Americans work in high-paying positions, such as
advanced management or technology, and many are highly entrepreneurial.
Asian Americans are also the most highly educated group in the United
States, with 44% of them having at least a B.A. degree. Fifty-two
percent of Asian American business owners are college graduates, as
opposed to an average of 43% for all business owners in general.
Twenty-five percent of Asian Americans have a postgraduate degree, which
is also higher than the national average of 19%.
We love houses:
ownership in the Asian American market is 60.8%, a 19.2% increase in
just the last 10 years-the fastest rate of increase in the North
American housing market. In GTA Canada, Asians account for half of all
real estate transactions, and they tend to move about every three to
five years. Because of their unique cultural heritage, Asians often have
particular housing preferences, which also applies to home staging:
they prefer certain styles to other ones. On the other hand, Asians need
to know more about mainstream culture in North America so that their
home staging efforts will be more in line with market demands and appeal
to a greater range of potential buyers.
What we do:
- Set both short-term and long-term goals for the Asian Council

marketing strategies for home sales
