"Chinese buyers spend more than twice the market average. The Chinese spend an average of $590,826 per property, while the average price in the U.S. market overall is $247,417," Henry said.
The president of the U.S. China Real Estate Association, Bill Seto, said there is a fear that the Chinese are pricing the middle class and even some wealthy Americans out of certain markets, especially when it comes to housing.
"They don't like to haggle. Reputation is very important; they like to pay high prices so they could outbid the other competitor, and that's the way it is."
Wealthy Chinese who are putting their money into America come from all walks of life, from multibillionaires to the upper and middle class to the Chinese workers who toil in mines.

"A person that's working all their life…and all of a sudden, they're multimillionaires," Seto told CNBC.
Steve Orlins, president of the National Committee U.S.-China Relations, said that all this Chinese interest and investment in the U.S. could benefit American workers.
"The relationship between the United States and China, even though it goes through all this kind of turmoil, will become stronger because of the Chinese investment in the United States," he said.
