Chinese real estate developers continue to look overseas for money amid tightening credit supply at home.

In the first two weeks of this year, at least four major real estate companies have unveiled plans to issue bonds or medium-term notes at overseas markets, to raise a combined $2.6 billion. That burst is on top of soaring overseas financing seen in 2017.
