Capture the Global Market with CIPS—
25% OFF CIPS Courses and Bundles
NAR recently released its 2016 Profile of International Home Buying Activity, indicating that foreign investment in the United States remains strong, at $102.6 billion. In addition, it was found that foreign buyers favor more expensive properties and are more likely to make an all-cash purchase. Although foreigners purchased properties nationwide, five states accounted for 51% of transactions: Florida, California, Texas, Arizona, and New York. For all real estate professionals—but within these five states in particular—global clients may be an unexplored business opportunity.
