Signs of Global Strength

It's official. International buyers continue to identify the United States as a desirable place not only to own property, but also to make a profitable investment.

According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2015 Profile of International Home Buying Activity, total residential international sales in the United States equaled $104 billion for the year ending March 2015 - a 13 percent increase from the previous year. International sales now are roughly 8 percent of the total U.S. housing market.

Notably, while many homes purchased by foreign buyers are used as a primary residence, vacation and rental use are also major reasons for a purchase. All totaled, 61 percent of international buyers purchased detached single-family homes, according to REALTOR® data. In the foreseeable future, that strong activity is expected to continue, mirroring the general housing market nationwide.

Why Invest in the United States?

Generally speaking, with its large and diversified economy, the United States is the premier location for investment.

The U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) of approximately $17 trillion is significantly larger than the GDP of any other country. The GDP value of the U.S. represents 27 percent of the world economy.

From a housing perspective, recent advantageous market conditions have drawn increasing interest from foreign buyers, including U.S. economic strength, low housing prices, solid demand, strong rental rates and attractive exchange rates.

"We live in an international marketplace. So while all real estate is local, that does not mean that all property buyers are. Foreign buyers are being enticed to U.S. real estate because of what they recognize as attractive prices, economic stability, and an incredible opportunity for investment in their future."
