If the U.S. economy is as bad as some would have you believe, why do foreign investors continue to flock to our shores to buy our homes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, land, and anything that smells like “real estate”. Simple: we are the place still most desired, still the safest for investment, still the darling of the world. In 2012, according to the National Association of Realtors, sales to foreign investors will reach 82 Billion in 2012! That will be a 24% increase Year-Over-Year from 2011.
The most popular states for foreign investors are California, Florida, Arizona and Texas and the highest number of investors come from China, Canada, and South America.
