Investing in U.S. Land. It’s better than gold!
Interest in buying real estate, whether a single lot, a house or acreage, is an increasing focus of residents of many countries as they seek safe havens to invest for their futures. And from Russia to China to Korea to Mexico to Argentina, there is a growing sense that U.S. land has become the world’s best investment.
Consider that it’s generally acknowledged that there are only two investments in the world with inherent value. Those are gold and U.S. real estate.
With the price of gold at record levels and the price of real estate in the U.S. is at its most affordable level in 20 years, U.S. land is thus now better than gold as a long-term investment.
But a major segment of the potential-buyer audience in the United States is at a most challenging time for consideration of purchasing real estate or land as investment because of the mortgage problems faced by large numbers of U.S. residents. Many refinanced their homes for various reasons, putting large numbers of such residents either “under water” or, at best, tapped out of home-equity.
The goal of this site, InvestingInUSLand.com, is to serve as a repository for information that those living in other countries can access about opportunities to buy land in the United States.
It thus represents an ideal site for those having real estate, either residential or resort developments or land parcels for sale, to position themselves with a global audience.
The National Association of Realtors’ 2010 profile of international home
buying activity, covering the 12-month period between April 1, 2009, and March 31, 2010, showed that foreign buyers, including those with residency outside the United States, have purchased an estimated $66 billion of U.S. residential property. That’s 7 percent of the residential market.
The NAR report said international buyers were noted in 39 states in 2010, adding that a slight majority of the total buyers are concentrated in Florida, California, Arizona and Texas. These four states accounted for 53 percent of purchases and have remained the top destinations for the past three years, with Florida and California remaining the top two destinations.
