USA Third Place to Invest in 2010 say UK Buyers

Services for Real Estate Pros with TRINIDIGITAL


A poll of 1100 international property investors has resulted in the US coming in third place for investment in 2010.

Brazil is on every international real estate investor's lips right now. The Olympic effect has seen investment from all over the world and entry into this market is easier with low property prices. France is not a surprise as it's a firm favourite with UK buyers with a huge variety of property and importantly a relatively stable housing market. The USA property market is offering armchair investors superb investments, as an example we're promoting 3 bed houses which include paying tenants for $20,000. Florida is a buyer's paradise with brand new luxury homes going for the price of a cramped studio apartment in the UK. Recent news from the region indicates that Florida prices have bottomed out and the only way for prices to go is up.   

Overseas property investors will read with interest the results of a survey conducted by the International real estate website The survey results include some surprising omissions and put Brazil, France and the USA as the top places to invest in 2010   The prediction comes after 1100 overseas property investors were asked to compile there top ten places to buy abroad in 2010. The respondents were asked to take into consideration the following factors in deciding their top places to invest in 2010   These factors were: 

  • Housing market entry prices
  • Potential capital growth
  • Types of property available
  • Ease of purchase for international buyers
  • Stability in the region
  • Accessibility by international travellers
  • The attitude of government towards overseas buyers

The survey results show that Investment Property in Brazil. France and The US showed the most potential for 2010 with Brazil coming in first place. The top ten regions produced some surprise omissions. Despite an abundance of distressed property available in Spain  investors did not place the region in the top ten. Another region that would have been previously featured was Dubai which also failed to make the rankings. Thailand had also failed to make the list this year with investors it seems put off by political instability. New kids on the block for investment potential were Malaysia, South Africa and Abu Dhabi.   The top ten rankings look like this: Top Ten Places To Invest In 2010  

  1. Brazil
  2. France
  3. USA
  4. Egypt
  5. Turkey
  6. Greek Islands 
  7. Australia 
  8. Malaysia 
  9. South Africa
  10. Abu Dhabi

Hi Nickolas I've received my I.R.E.S. Designation in Vancouver, BC, Canada and I noticed that you have similar designations.  I'm messaging you because I want to expand my international connections.  I'm presently building a larger network so that your listings can be featured in my city (for an international exposure), and mine can be featured by you.  Presently I have approximately 20 listings which might be of interest to you.  

Interested?  Look forward to chatting some more with you with respect to co-listing each other's properties, if you are interested in speaking further?  Cheers, Jark.
