According to a recently released survey by the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE), the U.S. housing market will continue to appeal to foreign investors in the coming year. The survey, in its 23rd year, indicated that more than 90 percent of international investor respondents are planning to maintain or increase the size of their U.S. portfolio in 2015.
“As it periodically has been in the past, the United States is currently the target of much of the foreign investment in real estate globally,” said Thomas Arnold, AFIRE. “With a stable and transparent market and an economy that appears to be steadily improving without the fits and starts experienced in other regions, the U.S. has become the first stop for foreign real estate investors.”
By a wide margin, the U.S. was voted the most stable and secure country for investment and capital appreciation. Investors ranked multi-family as their preferred property type.
Two-thirds of survey respondents expect China to become the largest source of inbound capital to the U.S. in 2016 and beyond, with 72 percent expecting investments to be long-term, permanent inflow.
