May 6, 2019 | Analasys, Article, Blog, Financial, Home, Market, Property, Real Estate, US

The housing market in the United States allows foreign property investors to buy, sell and rent properties across all 50 states. The United States has the world’s strongest and most stable economy. And with regards to real estate investing, this results in an increasing demand for housing and commercial space which provides property investors with great opportunities.

Most foreign buyers buy condos, apartment or luxury properties but there are also small property investors who would buy a small home and flip it or rent it out for rental income. Fixing an old property and selling it after renovation is also seemed as a profitable investment since old properties have a lower asking price. Understand the city where you would be investing involves a lot of factors but primary factors to be considered as job growth as well as demand for rental accommodation etc.

The commercial real estate market has been positive and has interest rates that have been steadily on the rise for the past two years. Compared to other major markets that have dipped into negative rates, the US presents a valuable and reliable return on investment. Commercial real estate should remain fairly insulated and thus still attractive to foreign investors regardless of the political situation.

Despite the varying laws per state, America is considered a tax-friendly investment for foreign buyers as opposed to investing in Vancouver, Canada or London, the UK where the taxes are too costly for foreign investors. A good real estate lawyer can help you out researching the best place as well as the way to invest in the US so that there is minimal tax impact in your overseas property dealings. The government allows foreign taxpayers investing in the US housing market to deduct certain expenses like mortgage interest, property taxes, and depreciation.

With readily available finance for foreign buyers, now is as good as any to invest in US real estate market.
