According to a recent release of “2013 International Clients Survey” by CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ (C.A.R.), international home buyers prefer purchasing properties in the United States than other countries as they view U.S. as a safe place to invest their money.
85% of surveyed international home buyers said they consider purchasing properties in the U.S. as the stable government and financial system can guarantee their home investment. 15% would consider investing in countries like Canada, Germany, Mexico, China, Singapore, Sweden and France.
Looking at California specifically, international home buyers purchase properties mostly in Southern California like Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego Counties or Santa Clara County in the Bay Area.
