Foreign Buyer's Guide:

If you are living outside the United States and interested in purchasing real estate in the United States, you're not alone. According to the National Association of Realtors® 2017 Profile of International Activity in U.S. Residential Real Estate, between April 2016 and March 2017, foreign buyers and recent immigrants purchased $153.0 billion of residential property, which is a 49 percent jump from 2016 ($102.6 billion) and surpasses 2015 ($103.9 billion) as the new survey high. Overall, 284,455 U.S. properties were bought by foreign buyers (up 32 percent from 2016), and purchases accounted for 10 percent of the dollar volume of existing-home sales (versus 8 percent in 2016). The study revealed that nearly half of all foreign sales were in three states: Florida, California and Texas. Interestingly, the study also revealed that although China maintained its top position in sales dollar volume for the fourth straight year, the significant rise in foreign investment in the survey came from a massive hike in activity from Canadian buyers. After dipping in the 2016 survey to $8.9 billion in sales ($11.2 billion in 2015), transactions from Canadians this year totaled $19.0 billion, a new high for Canada.

Property Search Options:

Don’t lose out on another property by having old information.  Obtain up to the minute information about properties listed on California’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system.  If you have any questions or would like help setting up a search just contact us; we’re for you; it only takes us a minute.  Your information is confidential and WILL NOT be shared.   Here’s what you can do:

  • MLS Search – Simply enter a MLS listing number, press enter and you will obtain information about any property listed on California’s MLS site;
  • Quick Search – Locate a property type, by price, within a specific geographic area (For example, 3 or more bedroom, 2 or more bathroom condo in Palm Desert for $200,000 or less);
  • Advanced Search – This works the same as the Quick Search, except provides additional features to narrow your search (For example, add 1 fireplace in the living room, a swimming pool and RV parking to the earlier specifications );
  • Saved Search – By saving your search you can re-run your search at any time and obtain up to the minute information; and
  • Automated Search - You can use an existing search or create one or more different searches that will trigger an email notification for you whenever a change (price, new listing) occurs to the previous results.
