Chart from National Association of Realtors.
It’s a great time to purchase real estate in the U.S. With inventory at an all-time high, prices at or close to rock bottom, and mortgage rates at historic lows, people are again considering real estate as an investment to round out their portfolios. And foreigners are in the game.
A new report released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) details the trend. The number of sales to foreigners not residing in the U.S. continues to be holding in the 2 percent range, proving that individuals worldwide are taking advantage of our market, recognizing its value and the propability of values rebounding.

Other NAR surveys have indicated that an additional 2 to 3 percent of residential sales are made to those international customers who live in the U.S. Additional information on international activities is available here.
