Nearly a quarter of Realtors® served international clients in 2008/2009, according to the recently released 2009 NAR Profile of International Home Buying Activity Cloak & Dagger dvdrip Three Way film report. The study shows a decline in the percentage of Realtors® selling homes to foreign buyers compared to previous years: 23 percent in 2009, 26 percent in 2008 and 32 percent in 2007. The percentage of decline, however, has narrowed and mirrors the overall decline in the existing home sales market. (Sales decreased 39 percent between September 2005 and January 2009 due to financial and economic conditions.) NAR reports that there is confidence that when global economic market conditions improve, the rate of home purchases by international buyers will increase.
The 2009 study indicates that the greatest home purchasing activity by international clients occurred in Florida, Texas, California, and Arizona. The top regions of origin for international buyers were Europe (30.8 percent), North America (27.5 percent) and Asia (25.2 percent).
The current report reflects activity of Realtors® in the 12 months between May 2008 and May 2009. It also contains data on commercial purchases and information about barriers to foreign buyers to purchasing U.S. property.
