At the level of individual transactions, the pandemic has had a significant impact on investor decision-making, but overall, the United States remains a fundamentally attractive real estate market. Today, low interest rates and taxes, a relatively stable U.S. economy, and the liquidity and transparency of the domestic real estate market have contributed to an acceleration of real estate activity – including record amounts of foreign investment.
At the same time, given the complexity of US law, with its multiple jurisdictions (e.g. federal, state and municipal), as well as real estate regulations that can differ by region, careful planning and counsel is important for all U.S.-bound real estate investors. There is much more to real estate investment than taxation; successful investors must be well-informed about the operational and legal contexts relevant to their investments, and they need sound legal advice every step of the way when they’re making decisions.
