FOREIGN INVESTOR SERVICES
Our firm offers specialized legal services in connection with the acquisition, development, construction, management and disposition of real estate for foreign investors interested in acquiring real estate in the United States. Foreign investors have, in recent years, intensified efforts to acquire prime property in the United States. These intensified efforts are due, in part, to the relative security associated with doing business in the United States and, in part, to the high return potential associated with well-located U.S. properties. Typically, United States real estate exhibits the following characteristics: numerous investment opportunities, priced attractively, particularly when compared to real estate in other countries; an organized and efficient real estate market which functions according to relatively predictable processes; the general availability of long-term fully amortized non-recourse mortgage financing at relatively low interest rates when compared to other countries; and the consistent ability of well-located properties to increase in value at rates which may often exceed the rate of inflation. If you are considering investing in real estate in the United States, please contact us.
