Land and Property
property market in the US
To many people from the UK and Ireland, buying property in
the USA seems like an excellent and relatively easy option.
The US has many draws as it has areas with wonderful weather,
plenty of coastline, big business centres and lots of areas
that are full of activities and attractions that make excellent
places to have second homes. Regular flights are available
from the UK to many US locations. You can get to NewYork,
Boston and Chicago from Dublin with connections to most parts
of the US and the fact that they speak the same language
makes living or staying there a whole lot easier. However,
despite all these great reasons and the apparent ease with
which property can be bought (there are no restrictions on
foreigners purchasing property), it does not necessarily mean
that buying property in the US is a simple matter.
.. The best approach to have when looking to purchase property
in the US is to treat it like a continent rather than a country.
The reason for this is that each State will have different
laws regarding the purchase of property. Taxes and requirements
will be different from those in the UK and Europe and will
also vary from State to State. It is therefore essential that
you examine the relevant material for each US State you are
interested in investing in. When you decide which State you
want to buy in, then you should make sure you get an agent
and advisor who is familiar with the procedures and laws of
the property market specific to that State. It is always the
case that making a mistake when buying property can be very
Buying property in the US has long been attractive to the
Europeans and in all likelihood it will continue to be. Favourite
spots for the British include Florida (for the weather) and
Las Vegas (for the entertainment and sites). California is
also a big draw. Whilst certain areas are a safe bet for an
investment , it really goes without saying that you should
visit and fully investigate the area before purchasing. Renting
a car and driving around the neighbouring developments is
a good idea.
Despite the recent
slowdown, if you purchase property in a desirable area in
the US the long term return on your investment will almost
certainly be good. Las Vegas is one
of the great locations because of it fantastic growth over
the past years. It is worth remembering that, due to
the US being a vastly larger country than the UK, you will
generally get more for your money (certainly in terms of square
feet) in the US than the UK or other European locations.
There are some exceptions of course, such as Manhattan in
New York, where all property is very expensive.
Florida has long been an attractive place to invest for both
foreigners and US citizens alike. The climate and the extensive
coastline are perhaps the main draws. The lifestyle in the
area is certainly very appealing, especially as a place to
retire to. It is also a very attractive place to buy a holiday
home, not only because of the weather, but also because of
the wealth of attractions in the State (such as Disney Land),
as well as an enormous number of golf courses and the extensive
coastline. For UK investors the regularity, convenience and
relative cheapness of flights to Florida also add to the appeal
of buying a property there. This also makes it easier to fully
explore and investigate the area before purchasing, so you
can assess what you are getting yourself into and pick the
best area for you. As it is such an attractive place for the
British to holiday you should have no trouble finding a car
rental using a <a href="http://www.comparecarhire.co.uk/">car

enable you fully investigate the State by driving around the
areas that are of interest to you.

land is something you should consider carefully, unless you

that case, I don't believe we can offer much advice. While
you are checking out the sites we link to, may I suggest you
ask the Agents who don't have Land for sale to recommend a
colleague to you. This can prove very helpful and widen your
choice of contacts in a particular location.
