Profile of U.S. Residents Seeking to Purchase a Property Abroad in April 2015—March 2016

International real estate is multi-faceted. Not only do international clients choose to purchase U.S. real estate, U.S. clients are also interested in purchasing property abroad. Approximately 14 percent of responding REALTORS® reported that they had a client who was seeking to purchase property in another country compared to six percent in the previous 12-month period, according to NAR’s recently released 2016 Profile of International Activity in U.S. Residential Real Estate.

Among REALTORS® who had clients interested in purchasing property abroad, the countries that generated the most inquiries were Mexico, Costa Rica, Philippines, Colombia, and Canada. Spain, Brazil, Thailand, and Italy were also countries of interest to domestic clients searching for property abroad.

countries

The vast majority of U.S. clients seeking property abroad were interested in residential property (79 percent), and a slim majority of those seeking residential property were interested in purchasing a detached single-family home (53 percent) while nearly a third (30 percent) were interested in a condominium. Most clients (87 percent) were looking to use the property as a vacation home and/or residential rental unit. Only nine percent of U.S. clients were seeking a primary residence abroad.

Among all respondents, four percent reported that they referred an interested buyer to a business contact outside the United States, three percent helped the client directly, and one percent referred the client to a business contact in the United States who works with international clients. About six percent of respondents reported that they had a client interested in purchasing property abroad but could not refer the client to anyone to assist in the purchase process.[1]

Today’s Go-To Interior Color Choices: Pastels and Whites

Move over gray. Pastels and whites are softening up the color palette of more homes in 2016.

On-trend colors of pastels are entering more household décor, like in accessories from decorative bowls and vases to florals and throw pillows. The major paint companies all agree: Lighter colors and whites are this year’s go-to interior colors.

Pantone voted Rose Quartz (a pinkish hue) and Serenity (a soft blue) its colors of the year for 2016.  Sherwin-Williams announced Alabaster – an off-white tone– as its 2016 Color of the Year, echoing Benjamin Moore’s choice of Simply White.

White can be a particularly great choice when prepping a home for sale. But to keep white walls from looking too sterile, layer in lots of rich texture when selling a home, sats home stager Julie Young with BY Design Home Staging in San Antonio, Texas.

“If it’s an all-white room, it can feel static and cold.” Texture – like through organic materials of branches or colored orchids or even different tones of white accessories – can help make an otherwise monotone space feel more warm and welcoming to buyers, Young says.
