North American Real Estate Investing Still in High Demand

The Entrust Group released its annual Real Estate Investor Market Research Report for 2015, and it shows growing interest in real estate investments in retirement savings accounts. The states with the most market interest are Arizona, California, Texas, and Colorado.

According to Ris Media, the Entrust Group is a well-known provider within the self-directed industry. The report includes trends showing where Individual Retirement Account (IRA) investors are purchasing property, what kinds of property they are buying, and how much they paid for it.

“We know from our own client base that there is tremendous interest in investing in real estate when saving for one’s retirement. But it isn’t always easy to know where to invest, in what type of property, and at what price range. This report is part of Entrust’s commitment to educating investors and the professionals who advise them on how to take control of their retirement savings,” said Jason Craig, president of The Entrust Group. “It gives investors, real estate professionals, and retirement advisers an overview of the market and insights into strategies used by many investors.”

Americans looking to use real estate investing as their retirement strategy are not the only ones interested in the United States real estate market. Reuters cites that both centi-millionaires and billionaire clients of Citigroup Inc’s private bank, many of whom are from China, are jumping at the opportunity to invest in luxury real estate in North America.

Although recent trends indicate that the North American market is beginning to lose its popularity, clients continue to look for investment opportunities in the area. Considering that a third or more of real estate investors earn more than $75,000 annually, they will not be slowing down anytime soon.

“It’s still quite robust,” Ida Liu, Citi Private Bank’s New York market head, said in an interview at Reuters Global Wealth Management Summit. “It’s the safest haven for them to diversify.”
