Global Investors Still Choose United States As Best Property Investment Area.
Global Investors Still Favor Florida And California Lead as Best Property Investment Areas in U.S.
According to the California Association of Realtors (CAR) “2013 International Clients Survey”, global property investors preferred purchasing properties in the United States over all other countries for property investments. These foreign buyers still view the U.S. as a safe place to put their money.
The vast majority (85 percent) of international buyers said they only considered purchasing a home in the U.S., citing that the stable government and financial system would guarantee their home investment. Fifteen percent considered investing in other countries, with Canada, Germany, Mexico, China, Singapore, Sweden, and France cited as other countries most considered.
Over $68.2 billion in residential property transactions occurred in the U.S. during 2013, down from $82.5 billion in 2012 according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
International buyers also chose to purchase in the U.S. for its desirable location and climate (20 percent), to be closer to family and friends (20 percent), investment opportunities (9 percent), changes in work and employment (9 percent), educational opportunities (6 percent), and affordable prices (4 percent).
International buyers purchased a property in the U.S. primarily for investment purposes or tax advantages (18 percent) or to rent out (14 percent), contrary to traditional home buyers, who purchased primarily because they were tired of renting (23 percent).
While Florida received the most foreign buyer activity in 2013, looking at California specifically, Los Angeles County was the top location where international buyers purchased properties (35 percent). International buyers also purchased homes in Orange (22 percent), San Diego (20 percent), Riverside (14 percent), Contra Costa (7 percent), and Santa Clara (7 percent) counties.
The top four states in terms of number of international buyers:
- Florida: 23% of U.S. total
- California: 17% of U.S. total
- Arizona: 9% of U.S. total
- Texas: 9% of U.S. total

15960 Via Broma in Whispering Palms Is An Enchanting Home That Will Be “Unveiled” Next Week With a Catered Party.
This Via Broma Home can be viewed at WWW.ViaBroma.Com before the party.
Via Broma is one of the nicest single story homes I have seen in Whispering Palms for all the years I have owned and lived here. Spanish influences abound here with a revival aspect reflected in the beautiful arches throughout the home. 3 bedrooms and an office on one side offers privacy while the other side of the home is dedicated to entertaining with a casual family room, formal dining room, kitchen, Patio Room and a Garden that rivals all Gardens I have ever seen in Whispering Palms. This elegant home sits on 1/4 acre of flat property.
The Biszantz Connection is having an “unveiling” party from 4-7pm so Realtors and buyers can see the special qualities this home has at night for formal or informal entertaining. If you would like an invitation and or interested in seeing the home, please call The Biszantz Connection Office at 858-755-0075.
15960 Via Broma’s Curb Appeal Day Or Night is Enchanting.

Biszantz Connection just listed a SINGLE STORY on the golf course at Whispering Palms with 3 bedroom.
Whispering Palms has only a few single story townhomes on the golf course and this one is the best!
Rarely does such a beautifully maintained END UNIT with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, single story with fairway views forever come on the market??? Well this one I have personally golfed by for years wondering if it would ever come on the market and if it did, I would buy it in a heart beat! As it turns, my life has turned and my house on the “other side ” of the golf course has the space and size we need for my new family.
Air conditioning, huge front and back patio, high ceilings and privacy all make this one special property.
One of the nicest features of this unit is that you can watch golfers drive their balls from the tee box, then
they golf buy you and end up right in front of your place making their puts. Few balls ever make this location and it is considered party central!
Here are some more photos for you to look at; call me if you would like a private showing:

Red Frog Beach is a new luxury resort emerging in the Bocas del Toro region of Panama.
Red Frog Beach in Panama has jungles, beachfront, rainforests and colorful Caribbean towns.
The archipelago is home to some of the most stunning scenery in the tropics and our island is uniquely positioned to captivate the angler, boater, beach lover or eco-enthusiast. Rainforest hikes, beachcombing walks, exploring the colorful Caribbean towns and of course sunbathing on world class beaches are all part of the equation. In fact, Bastimentos Island, where the project is located, has the region’s best beaches- wide, straw colored strands with those impossible aquamarine waters. Red Frog beach is the most accessible and it is named after the diminutive red frogs that are abundant in the undergrowth around the beach and throughout the island.
The jungle that frames these beaches is as special as these beaches. Verdant, lush and with a fantastically diverse ecosystem, it is no surprise that the preserves in the region have been named a World Heritage site. Panama is out of the hurricane zone and our marina is nestled in the smooth, glass like waters on the leeward side of our island. The Red Frog Marina Village features our new state-of-the-art Marina with slips accommodating yachts up to 140 feet in length available for lease or sale.
While their 1500 acre resort community is emerging and under construction, they have a number of completed villas available for sale or vacation rental. The villas feature private plunge pools, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and expansive patios with full or partial Caribbean views. Most villas sleep 6-8 comfortably and are a ten minute walk to both Turtle and Red Frog Beaches. Villas, all with private plunge pools, are currently priced from the 400′s to the high $700′s. There are a myriad of different activities for visitors to our project and for the active traveler who enjoys nature walks, fishing, boat tours, kayaking or just relaxing, this will be the perfect destination experience.
