International transactions are of increasing importance. With the expansion of international trade, the flow of people across borders has also increased rapidly, and, therefore, the demand for real estate in both residential and commercial sectors in conjunction with international transactions has been on the rise. NAR provides the state-by-state reports on international transactions below to give an overview of the real estate markets on a state-by-state basis as well as information on economic activity.
The purpose of the current state-by-state reports is to present recent economic and demographic data related to international business activity directly associated with each of the states. There are 51 reports — one per state and for the District of Columbia. State specific demographic and economic data are available in each state report on a variety of topics:
- Population demographics: U.S. born, foreign born, naturalized, and non-U.S. citizen residents
- Main languages spoken in households
- Immigration and naturalization trends
- Non-immigrant visitors to the state
- Foreign direct investment in the U.S. and the specific state
- Value of state exports by type of product
- State exports to specific trading partner countries
The current report is one of a number of recently released NAR reports on international subjects. The previously released 2012 NAR Profile of International Home Buying Activity presented an overview of U.S. home purchases by people whose primary residence is outside of the U.S.
Note: Each report is a PDF, roughly 1 MB in size. Viewing and saving these reports requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Reports were created in September 2012.
