Foreign investors love the U.S. residential housing marketing, according to a recent report by CNN Money.

Purchasers from Canada, Mexico, India and the U.K. are leading the pack right now, and they’re bullish on the country’s growth indicators, according to the report.

Says CNN Money:

“The U.S. has been named the hottest market for global residential property in a survey of 14 countries by real estate advisors Savills. The researchers analyzed economic and demographic trends to forecast how much prices in popular cities will rise over the next five years.

“And the essential ingredients for solid returns? A combination of population growth, rising wealth and limited housing supply.”

That means investment, development and homebuilding are booming, according to the Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2016 report.
