Florida REALTOR® Flys to France for World’s Largest Real Estate Conference to Show off Southwest Florida Real Estate Opportunities
Punta Gorda, FL. FEBRUARY 16, 2018
Della Booth, REALTOR® and the Broker/ Owner of TIME Realty Services located in Punta Gorda, Florida will be showing off real estate and investment opportunities in Southwest Florida by attending MIPIM, the world’s leading global real estate market, business conference and networking event, being held March 13-16 in Cannes, France.
This Floridian will be part of a growing USA pavilion, hosted by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the nation’s largest real estate trade organization. NAR will be among 3,100 exhibitors at this year’s event.
About 24,000 leading real estate executives from 100 countries, including thousands of investors, are expected to attend the annual gathering of the global real estate industry. The event brings together investors, developers, occupiers, architects, hotel groups, public authorities, city mayors and property associations from around the world.
NAR continues to expand its presence at this global event, providing local and regional U.S. markets the ability to showcase opportunities for foreign investment.
“The U.S. remains the top-ranked market for real estate investors,” said Elizabeth Mendenhall, 2018 president of the 1.3-million-member trade association. “Despite potential risks associated with emerging technologies, e-commerce, the ‘sharing economy’ and geopolitical events, foreign investors in a recent survey named the U.S. the most stable market for real estate investment and the best opportunity for capital appreciation. Overall, the market is healthy, with commercial property prices rising 90 percent in the last seven years,” Mendenhall added. “Multiple years of steady job growth and the strengthening U.S. economy – albeit at a modest pace – make commercial property a good bet for foreign investors looking to diversify their portfolios and generate returns outside their country of origin.” Mendenhall explained that “current interest in industrial and logistics properties due to the growth of online shopping creates opportunities in markets not traditionally identified as a destination for foreign investment.”
“I am very excited to share some of the amazing investment and lifestyle opportunities to be found here in Florida,” says Booth. “Not only is it one of the most beautiful states in the USA to live and play, it’s also a business friendly state with a great tax structure. This presents attractive opportunities and increased interest from foreign property investors.”
In addition to Florida, markets featured in the USA pavilion include the states of Arizona, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington, and the metro areas of Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles, Coastal Carolina/Myrtle Beach, Northern Virginia and San Antonio. Markets participating in the USA “zone,” adjacent to the USA Pavilion are Florida State, Miami and San Diego, along with the CCIM Institute and the Society of Office and Industrial REALTORS®.
