Pacific Business News reports: International capital will continue to have a significant impact in both commercial and residential real estate markets in Europe and the Americas, says Steven Williams, an executive manager at commercial real estate data and analytics firm Real Capital Analytics and keynote speaker at the FIABCI Asia Pacific Real Estate Congress. Williams highlighted the Asia-Pacific region as a leading source of this capital. Of the $400 billion in transactions in the U.S. in the first half of 2015, $67 billion in capital was from the Asia-Pacific and $201 billion was from the Americas, according to Real Capital Analytics.
Williams also noted that current risk factors—China’s currency crisis, U.S. politics, Middle East conflicts, oil prices and Central Bank policies—present opportunities for smart investors.
