    US Real Estate

    Anyone in Hong Kong following the US real estate market?

    I am wondering whether HK investors are starting to shift their attention to buying apartments in the US???

    We know quite a few people local and expats alike who are buying properties in the US. . . and advising us to do the same. I think it's all a matter of perspective. If you compare the US housing prices (excluding Manhattan), home prices in the US are quite cheap.

    However, if you compare it to the US home prices from 5 years ago, depending on which region you are looking at (My observation is based on the Southern California RE market) . . the prices could be the same prior to the big bubble, but still higher than it was in 2002.
