Japanese Investors Stepping into the MultiFamily Market

An interesting article was published on Multi-Housing News..."Japanese Investors Seek U.S. Multifamily Opportunities." Currently in Japan, the real estate market is oversaturated, whereas here in the US we continue to face a soft housing market. That, coupled with incredibly low interest rates (3.2% vs. the 7% in the US), has led a Japanese real estate development firm (Nomura Real Estate Development) to seek multifamily and commercial investment opportunities in the US - most specifically- in the New York area. The areas they took most interest were regions similar to the suburbs of Tokyo...metro areas with good school districts.

If Japan indeed does start investing in the US, it may be another key factor to keep the trend in multifamily housing growing.Fire-rated sheathing, town homes, multi-family construction, housing market, small cap, otcbb, ibtgf, barrier, blazeguard, mycoguard, fire-rated paint, intumescent paint, mold, mildew, fire-retardant plywood, frt, sips, structurally insulative panels, fire-rated wall assemblies, commercial modular, modular home construction, green building products, LEED, control room, electrical panel backer board
