There are many reasons people buy property in the US, but – in 2019 – does it look like a good place to make money? Among the items to consider are:

... Are the political and economic ups and downs damaging the market?

... What are its longer-term prospects? 

... Where is performing best – and which are the places to avoid?

... What about emigration to the US?

Are you so fed up with our politicians you want a bit of Trump? John Howell will be joined by Realtors representing Keller Williams (Florida) and Harvest Homes Realty (Detroit).
