Global real estate investors are flocking to the U.S.
A new survey shows that while London was the number one city among foreign real estate investors, the rest of the top five cities were all in the U.S.: New York (#2), San Francisco (#3), Houston (#4), Los Angeles (#5).
The survey of members of the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate said the U.S. is the "stable and secure" country for real-estate investment "by a wide margin." The U.S. is also the top market when it comes to capital appreciation and for future real-estate purchases.

The latest data from the National Association of Realtors, which was released last summer, showed that foreign buyers had scooped up $68.2 billion of single-family homes in the U.S. in the year ended March 2013. That's about 7 percent of the total U.S. market. That was down slightly from the $82.5 billion invested during the same period of 2012, but up from 2011. The fastest growth in foreign buyers was from China and Canada.
