NAR International Real Estate Transactions Report
International transactions in the production and consumption of goods and services are expanding. In calendar year 2007, the U.S. exported $1.15 Trillion of goods and $0.5 Trillion of services; and the U.S. imported $1.97 Trillion of goods and $0.378 Trillion of services. With the expansion of international trade, the flow of people across borders has also increased rapidly, and, therefore, the demand for real estate in both residential and commercial sectors in conjunction with international transactions has been on the rise. The New Mexico report presents recent economic and demographic data related to international business activity directly associated with the state.
