Little or nothing do such investors know that in the United States of America, for instance, there are homes selling at 50 percent below market price from which they can earns at least 20 percent rental income per annum.

“Our team handles every step of your investment, from purchase to property management, and legal to taxation so you can be rest assured that you will have a lifetime of transparent, reliable and secure investment in the world’s most lucrative property market.
The majority of our clients purchase several properties over the period of their investment, and it is for this reason that we build our operation on trust, relationships and the success of our client’s investments,” he assures.
In an answer to why investors and home seekers should invest or buy in US, Akinola explains that houses are cheap at the moment because of the global financial crisis, purchase process is simple and safe; US rental market remains vibrant and profitable, and US properties are now rising in value at moderate pace.
He reveals that the main requirement to buy US real estate is cash, if the buyer wants to buy through their company. “If you want to do it yourself, you need to engage the services of an agent, an attorney, and a tax accountant. If the house needs repairs, you will need to engage the services of a repair contractor. If you want to rent out the property, you will need to engage the services of a property manager. IPC has all these professionals under its umbrella, so that all you need to buy a US property is just cash,” he emphasises.
He advises that it is better and easier to pay cash because financing options are not so many for non-resident foreigners in US, adding that financial institutions in the US hardly give out loans to foreigners except they are resident in the US and have a good job and a great credit rating.
“There are some financing options that could be explored but they come with strict conditions. If you are purchasing a house for investment, you’d in all probability meet stricter terms. Since the homes are cheap, we advise our clients to pay cash,” he says.
