The Best Bets for International Investors in the U.S.A.
Since the Netherlands helped finance the Louisiana Purchase in Jefferson’s time as president, we have had a strong relationship with them that included they're investing in our lands. This has proved beneficial to both parties.
Now the trend to invest in other countries has grown tremendously, and the rules and regulations have grown too. There are approximately ten states that don’t permit foreign ownership of land, but that leaves about 40 that not only allow it, but encourage it. There are many that get a knot in the pit of their stomach when American land is sold to other countries. There are also those who believe these investments will save our economy.
Creating jobs is the best method for buying land in the United States. Along with a windfall in capital gains, you can essentially purchase your citizenship. You have to invest in a company that guarantees ten full-time jobs for United States workers and then you can bring your wife and children and all apply for a green card. You must invest $1,000,000, or at least $500,000 in an area with low employment.
