Aloha and welcome to one of the nation’s premiere tax and wealth transfer conferences. Practitioners interested in keeping abreast of the latest developments in tax and wealth transfer education are certain to welcome the opportunity to participate in the 56th Annual Hawaii Tax Institute sponsored by the Hawaii Tax Institute Foundation and Chaminade University of Honolulu. This year’s program provides unparalleled education and professional development opportunities delivered by a diverse and distinguished faculty of recognized tax and wealth transfer authorities with a positive approach to current and practical subjects. While the Institute is designed primarily to serve as a forum where tax and wealth transfer oriented people may freely exchange ideas on practical problems, professional status is not a prerequisite for registration. This program is designed for attorneys, accountants, financial planners, planned giving professionals, bank and trust administrators, insurance agents, elder law specialists, non-profit administrators, wealth management professionals, enrolled agents, educators, and others who would benefit from high quality continuing education. The highest level of learning has been the hallmark of prior Institutes and we shall endeavor to again maintain this standard.

19. July 2017 · Comments Off on Record Breaking Foreign Investment in U.S. Real Estate · Categories: Hawaii Real Estate, International Real Estate, News & Events, Oahu Luxury Real Estate

Foreign investment in U.S. real estate has surged to a new high, with property expenditures skyrocketing 49 percent over the past year, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2017 Profile of International Activity in U.S. Residential Real Estate.


Nationally, China buyers continued to hold the highest sales dollar volume for the fourth straight year. However, Canadian buyers’ investments in U.S. properties saw a significant uptick. Transactions from Canadians totaled $19 billion, which is a new high for Canadian buyers in the U.S.

Looking at the luxury real estate market here on Oahu, Japan continues to dominate the foreign investment field, accounting for 81% of foreign investment in the $1 Million to $2 Million price range and 65% percent of the $2 million plus purchases through 5/30/17.

Oahu Luxury Foreign Investment

National Association of REALTORS® Chief Economist Lawrence Yun says he believes the expanding U.S. and global economies will keep foreign demand high for American properties. The main challenges, however, will remain the shortage of homes for sale in the U.S. and economic and political headwinds that could curb sales activity to foreign buyers in the U.S.

With nine (9) offices in Japan and a full time Japanese sales force dedicated to Hawaii sales, List Sotheby’s International Realty is uniquely positioned to provide extensive reach into the Japanese market. Newer offices in Singapore, The Phillipines and Hong Kong later this year continue to expand our reach in the Asia Pacific.
