Take a guess, what European country has the greatest presence in Boston in terms of real estate purchases? Surprising as it may be, the top two are Lithuania and Greece! Trulia.com provided these statistics to determine where such investors are looking to buy in the United States. For the whole European continent, Boston came in as the 29th most popular city when searching for a home if you hail from across the pond in Europe. This number is quite favorable if you think about the known attractions that would tempt foreign buyers. Let's weigh up our Duck Tours compared to Orlandos (which came in 5th) Disney World, I wonder which is more world-renowned?
What this really means is that Boston real estate appeals to not just Bostonians. The diversity of styles of homes and the trendy, laid-back atmosphere of our walking city make it ideal for any European looking to relocate or to simply buy an investment or vacation property. So Lithuanians, Greeks, and the rest of the world, you are all invited!
