The Americas And International Real Estate
Mexico, Brazil, Bahamas, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Panama.
For my CIPS designation in the Americas and International Real Estate, we focused heavily on International Market Dynamics including Economic Growth, Trade Agreements, Peaceful Borders, Urbanization, and Environmental Issues. Also, we studied Cultural Influences such as High and Low Context Cultures, Business Culture, and Family Ties.
One of the countries that showcased a primary focus was Mexico, where we outlined the Government and Legal Systems in Mexico, the Foreign Ownership of Real Estate, Commercial Real Estate in Mexico, and Rental Properties. As well as Business and Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax on Real Estate in Mexico, and Financing.
Also, we took a look at Canada and reviewed our Canadian Government and Legal System, the Foreign Ownership of Real Estate in Canada, and Mortgage Financing.
Then, we proceeded to study Brazil, and their Government and Legal System. Most importantly, we focused heavily on the Olympics Effect as well as President Bolsonaro’s New Era of Politics. We took a look at the future of the economy, as well as Foreign Ownership of Real Estate in Brazil. We touched on Commercial, Residential, and Rental Properties as well as the Transaction Process in Brazil.
Finally, we also focused on the Bahamas, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Panama.
