A wise man once said “Put your money where Buffett’s mouth is”

March 6, 2012Article by Ray Withers

An octogenarian worth in excess of $39 billion, The “Sage of Omaha” must have done something right.

And when one of the world’s most successful stock market investors says that he would buy “a couple of hundred thousand” family homes in the US over shares because the market looks ripe for recovery – one would be wise to listen.

Many people have invested successfully by following Buffett’s innate skill in sniffing out the best opportunities but it’s not just the business magnate from Nebraska who has tipped the US are THE place to invest in 2012. Other well respected experts such as asset managers at Barclays Wealth, investment analysts Hargreaves Lansdown and our very own team here at Property Frontiers believe that the US has reached a turning point.

As reported in the Sunday Times last week, US property prices have fallen some 33% since their peak in April 2006, three times more than in Britain, however with the National Association of Realtors (NA) reporting a 4.3% increase in the sale of existing homes in January, there is cause for optimism of market recovery.

A rise in home sales coupled with an upturn in the US economy (Q4 2011 GDP growth was revised up from 2.8% to 3% last week) makes this the perfect time to enter the US property market. And whilst not everyone can buy thousands of homes Buffett style, there is a new way to tap into this lucrative market.

The new and exclusive US Property Bond from Property Frontiers uses the same trustees that administer our hugely successful bamboo bond, allowing investors to benefit from double digit yields available in the US property market without the risk or hassle of managing individual buy-to-let properties.

The innovative bond also allows you to benefit directly from buying at the lowest possible price, the right type of property and in the right locations, utilising experts on the ground who are continually assessing the best proeprties to invest in during the term of the investment.

With over $500,000 already raised in less than 2 weeks, response has been overwhelming. Mainly driven, no doubt, by the high yields and the security offered by the bond structure.

We will be holding a seminar tomorrow evening at the Hilton Park Lane in London to explain how it works and why we believe this is one of the easiest ways to capitalise on the market so CLICK HERE TO JOIN US, you never know, the next “Sage of Omaha” might emerge!!
