EB-5 Extended again – May 2017

This week, Congress extended the EB-5 investor visa program in its current form through September 30, 2017, as part of the new government budget deal. After about two years of re-enacting the program as-is, sources say there are now genuine efforts afoot to reform it sooner than later. Minimum investment amounts, stricter oversight and reclassification of targeted employment areas (TEAs) are on the debate agenda. Longstanding visa-processing inefficiencies within the EB-5 program also need attention. As the reform is being discussed, the industry is also looking at the capability of the EB-5 program to fund infrastructure development. There is a “genuine desire to get reform done,” says Michael Halloran, CEO of NES Financial, a Silicon Valley-based fintech company that has transacted in the EB-5 space since 2010. “Most likely, there will be an increase to the minimum [investment amount].” Should legislators not agree on changes to the program, it’s possible…

Texas lawmakers pass bill allowing police to ask about immigration status

AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Legislature on Wednesday passed a ban on so-called “sanctuary cities” that allows police officers to ask about a person’s immigration status and threatens sheriffs and police chiefs with jail time if they don’t work with federal authorities. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has pledged to sign the bill into law, which could now come quickly. The GOP-led Senate passed the bill Wednesday despite objections from Democrats, who call the bill a “show-me-your-papers” measure that will be used to discriminate against Latinos. The term “sanctuary cities” has no legal definition, but Republicans want local police to help federal immigration agents crack down on criminal suspects in the U.S. illegally. The bill allows the state to withhold funding from local governments for acting as sanctuary cities. Republicans have a strong majority in the Legislature and shoved aside Democratic objections to push the bill, even as President Trump’s efforts…

Russian buyers suddenly warm to Miami real estate in a big way

Russian buyers have long been active in Miami real estate, but now they appear to be more interested than anyone else. Searches originating from Russia topped the list of international interest in miamire.com, the official website of the Miami Association of Realtors, in November 2016. This is the first time Russia has led other countries in Miami interest since the association began tracking web clicks in 2013. Brazil topped the list in November 2015, with Venezuela, Argentina and Columbia following. Russia came in fifth. A much stronger dollar may be a factor in pushing South Americans down the list, but a much stronger relationship between Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, and President Donald Trump may also be bringing in more Russian interest. Following Trump’s victory in November, Russian interest in the U.S. luxury real estate market jumped 35 percent, according to Knight Frank, a global real estate consultancy. Russian interest in…

UCF Forecast: Housing Starts Will Help Fuel Strong Growth of Florida Economy

Florida’s economy will grow faster than the national economy over the next three years, fueled in part by an increasing population that will propel construction jobs to experience the highest growth of any employment sector, according to the latest forecast from UCF economist Sean Snaith. “The fundamental underpinnings of the housing market in Florida continue to improve,” Snaith wrote in the Florida & Metro Forecast, 2016-2019, citing strong job growth and increasing population trends in Florida. Florida’s economy, as measured by Real Gross State Product, will expand at an average 2.9 percent a year through 2019, outpacing projections for the national economy. Housing starts, which flattened in 2014, will increase to nearly 151,000 in 2019, a substantial jump over the 117,000 forecast for this year. Florida’s housing market continues to improve, but shrinking inventory and a backlog of housing starts are pushing single-family home prices up. The February 2016 year-over-year…
