Texas REALTORS® Meet with International Real Estate Investors in Cannes, France

Texas’ strong investment opportunities and friendly business environment has drawn attention both nationally and around the world. As REALTORS®, it is our duty to show international investors the wealth of opportunities that exist within our great state. At MIPIM, we had the responsibility of promoting Texas as a top place to live, work and do business to the world’s leading investors,” said Tray Bates, chairman of Texas REALTORS®. “Texas has a strong economic climate and is the top creator of jobs in the nation. Investors from across the world are choosing our diverse markets due to the quality of life and business friendly atmosphere we have to offer.”

At the four-day MIPIM Conference, the association and members from several Texas markets showcased Texas real estate opportunities to 28,000 attendees and investors from more than 100 countries. This global business development by Texas REALTORS® resulted in a potential of up to $3 billion in investments returning to Texas. Such investments will lead to commercial and residential real estate and limitless growth opportunities for Texas.

Bates concluded, “National and foreign investors have taken notice of the opportunities available within our state. As Texas continues to lead the nation in relocation activity and job growth, we expect to see international investment continue to rise in the coming future.”
