    I've heard there is a lot of stock for sale at the moment :D:rolleyes:

    Sorry I couldn't resist... I believe there are a few here that have discussed it. A search might yield their names (can't recall)

    Paul S,.
    Dymphna Boholt is currently promoting real estate investing in the US. You may get some ideas.
    This is not a recommendation as I have only read the internet stuff.

    There is no doubt that it's a good time to buy in the US
    because of the low value of the US$ as well as the large number of defaults
    which put downwards pressure on prices.

    However, I don't like your chances of buying anything if you are not cashed up. As a non US resident getting finance at a decent interest rate won't be easy.

    Cheers
