The property market in the US is showing signs of improvement over this year.
Just over half of US metropolitan areas saw values rise year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2010, according to reports in Overseas Property Professional (OPP).
Expatriates keen to snap up a property before prices climb even higher should be aware that there are a number of things to consider when relocating abroad.
International medical insurance is one such item to look into when heading overseas.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) told OPP that sales of existing homes in the states jumped by 15.4 per cent in the final three months of last year.
Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR, commented: "An improving housing market and job growth will go hand in hand. The housing recovery will mean faster job growth."
