ATX Bound: International Markets, Investors and Avoiding Mistakes
ABoR Global's International Insights' second installment is here and will update you on some of the top international markets moving to Central Texas, including Canada and India. Joining us is Samir Arora, President-Elect, National Association of REALTORS, India; and Sharon Schoenberg, Manager, Global Strategy & Relations, The Canadian Real Estate Association. Hear from a local international business and immigration expert on navigating the changing pathway to Austin with Laura Fowler, Managing Shareholder, The Fowler Law Firm.

There are many favorable changes to the tax law that most international investors are not utilizing. These changes to the tax laws at the federal, state, and local levels could benefit your clients. If you add immigration changes into the mix, let's say–it gets complicated. We'll discuss valuable deductions, investment strategies, and some of the most expensive mistakes international real estate investors make–and how you can be a resource to avoid them. Plus, keep informed on the latest changes in U.S. Immigration law and its increasing process challenges, and how it may be affecting your clients and their real estate investments.
