It has also sparked a renewed interest among Americans to buy foreign property.

So the foreigners can come in, while the Americans go out.

I guess the housing collapse here had very little to do with it. What can't Obama do? His mystic powers are amazing. "I command you to come to our country and buy land!" And lo, the hordes...they do gather...and come hither....and buy land.

Sure, why wouldn't they? They figure if they can't really afford the property and are threatened with losing it, there will be a bailout.
