This below data from RealtyTrac is interesting. Nowadays it is "cheaper" to buy an house in the US as compared to some HOT places in the Malaysia. Coincidentally the top US foreclosure cities have HOT weather. Looks like foreclosure phenomenon in the US is starting to rise again.

1. Las Vegas
2. Chicago
3. Los Angeles
4. Phoenix
5. Miami

    @Micheal,
    To do this kind of investment, certainly need someone in the US to manage your property. So far , have not heard any property guru prescribing this type of investment.

    @ChampDog,
    Yup they are afraid that buying a house will actually erode their networth as house prices is still dropping across US states.
