Global financial market volatility is boosting  investment in U.S. properties, encouraging many to focus on capital preservation and asset stability rather than yield. Rather than the flashy sales often reported, most international acquisitions are smaller assets  purchased through funds and domestic intermediaries. Yet the totals are impressive at more than $90 billion of commercial real estate purchases in 2015, accounting for  17 percent of the market volume. Due to the strength of the U.S. dollar, international buyers comprised 11 percent of all U.S. properties in the first half of 2016, according to Marcus & Millichap.
