Northwest ArVorw* TIMES, Men., April «, 1M» FAVCTTIVILLt. ARKANSAS Goal Is $1 Billion By 1970 Foreign Based Group Buys U.S. Real Estate By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Bulneu Anilynt NEW YORK (AP) - Just a little more than two years old, the foreign-based U.S. Investment Fund now controls more than $250 million of American real estate. Its goal is to own $1 billion worth by this time next year. All money for its investments comes from abroad, for the fund sells only to foreigners. When it comes to buying, it buys nothing but American real estate. economy, he was joined by Rafael Navarro. a pre Castro Cuban diplomat, anc'l today they are partners in Gramco Ltd., the fund's manager. As their fledgling enterprise sold its story to Latin Americans and then to Europeans, other associates were beginning to lend assistance, among them several former associates of President John Kennedy.

This puts a pleasant type o pressure on Amprop, formerly American Properties Manage ment. a Miafi-based subsidiary. Amprop finds and manages property for the fund, and in so doing is modernizing some ancient methods. Last week Amprop sent a caravan of experts to Cincinnati-"a city on the move." as one member said--where they spent three days with building owners and real estate executives. IN SEARCH OF BUYS Similar trips are planned to weeks. Sucli fast tction in business where deals are now rtously slow, Bkrish believes makes many owners willing ·sellers. The cash (low that inakes quick deals possible, in fact necessary, results as much from the eagerness of foreigners to own a piece of America as much as from the diligence of salesmen. In the past two years, for ex- imple. foreign investors also have poured money into the American stock market. The net inflow for 1968 was a dramatic 1.9 Billion. REAL ESTATE Barish and Navarro believe, however, that the real estate market is a bigger attraction, 'an almost foolproof hedge against inflation." In addition, they say, it offers a greater yield than banks and involves less risk than stocks. Whatever the reason, investor cash from places such as Bel rut, Hong Kong and Munich i! now pouring into the fund at such a rate that Barish forecasts a $300 million contribution to the U.S. balance of payments by the spring of 1970. Meanwhile, the fund itself, re fleeting the value of real estate holdings, appreciates at the rate of more than one per cent a month. t«fuM«t Land KEYWEST.rU.
