There is also a need for affordable homes and home owner friendly mortgage
companies. I spoke to many residents and business owners that are from the UK,
they expressed an interest of having a US based company that can work the real

The market is changing and the new trend that has been introduced to the US real
estate is solar efficient products. This is a trend that started overseas and used
more commonly in Europe and certain areas of the Middle East. Many European
countries use solar panels on the commercial real estate and are steadily used on
residential real estate as well. The government implemented the idea of going
green and using solar panels to lower the use of electricity, creating natural solar
energy that converts into electricity, reducing the manpower electricity and
voltage use. It also helps lower the overall cost of bills. This method of solar panel
was introduced a few years ago to the US, but it was in the past 2 years that the
demand for solar efficiency took place. There are development companies that are
using this method to build homes with solar efficient concept, which the federal
government funds if it is within their guidelines and standards.
There are companies that sell solar efficient products that invest in development
projects that would use their products in the building of the properties. Other
companies would let consumers rent their solar panels and give them a discount
upon installation, homeowners can benefit from this type of deal.
This phenomenon is going global, other countries in the eastern board such as
China in the Asian continent is taking the opportunity to use solar panels in the
residential and commercial spaces.
