Share Article

The weak U.S. real estate market translates into strong opportunities for foreign buyers.

Since 1990, CWS Marketing Group has been working with the Department of the Treasury Seized and Forfeited Real Estate Auction Program. Under this contract, CWS is responsible for selling commercial and residential real estate throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Agencies served under this program include the IRS-Criminal Investigation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security. All proceeds from the sale of real property are deposited in the U.S. Treasury Asset Forfeiture Fund, created by Congress in 1992 in order to hold deposits of seized currency and revenues from the sale and remission of forfeited property. These funds help support continuing law enforcement efforts and provide restitution to crime victims. "Over the past two decades, CWS has been involved in the sale of thousands of real properties valued in excess of one billion dollars," comments Tim Minoughan CWS Project Director.
