    The United States is getting creative in its methods for tracking down international criminals who launder money.
    The U.S. Treasury Department will now require all title insurance companies to report the identities
    of people who purchase high-end real estate in Miami and Manhattan and pay in cash. On Wednesday,
    the Treasury said that they have reason to believe international criminals are using fake
    companies to hide their identity as they use laundered money to buy expensive real estate.
    The government fears that corrupt international leaders and big-time drug lords are using American real estate
    as a way of hiding illegally acquired cash.

    If you ever went into the kitchen of your favorite Chinese place you would never eat Chinese again

    For purposes of this announcement 'Cash' means purchasing the home without a mortgage. It does not mean a briefcase or duffle bag stuffed with $100's.

    I live in a nice neighborhood that is becoming increasingly Korean, they all pay cash. It's good for home values but shuts out traditional sales. Then they buy more and more properties. It's educational tourism.

    The state is starting to look into it.
    A lot of homes are bought collectively and 8+ kids live there with a rotating grandma supervising. It's a good school district.

    City of Seattle is starting to look into it as well. They will pay cash way over asking and are totally fucking up the market for normal home buyers because people are starting to sell with the expectations of selling cash above market and turning down traditional offers

    However, with corruption rampant there are those above the law.

    Nothing new under the sun, sadly Dawg.

    We live in an oligarchy.
