"These five countries accounted for approximately 53 per cent of transactions, with Canada and China the fastest growing sources over the years," the report said.
Among the reported destination states for buyers from India, the top states were California, Tennessee, Connecticut and New Jersey.
According to information from realtor.com as of March 2013, the five markets of greatest interest to potential Indian buyers are Los Angeles, Orlando, Chicago, Dallas, and Houston.
