dc.description.abstract On the eve of the fifty-year anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, change finally appears to be on the horizon for Cuba. In February 2008, Raul Castro succeeded his older brother Fidel as President of the Republic of Cuba. In the United States, a newly elected President and a Congress presumably controlled by the Democratic Party will assume power in 2009. These political developments bring with them the potential for change in U.S. - Cuba relations. Opportunities are available even today for U.S. investment in the Cuban real estate market. This thesis identifies why now is the right time for Americans to move forward with their investment plans. It explains how real estate transactions are currently being conducted on the island and the challenges of investing in Cuban real estate according to Cubans and foreign investors. Presented as well are strategies for overcoming these hurdles. en_US
