Florida Tops List of International Buyer’s Destination!

Posted on May 20, 2014

25% of all international buyers in the USA purchase in Florida!

In a recent article about international buyers, published in the Naples
REALTOR magazine, several statistics were shared that I found
interesting. Did you know that Florida accounts for nearly 25% of all
international sales in the USA? Miami heads the list of destinations,
with 21% of the 25%, but the Naples-Marco Island real estate market remains strong
at 6.3% of the closed sales in the last 12 months. Canadians, for many
reasons select Florida, and Naples is their #1 destination with 13% of
Canadians purchasing in Collier County. So far year-to-date 2014
Canadians make up over 60% of our non-domestic closings followed by
Germany at 12% and the U.K. at 8%.  International buyers are playing a
more important role in our local real estate market and they are drawn
here for a myriad of reasons. Most state the weather of course, but
other factors include our culture: arts, entertainment and fine dining;
as well as the value of housing.



Coldwell Banker is the most recognized
real estate company in the world. We have offices in 51 countries and
territories. Given the impact of our presence on the world stage, it
makes perfect sense that many of these international buyers trust the
name they are most familiar with when doing business. Call us today and
let us tell you what we are doing to reach out to our international
friends and colleagues. I think you will also be impressed to know that our websites can be
translated into 19 languages!  239-370-0574
