Top Two Florida Destinations for International Home Buyers

The top two destinations for foreign buyers this year … in Florida… are:   

1) Miami and  Miami Beach … as well as 

2) Fort Lauderdale

Ranked TOP 2  in 2011,  we expect them to be TOP 2 again  in 2012.     

Each are resort destinations …  home to jet-setting, bikini-clad sun-worshippers  …   with 1 BIG PLUS:  Both offer easy access  internationally  (to and from the Miami  and Fort Lauderdale airports) …  with the obligatory dining,  nightlife… shopping … glistening waters and sandy beaches .

NAR (National Association of Realtors) confirms that 30% of all purchases by foreign buyers in 2011 were in the Miami, Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale areas (Miami-Dade and Broward Counties).

Following just behind those two areas , and ranked #3,  was:

3) Central Florida  –  which includes the towns of  Orlando and Kissimmee …  home to Disney World … Epcot  … and Universal Studios… as well as the University of Central Florida (UCF) which is one of the largest universitites in the U.S.       14% of all purchases by foreign buyers  in Florida  in 2011 were in Central Florida..
