Canada is the most-active country searching Miami real estate, according to new data from the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI). Canada registered the most South Florida property searches among all countries on MIAMI’s portal, www.Miamire.com, in January 2017.

It’s the second time Canada has posted the most searches (the first occurred in October) since MIAMI began tabulating the monthly rankings in May 2013. Brazil and Colombia finished second and third, respectively. Russia, which led the rankings in November and December, fell to No. 29. Turkey — a global European-Asian hub connected to Miami via nonstop Turkish Airlines flights — entered the Top-10 for the first time (No. 7.)

“Canadians love South Florida real estate and it’s not just because of our warm weather,” said Christopher Zoller, the 2017 MIAMI chairman of the board. “Yachting, boating, brand-name shopping and incredible beaches lead Canadians to purchase primary or secondary homes in South Florida.”
