  • Urgent Legal Alert from Florida REALTORS General Counsel

    Mar 06, 2018
    Recently, Florida Realtors became aware of several lawsuits filed against real estate brokers in Miami Dade and Broward counties concerning allegations of discriminatory advertising—a violation of fair housing laws. Specifically, brokers are being sued for discriminating against tenants with Section 8 vouchers. These violations, however, pertain to local ordinances, not the Federal Fair Housing Act. Under these local ordinances, landlords and Realtors are precluded from discriminating against tenants with Section 8 vouchers, as this falls under the protected class "source of income."

Colombia is Top Foreign Country Searching South Florida Real Estate Miami is Most-Searched U.S. Market by International Consumers

by | Jul 06, 2016

Print Version

Colombia continues to lead all foreign countries searching for South Florida real estate, according to new data from the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI). The South American nation finished as the top international country using MIAMI's search portal, www.Miamire.com, in April 2016. Colombia has now led the rankings for five consecutive months.

The new MIAMI rankings show surging interest from Israel and India, and a new domestic leader. Georgia registered the most searches of Miami real estate among U.S. states. South Florida is the No. 1 U.S. market for international consumers in April 2016, according to Realtor.com.

"South Florida is known around the world for embracing all cultures," said Mark Sadek, the 2016 MIAMI Chairman of the Board. "Foreign-born residents love Miami. Their passion is visible in our monthly property searches and in Realtor.com global searches, which continue to show South Florida as the most-searched U.S. market by international consumers."

Colombia: A Top Market for South Florida Real Estate
Colombian home buyers tied with Argentinians in purchasing the third-most Miami real estate among foreign countries, according to the 2015 Profile of International Home Buyers in Miami Association of Realtors Business Areas. Colombia registered 10 percent of all foreign South Florida transactions, according to the survey conducted by MIAMI and the National Association of REALTORS. Only Venezuelan (13 percent) and Brazilian (12 percent) buyers purchased more.

Colombians moving to South Florida are often upper-middle-class families who want to enjoy their prosperity earned in their homeland as professionals and entrepreneurs. Colombians spend the second-most on South Florida property among foreign buyers. The $516,000 average purchase price of Colombians tied with Argentina and only trailed Brazil ($766,000), according to the 2015 survey.

Surging Interest from Israel, India
Israel (population: 8.06 million) posted the fourth-most searches of South Florida real estate in April. It was the country's highest finish since it took fourth in September 2015. India (population: 1.25 billion) finished sixth for the second consecutive month.
