South Florida has 115 of Florida’s hottest 500 zip codes based on supply and demand, according to Realtor.com data released exclusively last month at the 21st annual MIAMI Association of REALTORS® International Real Estate Congress. In October 2015, the aforementioned Miami-Broward- Palm Beach-Martin zip codes received eight times as many views on Realtor.com than the average zip code.

International consumers comprised a majority of those web views as the South Florida real estate market leads all U.S. metro areas in international web traffic on Realtor.com.

“Miami is setting the standard for international web traffic,” Realtor.com Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke said during the 2015 MIAMI Congress, which hosted more than 400 foreign and domestic real estate professionals at events in Miami and San Diego.

Two generations — millennials and boomers — are spearheading the interest in South Florida properties, Smoke said. Millennials, the generation of Americans between the ages of 25-34, are the largest and most diverse generation in the U.S. population. Boomers are the generation of Americans born after World War II and are between the ages of 50-64.

For millennials, the top zip codes in Miami-Dade County are: Miami Springs (33166), Brickell (33129), Coral Way (33145) and downtown Miami (33132), according to Realtor.com data. Boomers, meanwhile, favor the northern part of South Florida. The top zip codes for Boomers are: West Palm Beach (33417), Hobe Sound (33455), Stuart (34996), Jensen Beach (34957) and Boynton Beach (33437).

South Florida is Top U.S. Destination for International Home Buyers

The Miami/Fort Lauderdale/West Palm Beach market is far and away the top U.S. metro for international traffic on Realtor.com. South Florida posted an international traffic index of 3,395, significantly higher than the 2,820 index from second-place Honolulu.

A look at the top-10 U.S. Metros for International Traffic, according to Realtor.com:

  1. Miami-Fort-Lauderdale-West Palm Beach

  2. Urban Honolulu

  3. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim

  4. Bellingham, Wash.

  5. Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford

  6. Anchorage

  7. Kahului-Wailuku-Lahaina, Hawaii

  8. Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island, Fla.
