In the last year, 2 out of 3 Realtors in Florida has had at least one international home buyer according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
Canadian buyers top that list of home buyers from outside our borders. The value of the Canadian dollar to the US along with more affordable US home prices has made Florida homes very attractive to our northern neighbors.
Other buyers looking for US real estate deals are coming from Europe including the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Western Europe as well. Even to the south of us in Latin America, they are crossing the boarder to buy US properties.
Today, according to Collier County homeowner records there are over 3,329 Canadian owners in Naples — and this doesn’t cover all the Canadians who do not register their foreign addresses.
According to NAR statistics, most foreign buyers will use their US homes between 3 and 6 months, some much less, and believe purchasing in the United States is a better investment now than in their own countries.
At our offices in Naples, we’ve receive several inquiries a week from foreign buyers interested in listings they’ve seen online. Most are Canadians but we do get inquiries from everywhere including Norway, Sweden and Ireland.
