Florida Realtors Markets the Sunshine State to the World

More buyers from around the globe purchase real estate in Florida than in any other U.S. state. That's why we're dedicated to building international ties.

When you realize that international buyers purchase property in Florida more than in any other state — you start to understand why Florida Realtors works to help build real estate relationships all over the globe.

Moreover, NAR's 2019 Profile of International Residential Real Estate Activity survey found that:

  • $16 Billion: Dollar volume of Florida’s existing homes purchased by foreign buyers during August 2018–July 2019, which is 12% of the dollar volume of Florida’s existing home sales (30% decrease from $22.9 billion during the prior 12-month period)

  • 36,400: Number of existing homes purchased in Florida by foreign buyers, which is 9% of existing-home sales (30% decrease from 52,000 during the prior 12-month period)

  • 71%: Share of foreign buyers whose primary residence is abroad (Type A)

We've worked extensively to reach "Memorandum of Understandings" with real estate organizations in a number of nations, including Canada, Turkey, Panama and Belgium, making it easier for Florida real estate agents to conduct transactions with buyers from those regions. And we're continually reaching out around the globe to make these types of connections.
