As of Oct. 2016, Canada surpassed long time leader, Colombia, to become the top international country searching for real estate in South Florida through the Miami Association of Realtors’ search portal, http://www.Miamire.com, according to MIAMI Association of REALTORS. Colombia had previously led MIAMI’s rankings for 10 consecutive months.


Canadian consumers buy the fourth-most South Florida real estate among all foreign countries. The North American nation accounted for 7 percent of all South Florida international sales last year, behind Venezuela (13 percent), Brazil (12 percent), Argentina and Colombia (10 percent), according to the 2015 Profile of International Home Buyers in MIAMI Association of Realtors Business Areas.

Canadians spend big

Among all international buyers, Canadians spend the most on South Florida real estate. About 86 percent of Canadian buyers paid all-cash for South Florida real estate in 2015.

South Florida’s tropical climate is a top draw for Canadians. With an average temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit, Miami is the only major “subtropical” city in the continental U.S. In comparison, the average annual temperature in Canada’s capital of Ottawa is 51.62 degrees.

The disparity in weather is one reason many retired Canadians purchase second homes in South Florida. Before the winter arrives in Canada, these “snowbirds” relocate to their Miami and Fort Lauderdale homes and live up to six months here. More than a million Canadians over 55 years old have adopted the “snowbird” lifestyle, spending the winter months in Florida.

“Miami’s tropical weather, resort lifestyle and world-class shopping have long attracted Canadian home buyers,” said Christopher Zoller, the 2017 MIAMI chairman of the board.“With temperatures dropping up north, more Canadian home buyers are purchasing real estate in South Florida.”

He added: “It’s not just Canada. Consumers in states throughout the Northeast are also interested. Our latest data again shows New York as the top U.S. state searching Miami real estate.”

New York leads all states in Miami real estate searches

For the sixth consecutive month, New York registered the most domestic Miami web searches.

Miami’s growth as a world-class global city also attracted significant homebuyer interest from Texas, Georgia and California.

Miami has ranked No. 1 in 10 of the last 11 months. South Florida ranked as a top-five market for consumers in eight of the world’s ten-largest regions in October 2016.

South Florida finished as the Caribbean’s most-searched market. While in North America it ranked fifth behind (1) New York-Newark-Jersey City, (2) Chicago-Naperville-Elgin, (3) Dallas-Fort Worth- Arlington, and (4)Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington


#Portugal, #Colombia top list of #bestplaces overseas to #buy #realestate in 2017

#Portugal, #Colombia top list of #bestplaces overseas to #buy #realestate in 2017

Cali, Colombia, ranked third on a list of the best foreign places to buy real estate this year.

A ranking of the nine best foreign places to buy real estate in 2017 put Portugal and Colombia at the top of the list.

Panama-based publisher Live and Invest Overseas also included locations in Brazil, Cape Verde, Mexico and the Dominican Republic in its list of the nine best places overseas for real estate investment this year.

Here are brief excerpts from the list:

Algarve, Portugal (#1): Properties in the southernmost region of Portugal rank among “Europe’s best bargains …  Long term, property in the Algarve [area] will hold its value thanks to restrictions on coastal construction.”


Lisbon, Portugal (#2): Compared with such West European cities as Paris, London, Dublin, Madrid and Rome, “Lisbon offers generally better weather, better property prices and a lower cost of living.”


Cali, Colombia (#3): A real estate boom like the one that happened in Medellin is likely to unfold in Cali.  “Cali is Medellin 10 years ago. Property values are an absolute global bargain. The rental demand is expanding … as is the city’s middle class.”


Bogota, Colombia (#4): The city is Colombia’s leading tourism destination, “and international travel to Bogota is increasing.” At the same time, “neighborhoods are being gentrified and the local middle class is expanding quickly.”


Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic (#5): This town on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic offers relatively inexpensive Caribbean real estate: “It’s a bargain compared with the rest of the region … Las Terrenas is more accessible than ever, and numbers of both international and domestic tourists are growing, meaning expanding rental demand.”


Playa del Carmen, Mexico (#6): This market is deep enough to find a real estate buyer when it comes time to sell: “Playa is the fastest-growing city in Latin America and enjoys an active resale market.” Playa del Carmen is “another market we like for its strong and growing rental demand, thanks to greater than ever numbers of both foreign and domestic tourists.”

Cocle, Panama (#7): This province in the agricultural heartland of Panama is ripe with opportunity for food-focused investors: “We targeted this region for turnkey agricultural investment opportunities four years ago and have yet to identify another place in the world with as much to offer in this regard.”


Ceara, Brazil (#8): This region on rhe northeast coast of Brazil  has become a hub of Brazilian tourism, with more than 60 million domestic visitors a year. Ceara has been “targeted for investment in improved infrastructure, including the expansion of the state highway and a new international airport.” Ceara also has monetary appeal: “Like most markets on our real estate investment wish list for 2017, this one is made more attractive by a weak currency.”


Cape Verde (#9): A growing tourist destination, Cape Verde has “some of the best beaches in the world.” International property developers and hotel operators are drawn by the market’s increasing rental demand. For individuals, “the real estate units being sold that make the most sense for investment are part of hotel-managed resort communities … versus single-family residences or condo units.”

Where To Find The Best-Value New Condos In South America

Did you ever visit a new place and get a good feeling about it right off the bat?


I did, when I recently explored Sabaneta, a municipality just a few miles south of Medellín, Colombia. And in addition to the good feeling, I found the best new-condo deals I know of on the continent…and I’ve investigated property all around South America, from Uruguay to Bolivia to Chile.

As the nearby city of  Medellin grows, construction land in popular neighborhoods is harder to find. So, many builders are turning their attention to Sabaneta—a close-by location, attractive to homebuyers, with the land and infrastructure to support new development.

In Sabaneta, you’ll find a year-round warm climate and the opportunity to live a comfortable life—with affordable healthcare—for a fraction of the cost back home. You’ll also find plenty of well-stocked grocery markets, restaurants, and two shopping malls with movie theaters. And Sabaneta is connected to Medellín, and the rest of the metropolitan area, by a modern above-ground metro train.

Sabaneta is a small municipality of about six-square miles with a population of 51,000. Once an agricultural area, some of the nearby farms go back more than 250 years. Today, Sabaneta is a place where you’ll find remnants from times past within blocks of modern development.

In the principal plaza, you’ll find brick planters with gray stone accents, a variety of trees, and a simple three-tiered fountain. At the head of the plaza stands a white church with a steeple. On the side, you’ll see colorful market stalls and sidewalk cafés. On weekends, people from Medellín visit Sabaneta’s plaza area to relax and connect with the area’s heritage.

You can find good real estate deals…even near this picturesque part of town. A two-bedroom, two-bathroom, third-story condo, just two blocks from the plaza, is for sale. Inside, you’ll find white tile floors and a kitchenette with a granite countertop. The list price is $51,605.

Just beyond the cozy tree-lined streets near the plaza, you’ll see residential towers against the skyline. Some stand 20-stories tall, many completed, and others in various stages of construction.

What can your money buy in this area of new development? A new, two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit with a balcony, in a building with a community gym and swimming pool, is listed for $62,900. Inside you’ll find tile floors in the living area and bathroom, laminate flooring in the bedrooms, and modern fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms. Plus, it comes with a garage space.

On the higher end, you can get a new, three-bedroom, three-bathroom luxury condo that includes sections of floor-to-ceiling glass, a balcony, and a master suite with a walk-in closet. All this, and two garage spaces, will cost you $130,740. And the building amenities here include an infinity-edge pool, gym, squash court, and social area.

Often when I come upon a Latin American spot with so much going for it, I learn that prices have already gone up. I’m used to the familiar story: “You should have been here 10 years ago, it was a bargain, then.” But not this time.

So, if you’re among those considering the Medellín area as a retirement destination, check out Sabaneta.

Then, in 2026, you’ll likely be the one telling newcomers, “You should have been here 10 years ago.”
