Canadians Doubled Spending on U.S. Real Estate in Last Year

August 9, 2017

The National Association of Realtors reports great news for sellers in South Florida: ‘œMore than one out of three Canadian buyers in the U.S. choose homes in subtropical Florida, with the majority of those snapping up homes around Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach’. Over the past year, Canadians have doubled the amount spent on real estate in the US ‘“ $19 billion to be exact and mainly on vacation homes and residential investment properties. Mansion Global tells us ‘œThey look to their southern neighbor for sunny, high-end vacation spots in places like Florida’. Some may be surprised to learn that ‘œEven with a large contingent of Latin American buyers in Florida, Canadians spent the most of any foreign nationals in the state’”around $3 billion in 2016’. ‘œCanada’s burning hot housing market, particularly in Toronto and Vancouver, has fueled purchases in the U.S., as baby boomers cash out on their long-time family homes in Canada and use the spoils to pick up amenity-rich second homes in the U.S.’.

What are the Canadians buying?
The typical buyers is looking for a low maintenance vacation spot, so it is no surprise most buyers are looking for a luxury condo in the beach area. ‘œA lot of those snowbirds want new developments. It’s their resort property,’ said Ms. Fox, who will soon launch sales in Canada for the new Four Season Private Residences Fort Lauderdale. ‘œThey want a valet, they want a concierge, they like maid service.’ ‘œNew developments in Boca Raton like Akoya Boca West, a condominium at the Boca West Country Club, have seen an influx of new high-end buyers from Canada, a spokeswoman for the development said’. In fact, Akoya already has over 20 Canadian owners which is helping sales with other Canada based households.

How are they buying?
‘œThe vast majority of Canadian buyers in the U.S., some 76%, pay for their homes in all cash, according to John Slivon, president of the realtors association in Palm Beach and Greater Fort Lauderdale’. The typical Canadian buyers have several million in assets and many are looking for luxury homes in the $1 million to $3 million dollar range, making Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami beach area homes very desirable.

Brazilian Buyers Return to South Florida

July 21, 2017

More than half of all Latin American millionaires are Brazilians which makes them a strong factor in the Miami luxury real estate market. ‘œAfter two bad years, the up-and-down Brazilian economy appears headed toward a gradual recovery, and many wealthy Brazilians think it’s a good time to protect their money and move some capital out of the country.’ Many buyers are purchasing second, third, or even fourth luxury homes as well as income-producing properties.

Historically, investing in South Florida has led to favorable returns and some Brazilians are even looking to make Miami their year round home. ‘œFor Brazilians, Argentinians, Mexicans, Colombians, and Venezuelans, Miami has become the defacto capital of Latin America in the United States. It’s bilingual and bicultural, a welcoming second home that is both cosmopolitan and fun. They understand Miami’s vibe, thanks to the generations of Cubans who began flocking to the city in the 1950s and ’60s.’

Brazilian buyers typically purchase the more expensive units as they really appreciate the high end finishes and craftsmanship. This goes not only for real estate and architecture, but also for fashion and luxury brands. With the growth of designers available at Bal Harbour Shops, The Design District, and Wynwood, Miami’s luxury fashion scene is on the rise as well.

Of course, the exchange rate is a key factor for Brazilian acquisitions. ‘œAs the value of the Brazilian real drops against the dollar, it prompts investors to shelter their money in dollar-dominated assets like South Florida real estate’ says developer Louis Birdman. The stabilization of their economy and political turmoil seem to be looking up; however, the crime in their country still prohibits them from having the luxury of driving the type of car or wearing the watches or jewelry they would like which makes South Florida that much more desirable.

Douglas Elliman CEO, Jay Parker tells us, ‘œMore and more Brazilians are looking to the United States and specifically Florida, not just for a second home, but for a full relocation’.

With over 40 years combined experience in the South Florida luxury real estate market, Douglas Elliman agents, Nicholas Malinosky and Randy Ely know that many luxury buyers come from the Brazil. If you are interested in more information about the luxury market, please contact Nick and Randy today.
