We ❤️ Sunny South Florida 🌴

Did you know that Canada is the number one source of foreign buyers purchasing in the US? That’s right. In 2021 alone, Canadians purchased $5.5 billion in properties in the US and guess what state was themost popular destination for Canadians? You guessed it! Florida represented 24% of all purchases made by Canadians followed by California 11%, Texas 8%, Arizona 7%, New York 4% and North Carolina 4%. Vacation homes represented 44% of these purchases and Canadians purchased 25% of all foreign purchases in Florida last year. Nationally, the average selling price for all foreign based purchases was $485k USD and 21% of all foreign Sellers were Canadian while 69% of Canadians paid cash (the highest percentage of all foreign Buyers) Wow, these are some stats!

I have a personal connection to South Florida because my family has owned real estate there since I was a young girl. Needless to say, I know South Florida and can advise on the best areas for you to invest in whether your motives are purely economical as an investor or like most of us, you and your family want to enjoy the year round warm temperatures and tropical lifestyle.

Did you know that I am designated as a Certified International Property Specialist (C.I.P.S.) with the National Association of Realtors (NAR) ? With this designation along with being a Sotheby’s International Really affiliate, I can help you learn the ins and outs of buying in Florida as a Canadian in addition to providing you with the opportunity to work with one of my most esteemed and trusted colleagues.

Everyone knows someone who either owns a condo or home in Florida or has talked about owning a vacation home there. From now on whether it’s for yourself or for someone you know, I invite you to think of me as your Florida real estate connection.

For specific info on the Miami/Miami Beach/Coral Gables/ Surfside/Bal Harbour/ Aventura/Hallandale/Hollywood/Dania Beach/Fort Lauderdale/Boca Raton/Pompano and Palm Beach markets please reach out to me. In the meantime, here’s a recent market report on what’s happening in the area.

Remember, Sotheby’s has offices throughout the entire state, the entire nation and the entire world! That’s 1000 offices in 75 countries! I’m happy to offer you the same great service and expertise on your international purchase or sale as I’ve done for you here. Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions that come to mind!

In the meantime, II hope you enjoy the last few days of our beautiful Ontario summer and instead of dreading winter, why not plan a trip to peruse some properties in Florida? You’ll never be cold again 🙂
