Several of our Pinellas International Council members attended this trade show at the end of May in Toronto. There is a possibility that our PRO Association will have a booth at this show next year. Our members that attended this show were able to see firsthand what Realtor®Quest had to offer. This show is one of the largest real estate trade shows in Canada. It offers Realtors the ability to interact with parliament and senior government leaders, network with other Realtors from around the world and learn about new technologies solutions as well as the ability to development lasting relationships with our friends in Canada.

Please join us for our first CIPS course this year on April 3rd. Register now before it’s too late. It’s just next week! 

Florida accounted for the largest share at 22 percent of total U.S. residential home sales to international clients, which the National Association of REALTORS® estimated at $102.6 Billion. Florida attracted buyers from Latin America, Europe, and Canada who tend to purchase properties in warm climates for vacation purposes. St Petersburg-Tampa-Clearwater is in the top 10 markets in the USA for International BUYERS.

Consider these facts:

  • $19.4 Billion in sales to international buyers for the year ending 6/16
  • 19% of Florida’s market (volume) was to international buyers
    • 47,000 residential properties
    • 12% of Florida’s market (units)
    • 72% made an all-cash purchase

Note: The facts above were provided as part of the National Association of REALTORS® Profile of International Home Buyers in Florida study.
