International Buyers

International Florida Land BuyersWe welcome international land buyers! In fact, nearly 1 in 5 lots we seller are to buyers from outside the United States. Many savvy international investors have found well located U.S. land to be a safe, stable, and often rewarding investment. In fact, recent years has shown a significant increase in international investors buying U.S. land.

Foreign buyers purchase U.S. residential properties for a variety of reasons—for example, vacation, investment, asset diversification, and residential use. The National Association of Realtors says proximity to the home country, the presence of relatives, friends and associates, job and educational opportunities, and climate and location appear to be important considerations to prospective buyers. Europeans and Canadians are attracted to Florida for its warmer climate. Buyers from Latin America, including Mexico, favor states in close proximity such as Texas and Florida.

The top five countries with international buyers purchasing in the United States are Canada, China, India, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. These five countries account for approximately 50% of the U.S.’s international land purchases.

Jacob Passy from National Mortgage News writes that the real estate industry is seeing an all-time record of global equity competing for core real estate assets. Factors that contributed to this are higher confidence range from improvement in the U.S. economy, low interest rates and availability of equity capital.

More Realtors are reporting working with international clients, up from 28 percent in 2013 to 35 percent in 2014. Four states accounted for half of all international sales: Florida, California, Texas, and Arizona, according to NAR’s report.

One source states that 90% of international buyers are looking for land in Florida. The Realtor’s Association reported that Florida international sales are a major portion of the market.

Approximately 25 percent of all sales in Florida are to foreigners.
