International Buyers Flock to Florida Real Estate, How One Realty Firm Responds

After Increasing its Volume of International Transactions by Over 100% From 2011 to 2012, the Former Bahia Realty Group Appropriately Changes its Name to Bahia International Realty.

Bahia International Realty has served the Tampa, Orlando and Miami areas of Florida since 2006 under their previous name, Bahia Realty Group. Their team of bilingual real estate agents has helped foreign buyers acquire properties in these thriving Florida communities. Now, after more than doubling their international client base in just one year, they are more accurately representing themselves with their new company name.

According to the National Association of Realtors® 2013 Profile of International Home Buying Activity, Florida is among the top 5 states that accounted for 61% of international purchases in 2013. Florida leads them all with 25% of the total number of international buyers over the past 5 years.

"Foreign investors are looking to park their money in a safe place," says Raul Aleman, Broker of Bahia International Realty. He continues, "Despite our soft economy, the U.S. is still perceived as the ideal place to invest for both wealth preservation and return of investment. I believe our growth of international clients shows that we are able to offer properties that satisfy both of these desires."

Bahia International Realty continues to serve many U.S. resident clients. However, the explosion of international market has been very dramatic and ends up benefiting both U.S. and international clients. U.S. clients gain the additional global exposure, and international clients benefit from Bahia's diverse representation of three of Florida's most popular cities.

Bahia International Realty is one of Florida's leading real estate firms that assists both local and international buyers and sellers of real estate with offices in Tampa, Orlando and Miami. Their broker, Raul Aleman can be reached at 813-402-1324 or info@bahiainternational.com
