Russia is Again Top International Country Searching Miami Real Estate Miami is Second Most-Searched U.S. Market Globally

Russia is the most-active country searching Miami real estate for the second consecutive month, according to new data from the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI). Russia registered the most South Florida property searches among all countries on MIAMI’s portal, www.Miamire.com, in December 2016. Colombia and Venezuela finished second and third, respectively.

“Russia is part of an increasingly diverse group of countries that are purchasing Miami real estate,” said Christopher Zoller, the 2017 MIAMI chairman of the board.

The Miami city of Sunny Isles Beach, for instance, has a large Russian population and is known as “Little Moscow” for its propensity of Russian-owned delis, restaurants, beauty spas, supermarkets and real estate companies. About 7.4 percent of Sunny Isles residents list Russian as their first language, according to the U.S. Census.

Some investors see President-Elect Donald Trump’s election in November as a sign that relations between Russia and the U.S. may soon improve. The number of Russians who have expressed interest in buying luxury properties in the United States has increased by 35 percent over the previous year after Trump’s victory, according to global real estate consultancy Knight Frank.
