MIAMI — Colombia once again posted the most global web searches for Miami homes in September 2022, according to a new report by the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI). Colombia’s share of South Florida international searches increased year-over-year as the South American country has now topped the list of foreign countries searching for Miami real estate for seven consecutive months.


“The changing political landscape in countries such as Brazil, Colombia and Chile are leading global buyers to diversify their money into more secure investments,” MIAMI Chairman of the Board Fernando Arencibia Jr. said. “Miami real estate, which has enjoyed 10+ years of consecutive price appreciation, has long been the No. 1 U.S. destination for global buyers.”


Colombia accounted for 11.77% of all international searches on in September 2022, up from 8.93% in September 2021.


Argentina, which ranked No. 4 with 5.39% last month, jumped to No. 2 with 6.85% in September 2022. Homebuyers from 160+ countries search each month.
