Germany Top Country Searching Miami Real Estate in October 2022

MIAMI — Germany posted the most global web searches for Miami homes in October 2022, according to a new report by the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI). Colombia, which had topped the list of foreign countries searching for Miami real estate for the past seven consecutive months, finished second.


“Germany’s surging interest in Miami real estate could be a result of Hurricane Ian’s impact to Southwest Florida and how German buyers, long time purchasers in Southwest Florida, could be shifting their investments to Miami/South Florida,” MIAMI Chairman of the Board Fernando Arencibia Jr. said. “The data continues to show a diverse list of foreign homebuyers searching for Miami real estate.”


Germany accounted for 22.19% of all international searches on in October 2022, up from 1.66% in October 2021. Most of the searches came from Berlin—the top international city searching in October 2022.


MIAMI REALTORS® will exhibit with the prestigious Immobilien Verband Deutschland (IVD), a Berlin-based real estate association that represents more than 6,000 member companies, at EXPO REAL from Oct. 4-6, 2023, in Munich, Germany. MIAMI’s major presence at this elite event will create global business opportunities for members and enhance South Florida’s global exposure. About 40,000 participants from 73 countries will participate at 2023 EXPO REAL.
