Miami Real Estate's Global Reach
Talking a walk through popular areas in Miami and Fort Lauderdale like Lincoln Road and Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard clearly shows how varied South Florida's inhabitants are and the kinds of people who live in the homes and oceanfront condos the areas are known for. You can easily observe someone of African American descent having a drink by the beach with someone from as far away as China or Australia who was once a tourist and now owns a home in South Florida.
These Chinese and Australian individuals could theoretically be business owners and CEOs who've chosen to open their once native doors to an international audience here in Miami, a trend that's becoming increasingly common and has spurred their fellow citizens from their countries of origin to do the same and also encourages them to possibly buy a Miami luxury condo or invest in waterfront real estate. What's more, South Florida happens to be in a prime position when it comes to efficiently doing businesses with multiple countries.
The idea is simple: A person from Beijing, for example, sees that their uncle or sister is not only living comfortably in a Brickell condo in downtown Miami, the business they initially set up back home is also thriving in Florida. This person now has another individual who shares their native tongue and also the ideals they hold true and can confidently embark on new business ventures in a foreign city renowned for its international allure. Using this same approach, it can easily be used towards explaining why Miami is a tourism favorite and how crucial the money generated from Miami tourism has continually benefitted city development.
Realtors can find lots of potential prospects by acquainting themselves with international business owners looking for commercial property or just a foreign tourist who wants to experience the irresistible appeal of Miami luxury living. In a reciprocation of sorts, the realtor is doing his or her part towards continuing the multicultural pull of South Florida.
