Kijner & Sons International Realty
 is pleased to share with you the latest report from the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), entitled "2013 Profile of International Home Buying Activity". This report is based on a survey conducted annually since 2007 to measure the level of sales of U.S. residential real estate to foreign nationals. It provides information on international homebuyers and their preferences through data gathered from Realtors®. In this report, the terms "international" referes to both: 

> Type A: Foreigners with permanent residences outside the US and who purchase real estate properties for investments, vacations or visit purposes (they remain less than 6 months in the US)

> Type B: Clients who are recent immigrants (less than two years in the U.S.) or temporary visa holders and who reside for more than 6 months in the US for professional or educational purposes or other reasons

It is interesting to note that international sales accounted for $68.2 billion from March 2012 to March 2013, approximately a 6.3% of the total U.S. existing homes sales (EHS) market of $1.08 trillion for the same period. To most international buyers, the U.S. is seen as a desirable location, a secure and profitable investment with Florida being in the top four states in terms of number of buyers. Leading the way, Canadians and Chinese are the main international homebuyers of U.S. properties.
