Top 6 Picks for Florida Condo Developments
South Florida’s condominium scene beckons with both its sun-soaked allure and as a practical haven for snowbirds seeking respite from winter’s chill. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), between April 2022 and March 2023, Canadians invested a substantial $6.6 billion USD in American real estate with 55 percent finding their home in Florida’s warm embrace.
Impressively, Canadians secure their place as the second-largest foreign buyers of U.S. real estate, trailing only China. Here are our top six picks for condominium developments in South Florida—a savvy guide for those looking to trade winter’s bite for a sunnier abode.
