According to the article, the recent surge in Brazilian visitors and Brazilian home buyers in the South Florida real estate market is largely credited to Brazil’s booming economy.  In fact, the country’s economy is expected to become the fifth largest in the world by 2016.

  • After Canada, Brazil is the second most important foreign market in Broward County.
  • There are an estimated 250,000 to 300,000 Brazilians living in Florida, according to the Brazilian Consulate in Miami.  The majority of them live in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, as well as Orlando.
