Investing in Florida Real Estate from the 
Middle East 


 

Florida is currently one of the leading real estate markets that has been attracting investors from the Middle East. A study done by the CBRE states that each year more Middle Easterners are investing in properties in Florida. There are a number of reasons why this dramatic change is being noted in the last 2 years. The first reason is the unstable conditions, in the Middle East has turned wealthy families to look for more residency options around the world. The second reason is that Middle Easterners are now looking for a place beside New York and London. As Florida's real estate market was getting hotter, they saw an opportunity and jumped at it. 

 

For many Tampa is a new city to explore, and it offers a number of attractions, such as places to visit including parks, museums and beaches. In addition, the addition of new luxury homes and apartments appeals to Arabs looking for a residence or rental in the city. Lastly, over the last few years we have seen a number of world renowned restaurants, hotels, brands, and cultural offerings added to Florida, which has made it a much more sophisticated option for travelers, and movers. However, one of the key reasons for the interest in real estate investing is the direct flight to the Florida airports from major Middle Eastern Cities. 

 

So when you put all these elements together, you will see the appeal Florida has to offer. As it is now seen as a secure, up-market, modern, and accessible space for Middle Easterners. As it is a warm city, that offers reasonably priced homes, and amenities. 

 

Types of Middle Eastern Buyers in Florida 

There are three main types of Middle Eastern Buyers seen in Florida. 

  1. Individuals - wealthy individuals who are looking for a place to spend a few months each year. 
     

  2. Investors - People who are looking for small and large sized projects to invest in for the future. 
     

  3. Students - people who are planning on studying in one of the many universities that Florida has to offer. 
     

However, the majority of Middle Eastern buyers are looking for future investments they can bank on, and can access. 

 

How To get a US Visa from Middle East
