Miami Herald today said: U.S. destinations appeal to Canadian travelers

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty

DAVID SHARP Associated Press from the Miami Herald said in today's news: "As the Canadian dollar nears parity with the U.S. dollar, more Canadian travelers are vacationing in the United States -- good news for South Florida's tourism outlook."  Take a look at the article at: http://www.miamiherald.com/103/story/172720.html 

Don't you believe that could be a good opportunity for our market too? I believe that the fact is Florida beeing atractive to Canadians; therefore, we could create a nich or necesity to them to purchase 2nd. homes, so they would have vacation homes here in Florida. Wouldn't be nice? How could we advertise there?

Victoria... first of all Bienvenida to the Rain!

Are you part of the famous Perdomo family in Miami??

You make a good point and bring up a good article.  I hope you don't mind if I run with it from a Mortgage perspective!

I have written many articles on Foreign National Investment in Florida.  Now is a great time!

Feel free to peruse my posts if they can help you, let me know and I'll send them to you in PDF format to use with your buyers...

Thanks David for the welcome wish! It is really excited to be part of this group and learn a bit from everybody and everything.

Ja, ja, ja, ja.... famous Perdomo Family? I guess not, but I am famous anyway!

That would be very nice to have your professional opinion on this matter. I do not know much about the Canadian Market, but I work a lot with Venezuelans, and foreign national loans are always changing; therefore, I would really appreciate any info. that can help me.

Thanks for stooping by...

Victoria...

1) I can put the links to my posts in your post

2) you can write a new post.... target it to Latin Americans and put links in the actual post

3) we should talk on the phone and maybe even meet for coffee sometime in the next week or so and see how we can mesh the strategy!

Good info !!
