Peruvians currently account for 2% of real-estate investments made in the State of Florida (the United States), Invertir USA Expo 2017 organizer Daniel Rosenthal informed.

In terms of Latinos' participation in said housing market, Rosenthal noted Brazilians currently lead the group (8.7%). They are followed by Venezuelans (7.8%), Argentinians (6%), Colombians (5.2%), as well as Peruvians and Mexicans (2%).
 
"The U.S. is already a good option in the real-estate sector, since the country has overcome the housing bubble," Rosenthal observed. 

Miami Realtors Association data revealed Latin Americans prefer one- or two-storey horizontal houses with 3 bedrooms, living room and kitchen in clubhouse condos. They also favor those with amenities like pools and party rooms. 

"Opportunities range from US$150,000 to US$5 million," he added.

Likewise, the USA Expo spokesman estimates Peru has potential for further growth, and Peruvian homebuyers in Florida could reach 3% in 2017. 

"The new AFP-fund availability opportunity [allowing retirees to withdraw their private pension], in addition to an increasing U.S. investing know-how, could further speed up the upturn," the officer concluded.
