The Real Deal is reporting that spurred by dropping rents back home, Brazilian real estate investors are beginning once again to focus their sights on Miami. Rents in Miami have stayed mostly stable despite the influx of new inventory that has begun to hit the market. In Brazil rents have dropped 5.2%. The investors are looking for an escape from the political and economic instability in Brazil. Brazil had fallen out of the top five countries with interest in Miami real estate in June after 17 consecutive months at the top, but has climbed back to third in July according to the Miami Association of Realtors. Bloomberg is reporting that TRX Residential, a Miammi-base real estate investment firm, wants Brazilian investors to commit close to $30 million dollars, helping them to double the funds size. Brazilians single handedly saved the Miami real estate market in 2012 when they came to purchase second homes and take advantage of a stronger currency compared to the dollar. Since then many economic and political factors have shifted the Brazilians demand for American real estate, where they focus on Miami due to proximity, stability and potential for growth.
