Foreign Buyers May Return in November

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden will ease foreign travel restrictions into the U.S. beginning in November, when his administration will require all foreign nationals flying into the country to be fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated passengers will not be required to quarantine.

In my recent market reports I wrote: “As buyers from more foreign countries are allowed to visit the US again, those buyers – who were largely absent last year – may well add further demand to an already extremely tight market.
As for the future what remains true is that “as it’s now possible to work from anywhere in the world, why not live and work in paradise?”

Traffic is starting to pick up in Southwest Florida as we see the first of the winter arrivals. If you are interested in buying please contact me to beat the rush!

Some of the workers live in Bonita Springs, about halfway between Naples and Fort Myers. Incorporated only at the start of this century, Bonita for the first time barely edged into the Top 50 of the most populated in Florida, joining Cape Coral, Fort Myers and North Port.

“Demand to move here has always been strong, but lately, low interest rate policy, and coupled with lockdown fatigue up north, increased demand even more, which explains the larger-than-expected increases in population down here,” said economist Christopher Westley, dean of Florida Gulf Coast University’s Lutgert College of Business.
