Florida Real Estate and Canadian BuyersCanadian buyers continue to snap up Florida real estate, says a recent survey of foreign buyers produced by the National Association of Realtors on behalf of the Florida Realtors association. The survey tracked foreign buyers for a 12-month period from mid-2010 to mid-2011.

Canadian buyers were looking for bargains with the median price of homes purchased at a little over $151,000 US.
