Luxury Home in Sarasota CountySarasota, FL - If you live outside the U.S., but you're thinking of buying a home in southwest Florida, you're part of a growing number of prospective buyers from around the globe.

Sales of U.S. real estate to international buyers totaled $82.5 billion in the year ending March 2012 (a very impressive gain over the $66.4 million in the same period the previous year), and Florida alone claimed a whopping 26% of these real estate sales.

All of this is according to an annual survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Notably, Sarasota real estate ranks high on the NAR's list of most popular markets in the U.S. for international real estate investors.
