Brazilians seek Florida property bargains

Perfect storm of economic events makes US especially attractive to foreign home buyers.

    Overseas home buyers are finding opportunity in a depressed housing market in Miami, Florida. 

    Many properties have been left vacant for years, and now a number of Brazilian investors are taking advantage of rock-bottom prices. 

    Economic circumstances have made the US especially attractive to international home buyers, as the dollar is relatively weak against many foreign currencies.
