Take a look at these interesting numbers that break down from which countries international buyers are coming.

  • Russians purchase the largest share of properties, around 20%, and they want the “crème de la crème,” paying up to about $25M for a property.
  • The Swiss account for the next largest buying block at 15% of the sales and they’ll buy properties priced up to around $13M. Their economy is doing alright and they hold the money of several countries, so now they want to spend it.
