For the fifth consecutive month, Colombia was No. 1 with 12.2 percent of international searches. Two Colombian cities made the top 10 international city web searches: Bogotá ranked at No. 1 once again, while Antioquia ranked at No. 8.
In terms of the number of international purchases in South Florida, Colombia accounted for 9 percent in April 2018. A 2017 report tied Colombia and Canada for international purchases. For searches, Canada was No. 3 with 3.1 percent of international online searches.
The Miami Association of Realtors saw a new country on the list in April. Pakistan, the fifth-most populated country in the world, made the Miami Realtors’ list for the first time at No. 4, with 6 percent of its international searches. According to the Miami Association of Realtors, 72 percent of Pakistan web searches came from Karachi, which was No. 2 on the international cities list.
