If you have enough money to buy a vacation home, but can’t seem to outbid the competition in the U.S., there is an alternative: look just outside the U.S.
Last year, that’s what a growing number of remote workers did, searching real estate markets across the North and South American continents. Amid the pandemic and expanding opportunities to work remotely, housebound homeowners looking to relocate have had the opportunity to expand their searches to places like Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica.
To find out where people were searching the Americas for a second home the past 12 months, point2homes.com, an online real estate marketplace headquartered in Saskatoon, Canada, analyzed user searches on its platform by using Ahrefs, a search engine optimization (SEO) software suite. The Ahrefs extracted keywords related to real estate in combination with all of the countries and territories from the Americas to determine the average number of searches per month for each. Point2 then ranked these locations based on the total number of searches for them during the past year.
Here, in ascending order, are the American nations that have attracted the most interest from U.S. home buyers:
This British island territory is reknowned for its pink-sand beaches and eclectic mix of U.K. and U.S. culture.
