  • There are currently over 44,000 Brazilians who live in Miami, plus countless tourists visiting from Brazil.
  • Brazilian buyers made up 11% of all international real estate in South Florida.

  • The exchange rate of the Brazilian Real to US Dollar is 31 centavo (the Real’s equivalent to a cent) to one dollar. This is down 13 centavos from last year.
  • There are 22 new millionaires in Brazil every week, several of them are “flush with cash from a strong economy,” and are buying property in or simply visiting the Miami area.
  • Giraffas Brazilian Grill has a total of 10 franchises in Florida, headed towards their goal of 150 stores by 2020.
