It’s that time of year again, when the temperature falls and the northern snowbirds come down South to roost.

Brokers say they’re seeing increased movement in the snowbird sector early on in the season, especially from Canadian buyers, with the season already a few weeks under way.

"We’re certainly seeing increased activity, with more buyers coming through," said Bill Yahn, the Corcoran Group’s regional senior vice president for South Florida. "It’s manifesting itself in all the markets we serve."
