Desemprego de imigrantes diminui nos EUA e Brasileiros ganham espaço

Os Estados Unidos vivem sua menor taxa de desocupação em quase 50 anos e os imigrantes estão tirando proveito deste cenário. Em junho deste ano, a economia americana gerou 224 mil empregos, conforme estudo divulgado pelo Bureau of Labor Statistics nos EUA, o que incluiu postos para trabalhadores vindos do exterior, com destaque para brasileiros.

Segundo dados da pesquisa, em 2018 havia 28.2 milhões de pessoas nascidas no exterior integrando a força de trabalho dos EUA, o que significa 17.4% do total. Para o especialista em negócios internacionais, André Duek, que reside e investiga o mercado americano há quase 10 anos, esse contexto favorece o desempenho de brasileiros, que, com sua criatividade e perfil empreendedor, têm garantido mais espaço na terra do tio Sam.

“O sucesso de toda grande empresa depende, e muito, da força de trabalho que ela nutre. Em um país continental como os EUA e tão diverso do ponto de vista de imigração, o mercado está se adaptando esta globalização de talentos profissionais. Sem dúvida, o perfil do brasileiro faz sucesso, pois este já chega no mercado americano disposto a dominar o inglês e muitas vezes o espanhol, com um perfil criativo e comunicativo”, pondera Duek.

Empregos ‘Made in Brazil’

Dados do Mapa Bilateral de Investimentos Brasil/USA 2019, desenvolvido pela Apex-Brasil em parceria com o Brazil-US Business Council e Amcham Brasil, divulgado este ano, mostram também uma alta na geração de empregos pelas empresas brasileiras presentes nos EUA. Empreendendo em diferentes setores como, metais, comércio atacadista e instituições financeiras, as afiliadas brasileiras empregaram 74.200 funcionários nos Estados Unidos em 2015 – dado mais recente divulgado até agora.

De 2009 a 2015, as empresas brasileiras nos Estados Unidos venderam significativamente mais internamente e geraram mais valor agregado nos Estados Unidos em comparação com outras economias, como Índia, China, Rússia e México. O Brasil foi o segundo país que mais gerou empregos, atrás apenas do México. Empresas brasileiras, em 2015, detinham $102.2 bilhões em ativos nos Estados Unidos, o dobro de 2009.

“O recente posicionamento de empresas brasileiras no mercado americano, de forma mais planejada e perene, garantiu uma longevidade maior às iniciativas. Mais negócios consolidados, mais vagas de trabalho. É uma matemática exata que favorece a geração de empregos”, pondera André Duek, que auxilia na implementação estratégica de empresas no exterior.

Brasileiros mais escolarizados

De acordo com a pesquisa do Bureau, o percentual de estrangeiros que integrava o mercado de trabalho nos EUA e possuíam um diploma de bacharel ou formação superior foi de 36.9%. Os que detinham diploma de ensino médio registraram 25.1% percentual, muito próximo ao de americanos nativos com diploma e ensino médio de 25.6%.

“A oferta de vistos para profissionais estrangeiros altamente qualificados é uma das lógicas seguidas pelo governo americano para impulsionar o mercado com a utilização de mão de obra profissional vinda de fora. Talentos profissionais que não serão desperdiçados pela maior economia do mundo que precisa seguir crescendo”, pondera Duek.

Outro detalhe mostrado pelo estudo é que homens estrangeiros representaram 77.9% da mão de obra, enquanto nativos representaram 67.3%. A presença de mulheres estrangeiras no mercado de trabalho, no entanto, foi menor que a de americanas nativas, sendo 54.3% e 57.6% respectivamente.

Vistos de trabalho

Os Estados Unidos oferecem diversos vistos para profissionais que desejam ingressar no mercado. O visto H1-B, por exemplo, é direcionado para trabalhadores estrangeiros qualificados com emprego temporário nos EUA. Profissionais especializados em áreas como TI, finanças, contabilidade, arquitetura, engenharia, matemática, ciências, medicina, entre outras, podem se valer deste visto.

Os vistos H2-A são reservados para trabalhadores agrícolas estrangeiros temporariamente. Já o visto H-2B destina-se a trabalhadores temporários estrangeiros em campos não agrícolas para trabalhar nos Estados Unidos, como motoristas de caminhão, suporte de esqui, hotéis, resorts de praia ou parques de diversões. Os vistos P são usados, principalmente por artistas e atletas que irão aos EUA para compromissos temporários.

Atuante há 33 anos no mercado nacional e internacional, André Duek é um empresário com experiência na gestão de grandes empresas no Brasil como as marcas de moda Triton, Forum e Tufi Duek. Nos EUA há 7 anos, consolidou, entre vários negócios de sucesso, a Duek Realty que é uma boutique imobiliária e a primeira empresa de locação de motorhomes gerida por brasileiros no país, a Duek Motorhomes. Fora do escopo empresarial, ainda foi comentarista esportivo nos canais ESPN Brasil, no grupo Bandeirantes e atualmente na plataforma global de streaming digital DAZN.

We Participate: Miami Herald Real Estate Survey 2019

Our business partner and broker Carolina Lara Arashiro was to capture for the 3rd year in a row in this survey from the perspective of the top industry experts and professionals.

Where should you live? Should you buy or rent? Here’s our 2019 Miami real estate survey

Kendall and North Miami surge as some of the best neighborhoods for home buyers. Brickell is among the hottest areas in town — as well as the most overvalued. And our ever-worsening traffic is playing an increasing role in where people decide to live.

And at last — Miami-Dade’s spiraling housing costs may be on the verge of cooling down a bit.

Those are among the key findings of the 2019 Miami Herald Real Residential Real Estate Survey, which is now in its fifth year. The study was conducted by the Miami-based research firm Bendixen & Amandi International between April 1-May 1. One hundred of Miami-Dade’s top brokers, agents, analysts and experts from all price points were interviewed in English and Spanish to gain their insights into the current housing market. The interviews were anonymous, so respondents could speak freely and candidly.

This year’s study included more people who specialize in the mid-price and rental markets, to better reflect the growing divide between Miami-Dade’s wealthy, foreign residents and its working-class locals.

Brazil is back: Brasileiros lead foreign investment in South Florida homes in 2018

Foreign investment rose 22.5 percent to $8.7B last year, despite a 7.5% decline in homes purchased

Miami real estate agents have one reason to be happy – Brazilian buyers are back as a dominant buyer pool in South Florida, amid an increase in foreign investment.

Political turmoil in Brazil and a strong dollar have kept buyers away from South Florida in recent years – until now. Brazil ranked as the top country buying South Florida homes in 2018, according to a new report from the Miami Association of Realtors.

In 2018, international buyers spent $8.7 billion on residential properties in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, up 22.5 percent from $7.1 billion in 2017. Foreign buyers acquired 14,300 homes in 2018, 1,000 or 7.5 percent fewer properties than the previous year, according to the report.

Brazil ranked No. 1 for the first time since the association began tracking foreign investment in 2012, representing 12 percent of all foreign purchases of homes in the tri-county region last year. Colombia and Venezuela tied for the second spot with 11 percent, each, followed by Argentina and Canada with 8 percent each. Mexico, France and Italy tied with 4 percent, each; and the United Kingdom, China, Peru and Ecuador had 3 percent, each.

In 2017, Argentina topped the list, followed by Venezuela, Canada and Colombia. Foreign investment in residential real estate in the tri-county area in 2018 represented 54 percent of all international sales in Florida, which ranks as the top state for such investment. Orlando was the second market for international sales with 9.4 percent of sales in the Sunshine State. South Florida represents about 9.5 percent of all U.S. international home sales, according to the report.

Voters Approve Privately Funded Miami Beach Convention Center Hotel

In the highly anticipated election on Tuesday night, Miami Beach residents approved the construction of an 800-room convention center hotel. The referendum needed a 60 percent vote in order to lease public land from the city and passed at 64 percent in its third attempt to bring a headquarter hotel to Miami. The hotel will be built on a city-owned parking lot adjacent to the newly renovated convention center.

The previous attempt in 2016 failed due to concerns over the size, originally twice as large as the current proposal, and traffic congestion. The tourism bureau estimates Miami Beach lost at least $250 million in economic revenue over the last several years because it was unable to accommodate larger scale conventions.

South Beach resident Andres Montejo, 43, said that the convention center hotel was one of the issues that drove him to the polls. Montejo, a businessman who travels frequently for work, said that the other cities he visits already have hotels connected to their convention centers.

“A convention center is great, but without a hotel it’s just another convention center,” he said after casting his ballot at Miami Beach Senior High School. “Anybody that travels … you know that’s how the game works. It’s like that all over the world.”

Other residents, annoyed with the constant flow of construction and resulting noise and traffic in the area, decided to vote against the hotel.

The hotel will connect to the convention center via a pedestrian bridge and include a 53-foot podium containing parking, meeting spaces and ballrooms as well as two 185-foot-tall wings of hotel rooms. Voters authorized the lease and the construction of an 800-room hotel with a maximum height of 185 feet, but specifics of the hotel design will be evaluated by the city’s Design Review Board at a later date.

The group behind the proposal — Turnberry’s Jackie Soffer, Terra Group’s David Martin, Miami Design District developer Craig Robins and architecture firm Arquitectonica — emphasized that the hotel would be roughly 100 feet shorter than the previous proposal and include six times more space for cars to queue on the property so that they don’t spill onto the street.

“This is the right project for our city at the right time, and Jackie, Craig and I look forward to working with the community to deliver a hotel that will make Miami Beach proud,” said developer David Martin.

On a related ballot item, residents voted to earmark the guaranteed hotel rent payments for traffic reduction measures, stormwater projects and education initiatives, rather than sending the money to the city’s general fund where it could be used for a broader range of expenses.

According to the terms of the lease agreement, the hotel will have to pay Miami Beach either fixed rent totaling $16.6 million over the first 10 years or a percentage of hotel revenue, whichever is greater. Miami Beach estimates that the city will also collect $96 million in taxes from the hotel over the next 30 years.

Ransom Everglades expanding again in Coconut Grove

Bayfront school added nearly 7 acres in 2016 with $35M purchase

The prominent, private middle and high school is under contract to purchase a home at 1921 South Bayshore Drive for about $3.7 million, according to Engel & Völkers Miami. The deal, set to close Nov. 15, would add about an acre to the 16.7-acre campus.

The property the school is buying includes a three-bedroom, 4,612-square-foot home. Records show Jeffrey Degen and Gary Majka of Degen Majka Interior Design are selling the Coconut Grove lot. It was listed with Victor Olaniel of The Olaniel and Elliott Team and Angel Nicolas of The Nicolas Group at Engel & Völkers. It was previously owned by Maria, Scott and Howard Srebnick, and Howard’s wife, Stacy Robins of the Robins family.

Rendering of the STEM center at Ransom Everglades

It’s unclear what the school plans to use the 40,500-square-foot property for. Ransom Everglades declined to comment.

It’s not the first time the school, which has its high school at 3575 Main Highway and its middle school at 2045 South Bayshore Drive, expands its land holdings in the Grove. In 2016, Ransom Evergladers paid nearly $35 million for the adjacent property at 3551 Main Highway. Earlier this year, developer and neighbor Caroline Weiss sued Ransom Everglades over its amended special area plan. In addition to increasing the Upper School’s total lot area to 801,319 square feet, the special area plan increases its maximum enrollment by 67 for a total of 726 students, increases staff from 140 to 160 and increases the surface parking lot by 31 spaces for a total of 241.

The bayfront school is also renovating its campus and building a new Science Technology Engineering and Math center. Earlier this month, it unveiled a portion of the completed renovations to the Cameron Hall, according to a press release.
