International buyers and sellers have played an increasingly important role in the U.S.A. real estate market over recent years. As a result, more and more real estate professionals are working with customers from other countries. There is rising affluence throughout the world, and buyers come from a wide variety of countries to purchase U.S. real estate, drawn by “bargain-priced” homes, desirable lifestyle, favorable currency exchange rates or finding a safe haven for themselves and their money. More real estate professionals than ever have now worked with an overseas buyer or seller.
They are attractive as customers because: The majority of sales are cash purchases and Foreign purchasers typically buy higher priced homes. Pat and Carla will guide your through the maze of working with International Buyers and expanding your business, all while reducing your risk.
