Interested in going international?
Whether buying or selling, international real estate is a booming business. If you are interested in buying real estate internationally, you may have your dream destination in mind, but do you know the ins and outs of buying internationally? Countries like Portugal, Brazil and the Dominican Republic are real estate investment hot spots, but you’ll need the guidance of an experienced real estate professional to help you through the complex process of buying international real estate.
The same level of expertise is needed to market your property to international buyers. We all know that Atlanta is truly multi-cultural, but did you know that one out of every 12 sales dollars in real estate transactions sold in the U.S. is an international transaction?
Additionally, according to the National Association of Realtors® international buyers:
- Paid a 50 percent higher average price
- Paid cash 60 percent of the time
- Accounted for $104 billion in sales from April 2014 – March 2015 (35%)
- International transactions increased by $12 billion in the last 12 months
