5 Reasons to use a true international Real Estate Brokerage

by | Saturday, October 10, 2015

Real Estate is local, BUT nowadays many buyers are not. A new National Association of Realtors report shows that in fact international buyers spent $23.7 billion on Florida Real Estate last year.

International buyers usually prefer to work with an International Real Estate Agent

Buyers like to work with an agent who can understand their needs and can explain differences in the home buying process in Florida compared to their home country.

Here are 5 reasons why you should attract not only national, but also international buyers when selling your home:

  • International unit sales totaled 44,000 properties
  • As a percentage, international sales made up 12 percent of Florida’s residential market
  • The dollar volume of international sales: $23.7 billion
  • By dollar volume, international sales made up 24 percent of Florida sales (19 percent a year ago)
  • About 74 percent of foreign buyers bought their properties all cash, so no need for appraisals and faster closings.

Foreign buyers typically purchased properties that were more expensive than those purchased by the typical Florida domestic buyer. The average price of a property purchased by the foreign buyer was $538,600, compared to the average price of $258,200 in Florida’s residential market.
