Local Expertise with a Global Integrated Network.(c)
Times have changed and today with the internet and technology advances Real Estate is now Global. The world has effectively shrunk and Real Estate markets have a reach and scope that transcends geography. International Real Estate transactions--including foreign purchases here in our own neighborhoods and U.S. citizens purchasing abroad--is growing at an accelerated pace. This opens doors and opportunities for buyers and sellers that can not be ignored.
It becomes even more important to be selective in choosing a Realtor who has earned the prestigious Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) Designation. What this does for you, the client, is it puts you on the global playing field. A CIPS has a presence in the global market and has the tools to render not just local exposure and information, but global awareness to those wishing to invest in the U.S. The CIPS's market place is multi-cultural and world wide. The importance of using a Realtor who has a greater understanding of the dynamics driving today's international Real Estate market, and who can recognize and respond to opportunities for their local clients, selling or purchasing, as well as their foreign clients whose interest in the U.S. Real Estate market, is evident.
More and more people in different nations recognize the value of owning Real Estate, and U.S. represents one of the best and safest places to make such an investment. Today, many foreign buyers are witnessing greater availability and value. The weaker U.S. dollar makes prices of Real Estate in the U.S. more favorable to foreign investors. For example:
* $1.00 U.S. Dollar vs. British Pound Sterling = $2.00
* $1.00 U.S. Dollar vs. The Euro (most of Europe) = $1.33 (and rising)
Foreign buyers can buy considerably more house in the U.S. simply through more favorable currency exchange rates of their own currency.
*Currency rates change daily, see our currency converter for up the minute information.
