Relationships and Trust:
Before an international buyer decides who to work with in finding that perfect vacation home or investment, there must be an established relationship that develops into trust. It is not often possible to meet in person but with today’s technology and social media platforms, there are many options to “meet” and get to know each other on a personal level. When a friendship develops from consistent conversations and meetings, then the trust is there as well, and a buyer is more confident in moving forward.
Expertise and Experience:
However, that is only one aspect of working with international buyers. They need someone with experience in all phases of real estate and expertise in the particular market of their interest. They will rely on the guidance and advise given to make important financial decisions in order to have a successful and profitable investment. That is their main goal in the purchase of real estate in another country.
Integrity and Reliability:
Knowing their real estate agent well through research, testimonials and reviews will add to a solid relationship and provide peace of mind that buyers are working with a reputable agent they can rely on to answer questions and provide valuable information.
Purchasing a property sight unseen from another country can be very stressful or even disastrous if not handled through an agent with the proper credentials. Our team has worked with buyers from Canada, England, Scotland, Venezuela, South Africa, India, Brazil, Israel and other countries. Many have become our permanent friends in the process.
What an international buyer wants is what we can offer . . . . . . . trust, experience and friendship.
