International Real Estate Transactions
Require Specialized Agents & Multi-Lingual Web Presence
International real estate transactions are more complex than domestic dealings. They require knowledge on visa and international tax laws, regional market conditions, investment performance as well as currency and financing options. Working with a certified and knowledgeable real estate professional that specializes in outbound and inbound international property transactions is imperative with these types of exchanges.
At this time, there are approximately 3000 Certified International Property Specialists (CIPS) in the world. These professionals assist their clients in completing international transactions seamlessly and with reduced risk. CIPS agents have access to a wide network of professionals to assist you with inbound or outbound transactions around the globe.
When seeking a real estate team to assist with International property, clients look for websites and property-search platforms that cater to multiple languages. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has launched Phase I of this indispensable resource for any global buyer of U.S. real estate.
