Why are international buyers important? According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2016 Profile of International Home Buying Activity, international buyers typically purchase more expensive properties. From April 2015-March 2016, nationally foreign buyers paid $477,462, which is higher than the average price of $266,683 of existing home sales. Ten percent of foreign buyers purchased properties valued at over $1 million. 50 percent of these transactions were all cash sales. And during the same period of April 2015-March 2016, foreign buyers purchased $102.6 billion of residential property.
While any agent can put your home on the MLS and syndicate to property sites within the US, you want to make sure your agent has the knowledge, network and tools to sell your property successfully and put it in front of the people looking for a home like yours.
