Every winter, visitors come to the Vail Valley from all over the globe. And every year, a growing percentage of international our visitors decide to purchase a Vail Valley home. If you are hoping to sell a luxury home in an internationally recognized market, maximized and optimized exposure to international buyers makes sense.
Reaching out to the international market can be tricky, but it is far from impossible assuming your agent has the right systems in place to do so.
The Rocky Mountain Home Team is a proud member of the Keller Williams Global Properties Specialist network. This network facilitates international property marketing by bringing together agents and databases from across the globe. Each Rocky Mountain Home Team listing will be translated into 22 languages and promoted by 500,000 international agents from Mexico and Canada to India and China.
“Word is spreading fast about the advantage of investing in Western Real Estate,” said a Keller Williams report on international buyers. “As the flow of global capital into US markets increases, so does the number of foreign buyers who also want a piece of this re-emerging opportunity.”
The report, “Buyers without Borders,” revealed a surprisingly even split between foreign nonresident buyers and immigrants and visa holders. Nonresidents include investors, vacationers and “education buyers” with children attending a U.S. college. Immigrants and visa holders include students from abroad, achievers seeking the American dream, and “opportunists” interested in taking advantage of the EB-5 visa. The EB-5 can fast-track a green card for foreign nationals who invest $1,000,000 in an area, or no less than $500,000 in a “targeted employment area.”
Each category of international buyer has particular needs. The Vail Valley is particularly suited to the needs of investors, vacationers and achievers, but could potentially attract foreign buyers from all categories. Membership in the Global Properties Specialist network ensures our clients will be well represented on the growing international market.
