Looking for International Buyers

Asked by Lisa Spencer, Broker Associate, CRS, GRI,TRC,e-Pro, Lithia, FL Wed Oct 29, 2008

I belong to a group of pro-active agents in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA that is determined to service International Buyers. I am trying to complete an assignment to begin a dialog with an International Buyer before our next meeting. "It is a great time to buy" in Tampa Bay and our group has researched that many of the International Buyers in our area currently come from Canada and the UK, we also have a rich history with South American buyers. Are there any websites, social networking sites, or other media that would assist me in making connections internationally?

Hi Lisa,

I am a Re/max agent in South Africa who is also looking at international reverals. I'm not sure how much you know about South Africa but it is a truly beautiful country with a lot of potential and stunning weather! The best thing for American is the exchange rate! I have a few coastal properties at and average price of $80,000 in an area which has been targeted for great tourism development. Foreign buying of property in South Africa is reasonably uncomplicated and well protected by law.

We also have quite a high emigration rate and I would like to have good contacts internationally to refer my client to.

Do you think that we could help each other?

Hi Lisa! I was just reading about the international market in this month's Florida Realtor Magazine. A couple of the websites they mentioned: WorldProperties.com, Fiabei.com, Ired.com, and GlobalRealEstate.org. Let us know what other sites you find!
