"We make our customers our priority, and they told us they needed a comprehensive resource for international properties," said William E. Soteroff, RE/MAX Executive Vice President, U.S. and International Regional Development. Â "We're seeing an increasing number of foreign buyers looking for property in the U.S. and American buyers looking overseas. global.remax.com is essentially a one-stop source for residential and commercial real estate, no matter where you live."
Real estate trends differ from country to country, city to city and even neighborhood to neighborhood. Â Buyers and sellers who visit global.remax.com can stay on top of the latest real estate news and events through an in-depth and detailed news feed. Â The site will also feature a rotating spotlight on a specific country or region, offering visitors insight into that market and any new developments. Â
In countries like India, Brazil and China, as the population grows and incomes rise, families are searching for homes of their own and investment properties. Â RE/MAX is also growing, adding offices around the globe. Â Franchise sales were up nearly 15% in the first half of 2011, a mark that looks to outpace last year's total franchise sales, which recorded an impressive 30% increase over 2009. In Brazil alone, RE/MAX has seen 133% growth over 2010.
"We're growing because there's a need for experienced and professional agents," said Soteroff. Â "In some countries, RE/MAX has been the first real estate brand to go in and open for business. Â It's exciting to be a part of that."
RE/MAX has a presence in more than 80 countries, a reach far greater than any competitor.
