Marketing Your Listings Internationally

By
Real Estate Agent with Alliance Real Estate

NAR is a member of the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations (ICREA).  Therefore, as a member of NAR you are also a member of ICREA.  If you currently have the Enhanced Listing Package with Realtor.com then you can also have your home "Internationally Featured" on Realtor.com by simply calling Realtor.com and giving the representative the MLS number of your listing. 

They will designate your listing as an international listing and it will have the little diamond icon and be featured on WorldProperties.com.  See how it looks below.  Now, is this the magic bullet to getting a home sold?  Sorry, even buyers outside the United States do not buy overpriced listings.  However, it does give you a edge against your competition by differentiation and additional exposure

Even though real estate is local, the world is becoming smaller with globalization.  Omaha is the home of several Fortune 500 companies and we have two large graduate universities.  These companies and schools attact international students and staff that are re-locating to the Omaha area.  Additional Exposure to this market gives you a competitive edge and puts you in contact with this potential market and all it takes is a simple  phone call.

 

 

Thanks,

David Matney, CRS,GRI

Terrific.  I will definitely call realtor.com & ask that my listings be internationally advertised.  I didn't know that I could do this.  Yes! Thanks for passing this on.

I'm Brad's Account Exec at Realtor.com and I just wanted to say thanks for getting the word out on this little known feature.  Most agents don't take the opportunity to feature their listings internationally.
