International real estate broker
Fourte International Real Estate has been Certified as an International Property Specialist (CIPS) by the National Association of Realtors. The CIPS designation is based on our global experience and education and it permits us to display the CIPS internationally-recognized logo and participate in the exclusive CIPS network with other International Real estate agencies.
Having a broker that is CIPS designated and licensed to practice law in multiple jurisdictions makes transactions a lot easier for both buyers and sellers. At Fourte International Real Estate, we have actually visited, lived in, and/or have trusted agents or contacts in many of the countries where we broker including Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Jamaica, Colombia, Costa Rica, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, England, Spain, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Sweden, Poland, Denmark, Netherlands, Bahrain, UAE Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Somalia and Morocco.
Regulations. We help you navigate International real estate issues such as OFAC (Office of Foreign Asset Control) compliance, Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) verification, Foreign currency conversions, Foreign currency fluctuations, Value Added Tax (VAT), Offshore accounts, and a host of other issues that can slow down or speed up these types of transactions.
Purchasing Real Estate outside the United States. If you are seeking to purchase real estate in a foreign country, Fourte International should be your first stop. We will help prequalify you and show you the ins and outs of buying property internationally. Most Americans are used to buying property in America, but the process is different in other countries. We’ll help you understand what to look for and what to avoid in the major markets where Americans purchase international property.
Selling Real Estate to International Buyers. If you are selling a home in the United States, why would you limit your buyers to just the 327 million residents of the U.S. when you could instead have 23 times as many potential buyers (7.69 billion) from across the planet? We network with other CIPS designated International Real Estate brokers from around the world and as a result we can expose your property to a much wider audience than your average brokerage. Many International buyers present all cash offers.
