Overseas property portal Homesgofast.com which has been promoting real estate online for over 8 years reports a marked increase in luxury homes being sold online. In the last 3 months 67% of homes listed by owner for example are now priced over ÃÂ£400,000.
Selling online increases the audience of potential buyers
In the past, luxury overseas real estate was often marketed by high net worth real estate agents or property companies. However, increasing numbers of people are seeing the benefits of using a dedicated online luxury homes website.
Nick Marr, director of luxury international property website HomesGoFast.com said: Ã¢â¬ÅWe have found that luxury international real estate is increasingly being promoted online. Over two thirds Ã¢â¬â 67 per cent - of homes listed on homesgofast.com in the last 3 months by owners are priced more than ÃÂ£400,000.Ã¢â¬Â
Sign of the times
Home owners and real estate agents are eager to save money and increasingly are finding it harder to find a buyer they see the internet as a valid place to promote even the most expensive of properties. If you own a luxury home, you will often find that you have a relatively small pool of buyers. So, itÃ¢â¬â¢s vitally important that you maximise the number of potential buyers who will see your property.
Luxury International Homes
Approaching a real estate agent may be one way of selling your property, but you should ask the agent exactly how much online exposure you will receive. Your property should also be marketed on a suitable website which showcases similar luxury homes.
Mr Marr added: Ã¢â¬ÅMarketing to an international audience through a website such as homesgofast.com is a must for any seller of a luxury overseas home. This is because you will reach millions of overseas buyers who may be in a better position to buy than local purchasers.
