Overseas property portal 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 £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 said: “We have found that luxury international real estate is
increasingly being promoted online. 
Over two thirds – 67 per cent – of homes listed on in the last 3 months
by owners are priced more than £400,000.”

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, it’s vitally important
that you maximise the number of potential buyers who will see your property.

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

Mr Marr added: “Marketing to an international audience
through a website such as 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.
