Excerpt from Thursday’s Panel Discussion on International Buyers

avatarthumbnail.jpgNo, no Beaker this time.

Here’s an actual excerpt from Thursday’s panel on “Tapping the Global Real Estate Market” at Inman News’ Real Estate Connect in San Francisco. Glad the story was written since I’d forgotten what I said.

RE/MAX Realtor Jonathan Dalton, said that when it comes to the Canadian buyer, there is a limited opportunity because of the weak U.S. dollar. Dalton advises agents to be patient, and to target foreign buyers with their marketing.

“Canadians absolutely love looking at homes and once in a while they’ll buy one, too,” he said. “The key is to have a program in place where they are able to get on a listing search if nothing else, and get them onto your Web site. When they are serious they will come to you.”

When I first was introduced I was the president of RE/MAX Desert Showcase. Fame must be fleeting as I’ve gone back to just being a REALTOR.
