Yesterday I received the long awaited email confirming my status as Certified International Property Specialist, and this is how my new designation will benefit you:
Did you know?
– Last year international buyers spent $103 billion on U.S. residential properties, and $132 billion on U.S. commercial properties.
– The price of homes purchased by international buyers was over $240,000 more than the median price of all transactions last year.
– The majority of global transactions are cash purchases.
Orange County is an attractive real estate market to foreign buyers (and sellers). However, international transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals. From currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with a Realtor® who knows how to handle these differences can make or break the purchase or sale of your home. Because of these nuances, it is essential to work with a knowledgeable and trusted professional.
What is a CIPS?
A Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designee has undergone specialized training to complete international transactions seamlessly and with reduced risk.
The CIPS designation is the only international designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®. Only REALTORS® who have completed the coursework and demonstrated considerable experience in international business can call themselves a CIPS designee, and use the name and logo.
After they have completed the coursework requirements, designees instantly join a tight-knit network of over 2,800 international property professionals around the world. These referral partners can help you do business in over 50 countries, and ensure that you will receive the same level of service no matter where your next home is located. Jaleesa Peluso is one of only about 400 California agents with this designation.
