Data is a powerful tool, with infinite real estate applications. First and foremost, you can use data to evaluate properties, prices, current inventory, and local market trends. After all, whether your clients are buying or selling, their top priority is getting the best price.
This is the first question you should ask yourself. People cross borders for many reasons. Examine each of these avenues to get a complete picture of the global population in your market and to identify opportunities to support their real estate needs.
International business and investment includes countless opportunities for commercial and residential agents. Much of the "action" takes place via economic development agencies, bi-national chambers of commerce, and similar groups. Here are additional resources for identifying touch-points that could be driving global demand for real estate in your market.
The tools mentioned so far answer a variety of specific questions that you, or your clients, may ask about your market. However, instead of compiling data from various sources, wouldn't it be nice to have a resource that “rolls everything up” into a single, summarized report that also includes properties available for sale?
