Australian property agents will be able to access more than 40 million prospective purchasers from around the world under a new partnership between listings sites homesales.com.au and ListGlobally.
Under the new service, which is part of homesales.com.au’s Premium Experience listing package, client agents can upload 'For Sale' listings to an international network of over 50 real estate websites.
Rhett Dallwitz, general manager of homesales.com.au, said the addition of ListGlobally services to homesales.com.au’s Premium Experience package was an important development for the Australian real estate site.
“The ability to market individual properties to a global audience can be a powerful selling point for agents when discussing marketing plans with vendors," he said.
“The great part of our agreement with ListGlobally is that we’ve packaged the international listing product into homesales’ existing Premium Experience package. There is no additional cost for this service to our Premium clients.”
Chris Vulovic, CEO of ListGlobally, said there had never been a better time for the Australian agents to leverage the global market.
“As the real estate market has recovered globally, a new interest in the global market of real estate has emerged, with investors increasingly looking overseas to build portfolios of real estate in healthy economies like Australia, or property that can be bought under market value in distressed economies such as that of Europe," he said.
“In the United States alone, overseas investment has increased by almost $20 billion in transactions last year, up from $66.4 billion in 2011 to $82.5 billion in 2012."
