Phoenix Real Estate Goes Global

Majority of House Hunters from Out of State, Out of Country

DENVER and PHOENIX, Dec. 2, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- That family searching for a home in the Phoenix area is very likely not from Arizona, or, in fact, not even from the United States. The majority of house hunters drawn to the warm weather and sunshine come from much further north; many from across the Canadian border and still others from all across the world. And the new is making it easier for them to find what they are looking for.

"We are seeing nearly 70% of our buyers coming from outside the state," said Howard Lein, Broker/Owner, RE/MAX Excalibur Realty. "Phoenix and Scottsdale are attracting thousands of families who want a great lifestyle and they see buying a home here as a sound investment. They are using the tools on to find out what is on the market and to help them make important decisions." launched in early November as the first true global real estate listing website. It is giving eager buyers around the world the resources they need to search hundreds of thousands of RE/MAX properties in more than 60 countries and territories. The site has an advanced currency converter and language translator, which allow customers to view the listings in their own language and make more informed financial decisions.

"This is exactly what we needed, for our customers and our agents," said Lein. "Real estate is not just local anymore, it is global. And, to really put customers first, you have to provide the services they are asking for."

By the end of 2011, RE/MAX LLC is scheduled to add 10 new countries and three new languages; Japanese, Korean and Punjabi to the expanding website.

"We were convinced that a personal approach to real estate property searches was the key to a better website," said William E. Soteroff, RE/MAX Executive Vice President, U.S. and International Regional Development. "On, our buyers can truly customize their experience and get details on homes across the globe. Our sellers can be confident that their home is getting world-wide attention."

RE/MAX has a presence in more than 80 countries, a reach far greater than any competitor. With more than 6,300 offices around the world and a sales force of nearly 90,000 sales associates, buyers and sellers can take advantage of the experience and knowledge of the most productive professionals in the real estate industry.
