DENVER, May 21, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- The first truly global online real estate resource, with hundreds of thousands of home listings in more than 70 countries and territories, has seen unprecedented success and growth since the website's launch. global.remax.com has drawn in nearly 750,000 unique visitors, who have generated more than 18 million page views. The majority of visitors are from China, the most searched city is London and the most searched country, the United States.
"Consumers have an appetite for a website that gives them not only the home listings from around the world, but in their own language and in their own currency," said William E. Soteroff, RE/MAX Executive Vice President, U.S. and International Regional Development. "The real estate market is truly global and buyers are no longer just looking in their own cities, they're looking for homes half a world away and global.remax.com is delivering."
Since its launch, the site has steadily grown and now has listings in more than 70 countries and territories in 32 languages. Visitors can also check prices in 31 currencies and get the latest world real estate news and events through an in-depth and detailed news feed. The closest competing website offers properties in only 18 countries, 11 languages and 20 currencies.
"You can see the strength of the RE/MAX network behind the success of the site," said Soteroff. "All our offices know how important the global buyer is to the real estate market today."
RE/MAX is continuing to add offices and sales agents around the world. In 2011, 725 new franchises were sold and eight new countries were added, including Egypt, which opened its first RE/MAX office. So far this year, three countries have joined the network; Morocco, Thailand and the Philippines.
