Global real estate opportunities are everywhere. People move to the U.S. from other countries. Foreign-born individuals residing in the U.S. move to new areas, or purchase their first home. Many native-born Americans are interested in purchasing a rental property overseas, or may want to retire overseas. No matter which market you are serving, NAR’s Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation will provide you with the knowledge, research, network and tools to globalize and expand your business.
