What can a CIPS designee do for a client?
Global transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals. From currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with a REALTOR® who knows how to handle these differences can make or break a real estate transaction. Because of these nuances, it is essential to work with a knowledgeable and trusted professional, such as a CIPS designee.
What is the CIPS Designation?
A Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designee has undergone specialized training to complete global transactions seamlessly and with reduced risk
The CIPS designation is the only international designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®. Only REALTORS® who have completed the coursework and demonstrated considerable experience in global business can call themselves a CIPS designee.
BUYING A PIECE OF property in another country is a good strategy for diversifying your investment portfolio, but it’s much more than that, too.
1. Own a second home in the sun spending $80,000 for a house on the beach in Brazil rather than $500,000 for a home on the beach in New Jersey.
2. Retire abroad for pennies on the dollar. Take advantage of a super low cost of living, as little as $1,000 per month or less.
3. Enjoy a rich cultural experience.
4. Achieve true investment diversity.
5. Benefit from currency diversity.
6. Earn an income abroad. Rental investment in another country can generate an income stream that’s independent of the U.S. economy and often denominated in another currency, as well.
7. Deduct travel costs from your taxes.
8. Enjoy the security of a hard asset. In the current climate, hard assets are a sensible investment class for securely storing value.
9. Profit from the world’s agriculture boom. Some of the most solid investments over the past few years have been agricultural.
10. Real estate overseas is a tax-efficient investment, meaning this is an opportunity for you to store and grow wealth privately.
11. Take advantage of international asset protection.
12. Open the door to foreign residency. Owning property overseas can give you a “foot in the door” and in many countries, owning real estate locally qualifies you for a residency visa.
