Sarasota, FL, October 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Representatives of RE/MAX Platinum Realty recently returned from A Place in The Sun International Real Estate Showcase in Birmingham, United Kingdom, where they represented developer communities in Tampa as well as RE/MAX Platinum Realty’s listings in the Sarasota area.
Co-owner Cheri Guentner and Global New Homes Division Manager Teresa Witte shared information with UK buyers and real estate professionals about the numerous benefits of buying retirement and vacation property in the Tampa to Sarasota corridor, including the convenience to Orlando, cultural and recreational amenities, international airports, and the great buys that are still available. Witte also participated in a panel discussion emphasizing how Realtors can facilitate the home search and buying process for foreign buyers.
“UK buyers have followed the economic situation in the United States and they understand that now is the best time to buy,” said Witte. “Interest rates are still low and many deals can be found as the fiscal year ends for new-home developers.”
The exhibition saw an increase of 20 percent in the number of visitors over last year, approaching 5,000 visitors.
“A Place in the Sun exceeded our expectations,” said Broker-Owner Bryan Guentner. “In addition to representing developer clients in Tampa, we made many international contacts with potential buyers for waterfront and luxury properties here in Sarasota. Because of the success of the event, we have decided to attend the London show in March of 2014.”
Builders and developers who partner with RE/MAX Platinum Realty have access to sales associates in the five local offices, as well as brokers in the RE/MAX international broker network in more than 85 countries. Builder and developer properties are marketed through networking, international trade shows and active company sales efforts.
