With the development of private and commercial property ownership, real estate has become a major area of international business. Purchasing real estate requires a significant investment, and each parcel of land has unique characteristics that need to be documented for all parties to understand.

If you find a foreign buyer for your property, you may be concerned that selling to a non-U.S. citizen will complicate the closing process.

We can assign a translator with a background in this business to ensure that the specific terms and peculiarities of real estate text are correctly translated, so that you can rest assured there will be no misunderstandings.

“International transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals,” according to the NAR’s Web site,, “and working with partners who know how to handle these differences can make or break the purchase or sale.”

According to the U.S. National Association of Realtors (NAR), approximately 209,000 homes in the United States were sold to resident and nonresident foreigners between April 2015 and March 2016.  Foreign buyers spent more than $100 billion on U.S. homes, and realtors who dealt with international clients reported an increase of 7 percent from last year.

“Pick the best team you can,” advises Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America, an international brokerage based in Hamburg, Germany. “Sellers are wise to look for agents who are trained in the legalities and cultural traditions that come with a foreign buyer.”
