Newport Beach, CA – March 29, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — The attraction of United States properties to Chinese buyers has been strongly documented over recent years due to record low interest rates and the drop in real estate prices; drawing investors to the opportunity of purchasing their very own piece of American real estate. As the property inventory levels continue to rise in the United States, foreign buyers are embracing the convenience of auctions conducted completely over the Internet as one of the best ways to invest in U.S real estate.
The Freedom Realty Exchange (FRE.com), a leading online real estate auction website, has partnered with REMM International, a leading U.S. based real estate management firm to deliver a secure and convenient auction platform to Chinese buyers interested in purchasing real estate in the United States. The global reach of FRE.com is a significant advantage to property owners wanting to sell but find themselves caught in the depressed U.S. market conditions. By expanding the buyer pool to foreign investors through an online auction, sellers increase their ability to attract more buyer attention and interest.
The website, available in Chinese, allows interested buyers to search a variety of real estate offerings; land, commercial, industrial and residential properties, and conduct their initial due diligence and property research prior to submitting their bid. All bidding is conducted online, as well as closing the sales transaction, making the purchase of real estate possible from the comfort and privacy of the buyer’s computer.
As a testament to online auctions being an effective bridge between overseas buyers and available U.S. real estate, a recent auction on FRE.com featured a commercial office building in Painesville, Ohio with a buyer from Tianjin, China. The building is located directly across from City Hall and the County courthouse, and anchored by a Chase Bank branch.
Having learned of the auction through an email marketing campaign, the buyer went to FRE.com and registered a user account. He easily downloaded all the available property information, submitted the required bid deposit through a convenient wire transfer, then proceeded to actively bid on the property through online bidding until he was the highest bidder.
“Perfect and super,” stated the Chinese investor about his experience closing the transaction. He also said that he would recommend FRE.com as the best option for a foreign buyer interested in purchasing property in the U.S. and he would definitely participate in another auction if he found the right property at the right price.
The auctions are broker-friendly, usually offering broker participation to the agent representing the buyer.
