Global real estate opportunities are everywhere. People move to the U.S. from other countries every day and foreign-born individuals residing in the U.S. move to new markets. Americans in your current market may look to invest in property overseas. No matter which audience you cater to, the CIPS designation will provide you with the knowledge, research, network and tools to globalize and expand your business.
As a real estate professional, you have learned from experience that although no two homebuyers are the same, they do share some common tendencies based on life stages and generational groupings. The goal of the Buyers by Generation: Success in Every Segment course is to instill a better understanding of these generational characteristics and to help you adapt your communications, marketing, and face to-face interactions to provide the services that buyer-clients value.
The following generational groups are explored:
- Gen X
- Baby Boomers
- Silent Generation
