Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS)

Pre-Convention Course Offerings

Special Pricing: $80 per course/per day

 

$104 Billion… that is the amount that foreign buyers invested in U.S. homes last year, and they paid a higher median price than the typical U.S. purchaser and most paid in cash!

You don’t have to leave home to be a part of the global real estate market. International real estate opportunities are everywhere. Foreign investors and buyers continue to purchase in the U.S. because they see the U.S. as a stable and secure destination. More and more U.S. citizens are looking overseas and south to Mexico and Central / South America for vacation homes, rental income properties and places to settle during retirement. The Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation helps you uncover and tap into the global opportunities in your local market and teaches you the skills to serve this growing buyer group. Whether the buyers are from another country, or just another county, discover the global opportunities available for you and realize that your business is without borders!
