International Home Buyers Attracted to Sarasota

Sarasota is very attractive to international home-buyers.  Foreigners visit during the winter, decide they want to stay, and begin the process of finding a way to do so legally and purchase a home.  Many times, Sarasota real-estate agents are the first professional point of contact for these immigrants.  While very knowledgeable about the Sarasota real estate market, they are not always equipped to inform their clients on the finer points of immigration law.

We want Sarasota to continue to be an attractive location for immigration.  Immigrants bring a richness of diversity and entrepreneurial spirit that keeps this area vibrant.  For examples read about how Nayda Cattin is opening our skies, or how Chris Coutelle is expanding our palettes.  We want our local real estate agents to be well-informed about immigration law.  That way, not only can they be more likely to succeed in procuring a home for an international prospect, but the area can benefit from a continual influx of diverse investors and job-creators.

Informing Sarasota Real Estate Agents

On October 18th, 2012, Sarasota Immigration Attorney Chris Jaensch spoke at the International 301 seminar.  The Sarasota Association of Realtors (SAR) organized it with around 40 realtors from across the region attending.  During this seminar, which was SAR’s last educational seminar of the year, attendees split in to groups to listen to individual panelists present case studies.  Chris’s case study followed a hypothetical family from Australia.  The “father” is a successful businessman and the “daughter” is an excellent tennis player.  The family is looking for ways to move to the Sarasota-Bradenton area but still maintain ties to Australia.  As it turns out, there are quite a few options in immigration law for doing so.

Please enjoy a video recording of Chris speaking at the seminar below.

We hope that this information helps local real estate agents as they continue to entice international home-buyers to call the Sarasota-Bradenton area home.
