AR Going International? Why Not?

I have an idea:  why don't we invite some agents from other continents and other countries to join AR? 

 

Terry Kuehn's article about the World Real Estate Market:  "Ireland, Spain, Australia and Britain all beat us" inspired this idea. 

 

I recently wrote a blog entitled:  "Show us Your Market!  Amazing Comparison!!!  You Have to See This!" after my trip to the Hamptons and my introduction to a $ 75,000,000 listing there (Yes, you read right: 75 million dollars!!!).  

 

I invited my readers to reveal what the $ 400,000 budget and the million dollar budget would garner in their respective markets.  Our wonderful AR members, generous as usual, have shared prices and pictures, making the comments escalate the value of that blog from "fair" to "outstanding". 

 

I very much enjoyed learning what the dollar can command in various parts of America (USA and Canada; what the heck, we are but one country, except for they have a better health care system).  It was quite an education.  Now I'm wondering about the Real Estate prices in the rest of the World. 

 

Inviting members from other countries would be easy enough:  a five minute Internet search in the country of your choice and a few invites to specific agents.  Most people speak English, even in the far reaching corners of the World ("The World is Flat", remember?), not to mention that many of us here are bilingual.  I could invite members from Romania, since I am fluent in Romanian.  Or we could use Google Translator and convey whatever message we want to put on the AR Invite.  So what do you say?  Are you game?  Let's go International!

 

AR Rocks!  ...Worldwide!  Let's do it!

 

PS:  The fringe benefit is that it might actually garner us some International clients...  Not too shabby!
