Global Real Estate: Local Markets
will introduce you to the unique dimensions of international practice. The goal is to make students aware of how the global economy impacts their local real estate markets and prepare them to serve foreign clients and customers.

Global opportunity lies where people least realize – not in large, urban markets known for being magnets to multinational organizations and immigrant communities – but in small, metro, and rural regions. This program will show you how to connect with this client base and help you uncover global opportunities in your local market.

This introductory course will introduce real estate professionals to the basic skills and knowledge necessary to facilitate international real estate transactions, offering an overview of the international real estate business environment, including capital flow, currencies, government regulations and cultures. Topics such as international brokerage, networking, marketing, and selling will also be covered.

About the Certified International Property Specialist Designation (CIPS)
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.

To earn your CIPS designation, you will need to complete two core courses, three elective courses, and submit your designation application demonstrating 100 points of international experience.

Courses are valid for 3 years. Any courses completed more than 3 years prior to the submission of your application must be retaken to receive credit towards the education requirement of the designation.
