Published on 19th June 2018
Property Skipper, a leading island property search website operating in Bermuda & Guernsey, has expanded its platform to the British Virgin Islands.
The specialist island property search website offers real estate agents in BVI an opportunity to showcase their listings to a local and international audience.
“Our platform generates over 2,000 property enquiries every single month,” says Director of Property Skipper, Peter Goodall.
“The platform was designed to be adaptable to other jurisdictions and we feel that BVI is a perfect location for our continued expansion. It offers agents a low-cost solution to maximise online marketing of their clients’ properties. In fact, we are offering a free trial just for BVI agents as the island continues to rebuild following last years Hurricanes.”
The internet has revolutionised the way homes are being sold and rented.
Increasingly, tech-savvy consumers are starting their property searches online and also demanding their real estate agent maximises their online reach when selling or renting their property.
The 2018 statistics from the NAR (the US National Association of Realtors) show that more than 50 percent of buyers found the home they purchased on the internet.
Property portals, like Property Skipper, greatly assist in providing agents with a low-cost means to reach this ever-growing audience.
Property Skipper aims to provide agents and house hunters in BVI with a one-stop marketing shop that makes home search quick, easy and efficient.
Peter Goodall concluded: “We understand the importance, promotion and professionalism that real estate agents bring to island property transactions, we believe that in partnership with a focussed online marketing service like Property Skipper, we can assist agents in promoting both BVI and BVI property to a new audience. Our service will provide a resource to purchasers that assists in bringing visibility and ease to property search on the island.”
Listings from local agents Coldwell Banker Real Estate BVI and Smiths Gore can already be found on Property Skipper, with listings from RE/MAX Best Priced Properties coming on in the next few days.
