Globrix, the UK based, News International backed real estate search site announced this week it will be making the move in to the United States in early 2009.
According to the article on GlobalEdge, Globrix expects to bring its free-to-list business model to US Realtors looking to feature properties to overseas buyers and already has (unnamed) US partners in place. The Globrix Blog confirms these plans.
Globrix is currently one of my favorite international property search portals (see Globrix Takes Aim at UK Property Listings), mainly due to its clean interface and super speedy search results. I’m looking forward to seeing whether this move will shake up the relatively static nature of the US search scene.
It also remains to be seen whether US brokers and agents will embrace yet another destination to syndicate their listings to – but the international angle that Globrix brings might very well be enough to push them over the edge.
