They talk about the barriers international buyers often deal with, fostering relationships with these buyers and how technology is changing the market both internationally and locally. Rainy then shares an amusing story about some unintended consequences that come when you are targeting international markets.
She also responds to a listener’s question on if now is a good time to buy investment property with positive cash flow, and if there is anything available in the Bay Area in the $500,000 range.
