Co-Listing in Belize?!!!
A while back, probably 5 months ago, I was contacted about an Eco Friendly Village in Belize. The village looks amazing, like tree houses in the jungle, but with energy efficiencies, nature conservancy and building initiatives in mind. Why was I contacted? Because I’m an EcoBroker, ie Green REALTOR and I happened to be with the same company, which doesn’t hurt.
Thrilled to assist and offer some marketing, I contacted our Office Manager, and the link was added to the home page of our office website here in sunny, desert Scottsdale, Arizona. Plus, I added photos and information about the village on my green site. I’m pretty proud of this green site as I put everything together to offer referral sources for the public for local green trades and helpful information.
Fast forward to this past week. An e-mail showed up in my inbox from someone in Belize who had his waterfront property listed with an agent in Belize. This property is 510 feet and 10 acres of waterfront property for a price of $99,000!
Now John Q Public doesn’t understand the lingo in real estate so he asked if I would co-broke the property. Emailing him that day I explained that I didn’t have a buyer and couldn’t co-broke. That same day an agent in Belize contacted me, explaining the mis-communication, asking if I would co-list this property. Big difference. E-mailing back and forth with specifics, I’m still in awe of this type of situation.
I’ve been to classes and heard stories about co-broking property around the world, but have never experienced this type of co-listing. I’m curious, has anyone ever co-listed a piece of property from across the world?!! Thanks in advance to my wealth of knowledge AR friends!
