Hello Doug, you seem to have a lot of quality listings and probably have a somewhat good marketing budget. If you want to reach out to investors in Europe, I would either advertise in their national newspapers (hard copy or online) or attend real estate seminars such Sima in Madrid or Expo Real in Germany to connect with them. I noticed that many European investors like to use a rule of thumb of 10% annual returns on their investment. If you want to reach out to investors in South America, I recommend affiliating with realtors in those countries who will present the deals to their clients. Hope this helps.

Hi Doug, the easiest way is to co-list your property with another broker that has access to international network/offices. another way is by joining international real estate communities (fiabci, etc.)
