Your home. Their language.
Whether they’re in Beijing, Bangkok or Beverly Hills, when international buyers look online for a home in LA, they search in their language. And our properties will be there.
Compass maintains 20 international websites, each dedicated to its own language. Because the machine translation commonly seen on other real estate websites is invisible to search engines, we hire experts to carefully translate key content. This allows search engines to identify and index our pages. This indexed content gives our properties the highest SEO rankings, and allows our listings to be suggested to users searching in a specific language for properties in specific locations.
Users can automatically convert measurements to metric, and see prices in the currency they choose, with exchange rates updated continuously from the currency markets. They can also save properties of interest in a private account, get alerts on them, and use our simple social sharing links to tell their friends about them — all in their preferred language.
You can see a property on the global sites by simply clicking CHANGE LANGUAGE on the property page.
Here are links to our global sites:
