QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 12, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Publimaison.ca announced the official launch today of its new International properties section, a portal through which Quebecers wishing to rent or buy real estate can effortlessly access more than 193,000 properties in over 133 countries.
"A growing number of Quebecers are buying or renting properties outside of this country, especially in the U.S., either for vacation rentals or as foreign investments. We decided to add an International section in order to meet this continued increase in demand," explained Marie-Lyne Genest, Director of Marketing at Publimaison.ca.
This new service is a logical fit with Publimaison's philosophy, as the company seeks to set up a one-stop shop for offers from individuals, brokers and residential builders, all of which can be accessed through the same platform. "Publimaison currently presents all listed offers to its clients, but we had a sense that many users want access to a wider range of properties," continued Ms. Genest. "Since our objective was to create a handy search engine that everyone will find easy to use, we settled on map-based searches," she added. The user searches first by country and then by city, and then looks for properties, reads descriptions, sees photos and gets useful information such as price and the seller's contact information. They can even choose between pricing in Canadian or foreign currency, based on individual preferences.
Adding this new service makes Publimaison the first independent real estate site in Quebec to offer its residents an international section. The company has thus created Quebec's leading real estate portal, thereby strengthening its leadership position in this market with almost 227,000 property listings – 193,000 around the globe and approximately 33,000 in Quebec.
