Launched on January 1, 2013, HotelHomes.com is a new global website catering to the needs of high-net worth buyers looking for the world’s most lavish homes. From private islands in the Pacific to skyscraper apartments in New York, HotelHomes.com will highlight those properties with a hotel lifestyle, whether for primary or second homes or investments.
“Real estate may be local,” states Dan August Cordeiro, the founder of HotelHomes.com. “But the luxury market is now global. When a property’s buyer is from around the world and not around the corner, a hotel’s brand becomes an important mark of quality.”
Over 100 residential projects affiliated with major hotel chains are operating at the end of 2012, and another 100 are in development. Increasingly, hotel brands are getting involved in residences to help secure new hotel management assignments while developers enjoy the financing benefits of residences in the hotel development.
For buyers, HotelHomes.com will offer a complete global directory so high-net worth individuals looking for a luxury lifestyle. Visitors may search by hotel brand, location, or different lifestyles such as beach, mountain, marina, golf or historic. Direct links to development websites, specialist agents and properties for sale will make the industry much easier to navigate for busy buyers.
The site’s newsblog will also offer the latest news and articles on new projects, trends and gossip on the sector, including interviews with industry leaders. Industry professionals will also appreciate its Services Directory where one can source top lawyers, architects and consultants to help new projects become realities.
“We are thrilled to launch HotelHomes.com,” according to Cordeiro. “It represents a paradigm shift in how luxury properties will attract the right buyers globally because of their hotel lifestyle instead of those locals already in the market.”
