While there are many misconceptions about what someone from outside the US can and can't do in Real Estate in America, the process is much simpler, and less complex than in most countries. Many who aren't citizens buy homes every year in the US. The biggest difference is that many banks and mortgage lenders' guidelines differ for foreigners and you may have to present a higher down payment if applying for a mortgage before becoming a citizen. The best thing to do is talk to a qualified, local mortgage professional.
If you'd like assistance with any part of the process, feel free to call.

In the last 6 months, prices have ranged widely anywhere on average from $85-$140 depending on the location, year built, size of home, etc. Newer homes in University Club Plantation subdivision have gone from $136sf -$195sf. I recently listed a house in Village St. George and the homes there are smaller and older and in the last 6 months have pulled around $70-$95sf. Hope this helps.... more
