We recently found a Canadian bank branch in the Sarasota/Venice area which was a great help for our customers. Don't rule our banking branches or banks that have agreements with banking institutions in your country.
Hope this helps,

World Bank (Wachovia) does a lot of financing for foreign buyers. I would start there. Some of the other banks probably do financing also. Just be aware that your interest rate may be higher, as a foreign buyer because the lender feels they need to protect themselves. But, as an investor from Europe or Canada, your money is worth twice as much as our dollar right now, so really, it is not so bad. .
