Financing in Orlando>Question Details

Hao Nguyen, Home Buyer in Orlando, FL

Is there possibility for a foreign property investor to borrow 50% of the property price to finance the purchase?

Asked by Hao Nguyen, Orlando, FL Wed Dec 22, 2010

I have read some articles from the property investor magazine subscription today that the US financial institution will lend 50% of the property value ( I do not know which one?). But this would be great since the interest is much lower than in Australia ( at 7-8% pa) and even much better that I can lock in the interest rate for 30 years?!

Yes, 50% LTV is a fairly simple loan to obtain. Talk to YOUR local bank and see what, if anything they can offer.

Many banks have a US presence as well. If that route is fruitless- interview 3 Foreign National Lenders that can demonstrate credibility. Google, Yahoo, MSN Bing, etc are great ways to find what you want.

Hi Hao,

Yes it is definitely possible. We have assisted many foreign nationals with the purchase of a home in Florida. We are currently working with a couple from Norway and I believe they are being required to put 30% down and are allowed to finance the balance.

If you need assistance in finding a property in Florida my wife and I would love to assist you. There are a lot of choices to be made when considering the purchase of a second home or investment property. We can assist you every step of the way from home selection to financing to renting the property while you are not in town. Feel free to visit our website for more info.

Hi Hao,

It is no problem for a foreign investor to borrow 65% to 75% of the purchase price. I have a new Australian real estate investor just like yourself who is purchasing his second property today and he had no problem getting his first mortgage. There is one catch, expect that the minimum loan will be $100,000, which means the minimum purchase will be around $140,000.

Good luck,

Absolutely. You may borrow even more depending on the type of property, how much you have in reserves, etc. There are some requirements to be met such as minimum loan amount, debt to income ratio, and others. Rates vary depending on the type of program selected. Presently helping a client from New Zealand buying in Florida. Call or email me to discuss.
