Hi Marco and Jason

Thanks for the advice. The LLC has not been setup as of now, so its definitely new.... Would it help if there is a personal guarantee on top of the LLC commitment?

Hard money lenders will not make sense in my case as my returns will be lower than their rates

Actually, there are plenty of lenders that handle foreign nationals buying investment homes. The LTV being at 50% or below makes that a very easy loan to pull off.. the only hurtle may be how new the LLC is... if that becomes an issue that these lenders don't want to play with... you may have to look at a hard money lender.. only issue with that is... the interest rates and terms are not so hot.

If you're meaning foreign national you'll find that most of those loans are for primary and 2nd home use only, not rental properties. Closing them in a new LLC also presents another hurdle as the entity would likely not show any income to qualify off of. There may be something out there I'm not thinking of but my guess is your only option is Private Money financing for this until the LLC is more up and running, showing income etc...If i can help with that let me know.

SWBC has an excellent program for just this buyer. The best terms and excellent service. Call Branch Manager Jim McKissick 2103832560 and he can answer any questions you have.

I have had several clients finance with his office and they have all been successful.
