Of course, Indians can buy property here: I have helped several of your countrymen buy property in Manhattan: it is best to concentrate on purchasing condos as these are more investor friendly. I am an experienced broker (more than 30 years at this) and can shepherd you through the process of buying property anticipating all aspects for you.

First, we should discuss your idea of what you might like to buy (a two bedroom apartment perhaps) and discuss neighborhoods (there are some good deals lurking which I can ferret out for you) and time frame (when you might be available to see some places and when you want to make this purchase.)

Oh, and by the way, I have lived in India probably a total of four years in my lifetime: Almora, Varanasi, Mumbai, Chennai, Mussoorie, etc. and hope to revisit your amazing country.

Of course, as long as you have the proper funding you can buy anywhere.

Yeah, of course. The United States is open for business to people from all nations. Please note that owning property doesn't give people the right to residency here, however.

All the best,

Hello Nidhi,

All persons that are financially capable can purchase Real Estate in the United States. All purchasers have to provide proof of funds before a purchase.

It sounds like you may need some guidance as to the various parts of New York. Feel free to call me if you have any questions about neighborhoods in New York City or the suburbs.

Good Luck

Nidhi,
Discrimination is NOT permitted. If you are financially qualified, you can purchase. If you are looking for ab investment property, condos are probably the best way for you to search.
Please contact me for any further information.

Hi Nidhi,

The US will allow you to buy a home in New York. Will you be living in it or will it be an investment property? If it is for investment purposes, you will need to buy a condo which has lenient sublet policies.

Call or email me if you want to discuss further.

Best,

Anu
