Good evening Miryam,

Yes you can, and Navy Federal will help you, even though they're far away. I've just closed a couple of deals with Navy Federal ~ one office in Vienna VA and the other in Pensecola FL. They know how to structure the loan for you and I know how to help with the real estate side.

I've talked to you through Trulia before ~ call me anytime at 904-343-8586.

Take care,

Hello Miryam.......good question.......yes.......you can buy a home here in Jacksonville. Your credit union in Italy should be able to guide you as to securing the morgage.........your husband may need to be on the mortgage, which the credit union will handle as needed to qualify. There are many homes from which to choose...this is a fantastic time to find a great home at a very reasonable price. Contact a realtor who listens...who knows the market...who will communicate with you in "real time"....and will tell you about the area, etc. My son, Hickory, and I are available at any time....we will be thrilled to assist you in this proposed purchase or provide information at any time. Jacksonville is a great place...looking forward to meeting you in the future.

Hi Miryam!

You may be able to use a portfolio loan.

I work with a company that recognizes credit reports from other countries.

If you wish to learn more please contact me directly.

Best Regards,

Yes you can purchase a home here in the Jacksonville area. You will need to secure financing in Italy or work with a lender here in the area to get financing approval (I can recommend one if you like). As an Accredited Buyer's Agent (ABR) I have worked with families from Europe successfully purchase a home here in the area. I can be reached at 904-571-1358 or email yourrealtor@att.net . Understanding the 6 hour time difference I am usually available around 7 AM EST should you like to call or provide a number in Italy and a time to call.

Talk with lender first, need to be pre-approved in this market and then find a local agent to help.
