I have worked with numerous foreign buyers and would be more than happy to discuss your real estate goals with you.

I have a detailed brochure that explains what non US citizens need to know when buying or selling real estate in the US. Please feel free to email me at leecountyrealtor@earthlink.net if you would like for me to send you a copy.

You will have special tax and titling considerations. I suggest you look for an exclusive buyer broker who is also a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) in the Orlando area.

“The most important thing a buyer can do is first of all work with a buyer broker.” As stated by AARP and the Consumer Federation of America from REALTOR® News.

There is typically no extra/hidden cost for you to obtain Exclusive Buyer Broker services. In the State of Florida only a buyer broker can negotiate for the lowest price and best terms for the buyer. When you work with an Exclusive Buyer Broker, the brokerage firm does not list any homes, there is never a conflict of interest in your transaction. The State of Florida assumes that all buyers know all agents are transactions brokers who do not represent anyone one in the transaction and that the agents have very limited if any liability in the transaction. Unless, an agent or broker tells you they will represent you exclusively the agent is not required to disclose to you that they are a transaction agent or broker.

On my informative homepage http://www.FloridaBuyerBroker.com you will learn about:

21 Critical Mistakes Buyers Make

A buyer broker is required to give the buyer loyalty, confidentiality, care and diligence, accounting, disclosure of all known pertinent facts and your financial status is protected.

The short version is any foreigner can purchase a home in Florida. You can use it as a vacation home while you are visiting (on your visiting visa), or you can lease it as an investment property. You will have to pay local taxes like any other person, if you get rental income you will also have to pay income tax on your earnings. In that case you will have to apply for a tax ID from the federal goverment just to pay taxes.

The home can be rented for long term use (over 7 months to a year) or for short -term rental...just like owning a small hotel you rent for just a week to people vacationing. Of course the last alternative have higher running cost and is not a good idea for everyone.

Owning a home in Florida does not make it easier to get citizenship.

You will be required to bring at least 30% and can posibly get a loan for the other 70%. Purchasing with Cash makes it much simpler process.

I live in the middle of the Disney/Attractions area and sell homes here, both Vacation Resort Homes or Single Family Properties. Feel free to contact me for more details, and you may go into my website and explore all homes available for sale in the area.
