I am a broker in NYC and yes, i know the "in's and out's" of helping a foreigner purchasing a property in the city. To tell you the truth, the amount of foreigners buying property in NYC either for investment purposes or to live in, makes up a large portion of the buyers market. Whether its how to transfer your funds, handling financing, and finding the property, I can help you with your needs.

The main difference between NYC and any other market is the fact that the bulk of the properties in New York are coops and not condos. So you do not buy the property, but shares in the cooperative corporation (or LLC). The other consequence of this structure is that coop boards set certain financial requirements that differ from one building to another and also have an approval and interview process of prospective purchasers.
This makes buying in NYC more complicated than elsewhere.
I am an attorney (I also have a broker's license) and have lived abroad a good part of my life. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have.

Buying a home is probably the largest and most difficult financial and emotional decision you will ever make. The New York real estate market is especially challenging to navigate and is unique in many ways. Therefore, it is important you are confident the broker you are chosing will provide you with the most accurate market information, is attentive to your needs and desires and will help you make sound decisions.
You want to find a broker who understands both the specific neighborhood that you are interested in as well as the particular needs of a foreign buyer.
Having lived and worked in many countries, I consider myself a â€œcitizen of the worldâ€ and have a keen understanding of the special needs and wants of an international clientele. I work with many different foreign buyers and I'd be happy to talk to you about your specific needs and wants.
The company I am working with, BOND New York, is the fastest growing real estate company in Manhattan. It has a sales force of over 400 licensed salespeople in 5 Manhattan offices and is Manhattanâ€™s largest independently owned firm. The Manhattan real estate market has the highest concentration of international investors in the United States, more so than Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston or Washington D.C.
If you wish to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will try to connect you with those who handle foreign purchases.
