If not paying all cash, you will first need to get pre-approved for a loan. I can get you in touch with an excellent lender.
Then, once you are out here and ready to move and have a loan pre-approval in place (or the cash ready to go) you can begin looking for homes. It helps if you have an experienced buyers agent on your side - this is at no cost to you, the agent's fees are paid by the seller.
I am very experienced in helping buyers (including those who are new to LA!) find great properties. I would love to help you out. Feel free to contact me at any time!

I would be happy to assist. It would also be much easier if I knew some specifics you are looking for... What is your budget? Also, do you prefer a house or condo/apartment. Bed and bath count. Yard. Kids, pets. That would be enough to get started with... if you havent found an agent to work with yet, I am happy to assist.

In the states you will choose a Realtor to work with you to assist you in obtaining a loan and finding a suitable property that meets your criteria and is in your price range. I would suggest you begin by interviewing some agents first. An excellent buyer agent will help you and advise you so that you purchase is a good one for you.
There's something to consider before you look for a home: Can you afford the home? If you're not putting all cash down, then you'll need to qualify for a loan and that's where I can easily help you. I have a specific program for foreign nationals that is flexible towards income and self employed people, but it requires 50% downpayment.
I suggest you pre-qualify with me before you start looking. Also, if you need a referral, I know plenty of excellent agents. Don't hesitate to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 949-870-2882.
