Hi Gpindy,

I'll be happy to help I have tons of experience with international buyers. I was one myself before I started practicing RE. Foreign nationals are welcome to purchase real estate in the us with cash or financing. Tax implications come into play when you sell the property but it's good to be aware of when you buy. I can put you in touch with a great accountant that will fill you in on all the details.

If you want to start shopping around and putting offers on homes you will need a proof of funds doc in English. To further discuss details call me 480-236-6069 and please visit my website:

You will certainly want to speak directly with an accountant about this so that you are getting accurate information based on your scenario.

What are the criteria that you have for your new home?

Hello Gpindy -

The only issue you need to be aware of is a potential FIRPTA tax issue if you are not U.S. Citizens. The tax would come into play when you sell the home. For More Info Visit this IRS Page. http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/FIRPT… This is the Foreign Investment in Real Properties Tax Act. If you are a U.S. Citizen absolutely no issues at all and cash would be the easiest or if you want to preserve some cash I can help you get a great loan as well. I would love to help you and your family find a new place to call home. I am a full-time agent here in Scottsdale in my 13th year of practice. I wish you and your family all the best in your home search.

Hi Gpindy

J Byron Hebert said it best Cash is King and there is nothing stopping you from buying a home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Being a cash buyer you are considered the best buyer out there and will be the first offers considered vs. a financed buyer. You can also look into buying a property using financing since interest rates are at an all time low and you might prefer to have that liquid money for emergencies.

You have a few options to consider. I am a Realtor in Scottsdale, Arizona and would love to know more about your situation and help you find the right home.

What are you looking for, what is your budget? Is the money you made off your sale in India in the USA or India?

Feel free to call or email me anytime and I am sure there will be plenty of answers to your question.

As the saying goes Cash is King. If you have the money to purchase the home in full without a loan then there is nothing stopping you from doing this. Many sellers prefer Cash deals because they do not have to worry about the buyers qualifying for a mortgage. As a cash buyer this puts you in a great position to buy a home, many times you can even put in a lower offer on a house and the seller will accept it since they know there is nothing to hold the deal up. Working with a cash buyer is one of the easiest buyers to work with so you should have no problem finding a Realtor who can help your find the perfect home. No need to get a mortgage unless you need or want one.
