You just need your ID or passport and a bank statement to show available funds to buy all cash.

Hi! Thanks for your inquiry. The documents needed can either be minimal or somewhat extensive depending on whether you're purchasing cash or needing finance. Below I've included as a reference tool the link to our introduction to the South Florida Real Estate Process guide for international buyers. Feel free to email or call should you have further questions.

I just closed on a house with a buyer from Brazil and we had a uneventful closing. The documentation was minimal and the transaction went off smoothly. Let me know if I may be of service as I can replicate that experience for you.

You just need 2 photo id's and proof of funds. In most cases, if you are looking to finance you will need to have 20% or greater to put down. HSBC bank is excellent. They make it really easy for foreign buyers. Below is a link to HSBC.

The requirements depends if you are a US citizen or a foreign investor. If you are a US citizen or resident all you need is 2 forms of picture ID and a bank account. If you are a foreign investor you can email me at alexandriamonge@gmail.com87 so i can send you the requirements the lender that I use has for its programs.
