The answer is a resounding "YES!" As a matter of fact, one of the fastest growing demographics among home buyers in Atlanta are non-citizens. If you would like further information, please feel free to give me a call or email me through the website below. Thanks!

Yes, Ally, you can buy a house in atl. I just bought a few this month for an expat. The prosedures is the same as you are an U.S. citizen. But there are some tax implications to buy as an expat depending on whether you buy it as an investment or to live in there. I'll be happy to share my exprience with you if you want.

The answer would be yes! The question to you is are you a EXPAT currently living in the USA, are you filing taxes in the US or are you still considered a foreign national. In either case their are loans for these situations and I do work with the right lenders to help you with your home purchase. Lets talk about it. You may reach me at saroza@msn.com.

Ally the answer is yes you can, and the prosedure and qualifications are based on your status and your intent. For instance are you planning on living in the home you are purchasing or are you buying for investment? Can you verify income? These are questions needs to be answered before a mortgage lender can answer. If you are looking for a real estate agent to assist you please consider me. Good luck.
