Добрый день Anton,

As some of the other respondents mentioned, this property likely won't end up selling at the price listed on Trulia. But there are many great deals to be found in San Francisco in 2009.

It is possible to purchase property in the United States, even though you do not live here. The main thing to consider is whether you want to purchase a property using a loan or whether you want to pay cash for the property. An all cash purchase is definitely much simpler, however, loans are available for foreign nationals, although rates are typically higher than they would be for US citizens.

Also, one more thing to keep in mind is that even as a non-resident, you will still have to pay U.S. real estate taxes. And you may be subject to a withholding tax when you sell the property if you do not have a U.S. tax ID number or social security number.

There are many Russian investors buying property in the United States and taking advantage of some of the bargains that are available now. If you are interested in finding out more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,
