You Will need to discuss this with the offshore Bank as to how the process works for you to get the funds here. You need to find out what is required from you to get the funds transferred to you or the seller. You will need something in Writing from the off Shore bank to prove that you can get these funds. There may be other options for you to borrow the funds from a local investment banker.

Contact Lilla she has some experience with this.

It's great to hear you were able to secure a stable job right out of college and are now looking to purchase your first home; must be very exciting! While you could get away with less of down payment, it's most important that your monthly mortgage payment stays within a comfortable range.

I'd like to help you better understand the mortgage process so you're more educated on the subject and can make a more informative decision when it comes time to complete your formal application.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience so we can begin devising a plan of action, essentially ensuring a smooth closing.
