Asked by Dave Taylor, Outside U.S. Thu Jan 31, 2013

I am a Canadian with a US L.P. who would like to buy investment properties in Chicago. I am looking for longterm financing for either commercial or residential real estate. I have good credit, good cash reserves and want to start a relationship with a quality lender. Thanks,

Hi Dave,
I do loans for Foreign Nationals. Investment properties will take a minimum of 40-50% down on this program however. I'd also need to know if you are going to be residing in Canada or the States.

Please give me a call to discuss further, I'd be happy to help you.
