Please contact a loan officer. Now, these days there are many possibilities based on your income, down payment. I know a few good loan officers that can provide you with accurate information. Let me know if I can help!

Hi Amanda:

See more information at with information about lenders in US to foreign nationals:

More of a down payment is required than for traditional mortgages.

Call me with any questions.

You should speak directly with a lender. There are several that will offer terms to you.

There are a number of banks in Phoenix/Scottsdale that will lend to foreign buyers. The normal down payment is 30-35%. If your buyer initially bought with cash but wants to take some money out of the property, several banks in the area can do that.

I have had many foreign national clients. While most pay cash there have been a few that took loans. The foreign national loan product isn't available everywhere, but there a many lender choices. It will typically require 30-35% down. I have some lenders I can recommend if you would like to contact me.
