I'm British in America and have bought and sold real estate on both sides of the pond. You will need either a bi-lingual agent or a bi-lingual solicitor who understands the difference in the terminology. For example, a surveyor is not the same thing at all here, and there are other very important differences in the process. Contracts here are very diffferent, and the completion date can be very flexible, a month later than planned and in some instances longer.
I would be more than happy to assist, but not sure if you are interested in my area, which is on the North Fork of Long island, Wine Country. It's a great place for a second home, and an easy place to reach from NYC (Hampton Jitney). You wouldn't get much here for $200K, but happy to look for you and call me regardless if you would like a chat on 631-252-5653.
