Hi, I just saw your email. Please take a look at our website at http://www.uspropertyportfolio.com for more information. We offer homes from $24k in good blocks, that are already tenanted and renovated. Average net yields are currently 18.78% NET! Homes include one year's free insurance and home warranty as well as all your closing costs. Je parle un peu de francais (de l'ecole!)! Nous sommes aussi a Detroit in Novembre (15/16), si vous voulez visiter et voir les maisons! Regards, Rebecca.

You would probably need a Foreign National Loan that has several requirement. This is loan is directed towards non-US residences that would like a home loan. The minimum down payment allowed is usually around 20%, but this can go up to 40% if you do not have a work visa or green card to provide to the lender. Also, it would be better if you can provide foreign tax returns along with bank statements. These are just some things to have ready if you are considering investing in the United States. I recommend to speak with a lender like myself to help you learn more about what you need. There are lenders like myself that would be happy to speak with you. Well I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 brian.nguyen@nafinc.com

Being an international investor, you most have someone that is knowledgable about all aspects of any real estate market including international investment laws and taxes. If you are purchasing this property as an investment and have plans of turning it into a rental, you will need someone to advise you on the rental rates for the area. You need to be informed about all rental aspect of a property including landlord-tenant law. You also need to think about who will represent and market your property the best and provide you with the most qualified tenant. Acquisition is easy in Detroit, however you will need someone inform you on the day to day status of your property.

Great Lakes Property and Investments not only has licensed realtors that know the market, but we are a property management company. We assist are clients starting with acquisition all the way to rent collection.

Hi Jack-Moi,

My name is Ian Watts and I work with investors all over the world. Below, I have included a link to my free ebook written for international investors. It will provide the specific steps for you and help you avoid the pitfalls of purchasing property here.

You will probably find that the process is relatively simple if you find the right local partner with experience. Just yesterday I sold a home to a client in Thailand and she was very excited with how smooth I was able to make things for her.

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions. But, PLEASE do take the time to read the book, as it will really help you avoid being taken advantage of.
