Asked by Derek, Bermuda Dunes, CA Thu Feb 14, 2008

buying a place either in the Hilton Head area or Charleston. If we purchase a place for $400,000; are their places that will finance to a non resident for say $100,000 of the purchase price? We will put down 75% total. Any insight. Now if we could just decide on where to focus our search. Thanks,

Hi Derek. You would be able to find a truly beautiful home for under 300K here in the Smith Mountain Lake VA. area and you would be mortgage free! We are only 60 miles from the NC border, have 4 seasons but mild winters, low taxes, friendly locals and of course a "huge" lake! Take a look at my web site http://www.smithmtnlakeproperties.com for more information. By the way, I'm originally from NY and we are only about 8-9 hours drive away and the same goes to get to Florida from here! Our local airport is in Roanoke Va. which is about 30-45 minutes from the lake, depending on where you live. Best of luck to you and your Brother!

You bet there are. Hilton Head and Charleston are both great places to be. We enjoy visiting Charleston for long weekends, but prefer to live on Hilton Head. Visit my web site to get a better feel of the Island we call Paradise.

Give me a call and let me know how I can help you.

I have brokered a very similar deal with good results. Give me a call and I can explain with ease how this can be accomplished. I am the Managing Partner of a local real estate firm in the Charleston, SC market.
