I'm a foreign investor looking for a SF home or Townhouse in Dallas

Asked by rango222, Seattle, WA Sat Dec 7, 2013

Want to invest in low crime rate and good school neighbourhoods. In addition, may need financing (depends on the property). Any advice would be appreciated.

The first step is to get preapproval from a local lender (if you need financing) then work with a local REALTOR to assist you in your home search. A preapproval letter from a lender is required for all offers for real estate in SF (and maybe Dallas?) so that's why it's important to contact a lender first. If you need a referral for a great SF real estate agent, please let me know. I recently worked with a SF agent that helped close a house for one of my clients and she did a fantastic job.

We can help you, but financing is unlikely. You will likely need to pay cash for investment properties in USA. We have some lenders who will lend on investment properties for non-resident clients, but typically the interest rates don't make sense.....something like 30-50% with 9-10-11% interest.

We have many overseas clients and investor clients and willing to help you any way we can.
