Loans for foreigners to buy in New York?

Asked by Matias, Outside U.S. Wed Jun 26, 2013

Hi community, I recently bought a condo in Miami, which I payed cash.

Now I'm planning to buy a second property in the city of NY as investment, but this time I'd need a loan.

I was thinking about buying an apartment which allows me to pay the monthly costs I'd have (interests, taxes, hoa fees, etc.) and which could still produce a net income of around USD 600/month. I could make a down payment of around 80k.

In this regard, and considering that I'm not a US citizen nor resident, I need to know if I could qualify for a loan in the US. If so the case, I'd also need an agent to assist me during the whole process (getting the loan, selecting and buying the property, managing the unit, etc.).

Looking forward to your advices.
