As Bill Mentioned, the main thing that is required for foreign nationals to purchase property here in the United States is a minimum 30% deposit. That is a good thing also because you are automatically eliminating the Purchase Mortgage Insurance (PMI) which most people don't realize they can request to be removed once they reach 20% equity on their property. Being a foreign buyer, regardless of where you are coming from, you are taking advantage of our low U.S. dollar so your currency goes a longer way than it ever did. A great deal of inventory and an what has been a declining market is to your advantage and of course historically low interest rates. I can be further assistance if you can provide me with some of your critieria for your current Real Estate needs. I look forward to helping you and your family MOVE FORWARD and purchasing a piece of paradise here in South East Florida. Congratulations.
