Hi Sergio:

I have worked with a lot of clients from Brazil (All of them such a joy to work with). The process would be actually very similar to an American Citizen buying a home.

Having said that, you can send me your specific requirements (such as number of beds/baths, price range, location,...) so I can search the entire MLS and forward all of the options to you.

By the way, if you would also like to conduct your own search from a single source that has the entire inventory of homes for sale in Central Florida, you are more than welcome to use our website: http://abidhendi.orlandopropertiesonline.com. This website basically contains the same data base that all the agents use to search for homes.

Have a fantastic day & I look forward to hearing from you.

Bom dia Sergio,

No falo portugues, solamente Español e Ingles, pero comprendo lo necesario y mais importante es que conozco donde encontrar una buena compra para voce.

1. Viajar a Orlando
2. Contactar a un Realtor
3. Ver propiedades ( Buenas solamente)
4. Hacer Oferta con prueba de fondos $$$
6.Cerrar el trato ( Wire Transfer,Closing, Deed, Titulo de Propiedad)
7.Tomar posesion de su nueva Propiedad.

Hola Sergio!
Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday thus far. Send me an email, and I will give you the specifics on the process. Usually, if you are financing you start with getting a letter from the bank telling you the maximum amount you can barrow (this gives you a great point to start with). Every process is different and depends on the individual's situation.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Warm regards,

Good morning Sergio,

I've written a blog on the subject of U.S. homebuying for foreigners based on the questions I've seen here.

Best of luck!

Step #1 is the same everywhere = Visit a loan officer and see if you can borrow money.
