My lender can now financing foreigners for investment properties, based on Asset verification, no income verification. Interest rates are a bit higher.

If you seek commercial properties I have had distressed properties with banks willing to carry paper thus obviating the need to obtain outside financing.

Eugene -

I work directly with one of the top 4 US banks that is currently lending to foreign investors and home buyers, if they have a current relationship with this bank. This bank owns several Canadian banks, so if you live in Canada it is possible that you are indirectly banking with them. They will require a down payment of 30% for loans up to $417,000.

I am a long time native of Scottsdale and very familiar with all Scottsdale neighborhoods and master planned communities. I would be happy to assist you in any way I can.

Hi Rob,

DO you think your lender can help with Non-warrantable Condo purchase in Old Town scottsdale.

Privet Eugene,

No matter how many people THINK foreign persons can finance, its been a long time since I've seen someone qualify for a Foreign National Mortgage. This is especially true since our economy went belly up and all mortgage laws have been re-written.

Have you considered investing in Las Vegas, Nevada?

You can get homes below today's building costs, recently built, with high capitalization rates and amazing ROI, all with low fish and high returns.

Contact me directly to learn more, from purchase and management to sales, and more.

Hi Eugene:

I can help you out. Assuming you are here legally, Fannie Mae's guidelines state:

Fannie Mae purchases and securitizes mortgages made to non–U.S. citizens who are lawful
permanent or non-permanent residents of the United States under the same terms that are
available to U.S. citizens.

You then encounter the different requirements the individual lenders may impose over and above Fannie Mae. This is where you are benefited by working with a mortgage broker or banker, such as myself, as we can look at different lenders to find the one best suited to serve you.

Please get in touch with me at the contact points shown below.

Good morning,
There would be a variety of lenders that could help depending on what you want to achieve.
Most will require a down payment of 30%-50%. Often they have a minimum loan amount. I would
need a little more information to make sure you get to the right lender.
Have a wonderful New Years! I would love to help you find the right property. My email is
Best wishes, Crystal Vetter
