Hello Case, some great answers here from the conventional arena. However there is a program available to any buyers including foreign nationals that is a stated program that only requires 10% down, It is currently available in select areas, the first 2 being Myrtle Beach S.C. and here in Florida. We als have a great program for canadians available through a bank in Port Charlotte. I would be happy to provide you with all the details.

Hi Mr. Vanderwel,

I have helped many Canadian and Foreign Buyers because I have International Marketing Specialist designation. There are good ways to buy real estate and bad ways to buy because of tax consequences when you sell. We have a team that can help you. I suggest you talk to our in house Senior Mortgage Loan officer Mr. Jeffrey Robinson at 239-877-4874 - cellular or e-mail: for pre-approval of mortgage that best fits your needs and preferences. Please call me at 239-770-7427 -cell and view my website for my professional experience and services I provide my clients. Thank you.

what exactly are you referring to?

Most foreign national loan program require at least 25% down, a letter from an account, a P&L and tax returns.
Without knowing the particulars, it's difficult to advise.
You're welcome to call us, we specialize in Real Estate and Financing and we will definitely be able to help you.

I have a very detailed brochure for non us citizens buying property here in the US. If you would like a copy of it please feel free to contact me. I also recommend you contact the local RBC as they of course are very familiar with loans to Canadian citizens.
