Mortgages for Foreign Nationals

Financing for Foreign Buyers in Florida

A foreign national is a legal resident or citizen of another nation. They buy a second home or a vacation home here in the U.S. for personal use.  The foreign national lives in the US property only on a short-term basis. He or she could be here on business, or while on vacation or holiday. Foreign nationals primarily have income, employment, credit, and residency in a country other than the US. Therefore mortgaes for foreign nationals are a bit different than for US citizens. Miami Beach has a very large market for Foreign National's to purchase both Second Homes and Investment Properties.  A Foreign National Loan is a very simple process if you have your documentation in place.
