Why Buy a Home in the United States

  • Vacation Home
  • A Home to stay in while doing business in the U.S.
  • A home for your children to stay in while attending college in the U.S.
  • Investment
  • Eventual long-term residence


Qualified foreign buyers with a 30 to 40% down payment usually obtain financing for their U.S. real estate purchase.
Before applying for a mortgage, the foreign buyer must first establish a credit score by opening U.S. bank and credit card accounts. Lenders will also use tax returns to determine how much money they're willing to lend on the purchase of U.S. real estate.

Buying a home in the U.S. does not automatically give a foreign owner legal status to live in the U.S.
