SARASOTA REAL ESTATE FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS
International buyers of Sarasota real estate will be surprised to find the process can be very easy, if you have the right Realtor helping you.
SARASOTA REAL ESTATE MARKET
HOME BUYER TOOLS
We are in a seller's market. We used to have one busy season for real estate during the winter months, but real estate sales in Sarasota remain consistent now even in the summer months.
If you are from another country, you don't have to worry. You can pay cash or get a mortgage loan, just like a US citizen. There are no extra fees or taxes when you buy a home or a condo/apartment.
You should be as prepared as possible when you are ready to buy, whether you are paying cash or getting a mortgage loan. See below.
All paperwork can be completed electronically from long distance, using today's latest electronic signature tools and technology. You do not need to be here to attend the home inspection or the closing.
FINANCING FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS
Obtaining a mortgage if you are an international buyer is a bit different than for a US citizen.
You do not have to pay any special taxes or fees to obtain a mortgage.
Lenders are getting more competitive, so your downpayment may be lower than in the past. Some banks and lenders may require you open and maintain a deposit account with them, although more recently the major lenders are starting to relax this requirement as well.
Thank you for your patience. You listened to what we were looking for and we are so pleased to have found the right property.

BUYING A CONDO
All Sarasota condo buyers get to review the condominium rules and regulations and financial statement. You have three days to review once you receive the "condo docs", and can withdraw your offer during this period if you find rules or financial information that is unsatisfactory.

When you are buying a Sarasota single family home or condo/apartment, I represent you and not the seller.
Some Sarasota real estate brokers charge an upfront fee to buyers.
I never charge you an advance fee to help you find the right Sarasota condo. I am paid at closing by the seller, for helping to successfully negotiate and close the sale.
