 Understanding the Process

Whether you are an international investor, a Canadian snowbird or a first–generation living in the United States, purchasing in an unfamiliar market can be daunting. Our initial goal is to ensure you fully understand the process for purchasing real estate in the United States and that you are comfortable with each step needed to complete the transaction.  Once that has been established we begin the search for your ideal home in South Florida. Although the process for property transfers are similar between the United States and Canada, they differ on how the transactions are completed. Our steps of a sale will show you the process of a real estate transaction in the U.S.

Things to Think About when Purchasing Property in the United States

1. How will the property be used? Vacation Home? Investment opportunity? Primary Residence while you study or work?

2. Have you bought or sold a property before in the United States? Are you familiar with the process?

3. How will you pay for the property? Are you going to apply for a U.S. Mortgage? Where are your funds located? Do you have an ITIN number?

4. Have you consulted with a lawyer and/or tax consultant?
