Welcome to the International and Foreign National Home Buyer’s section of our website, where we discuss in clear but complete detail what you want and need to know about buying a home in Rhode Island and South Eastern Massachusetts if you are a FOREIGN NATIONAL before you start browsing the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for the homes available in your desired area. This site covers the New England area of the East Coast of the United States, particularly Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, where waterfront properties are available at highly competitive prices, given the current exchange rate of the US Dollar.
Some things are the same for any home buyer, but some issues are specific to buyers from foreign countries, especially as regards currency exchange rates, home values, comparative real estate market trends, credit, credit scores, and financing issues in general.
On this site, you will find everything from a Home Buyers Checklist to articles dealing with loans and financing, credit issues, budgets, inspections, real estate listings, and more. You will also find topics of special consideration for foreign real estate buyers who wish to purchase real estate in the United States. We continuously update this site, so please check back often.
This section is dedicated to international real estate buyers who are foreign nationals, and to US citizens who have resided abroad for many years. There are some important considerations you must take into account if you are to purchase real estate in the United States of America.
Some of these considerations include establishing credit in the United States, credit score issues, the real estate market, and the process of purchasing real estate as a foreign national.
Understanding Exchange Rates
Again, this section is still being compiled, so check back frequently for new additions to the section. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us via telephone at 401-293-0631 to speak to Mandie Sullivan, herself a citizen of the United Kingdom, and our President, or use our contact form here.
There is a difference between working with a sellers agent and having your own representation with an exclusive home buyers agent. See our section on Buyers Agency, and our section on standard real estate agency.
