International & Overseas Buyers - Thinking of Buying Property in Central Texas in the US?

Real Estate in the United States is an Attractive & Safe Investment for International Buyers.

 It's almost like American Real Estate is on Sale!

Many countries are enjoying advantageous exhange rates with the U.S. dollar, making investment by overseas buyers in the United States of America an excellent choice.   The United States is a stable environment that has traditionally enjoyed positive real estate appreciation in the past.   Historically, real estate has appreciated in the 5-6% per year range.  

Our Market, here in the Austin, Lake Travis, Lake LBJ and Horseshoe Bay, Texas areas is a perfect location for both residential and investment properties such as condos, waterfront homes, ranches, multifamily projects, commercial buildings and land.   The Texas Hill Country is a beautiful area of rolling hills with many lakes, resort areas, golf courses. tennis facilities & other recreational activiities, many Music Venues, Barbeque and a mild climate in which to enjoy it all!

Buying property in the U.S. is different from buying in the U.K. and other European, Asian, South American, or African countries, for instance.  Before making an offer, you will want to have spoken with a lender or have a letter from your local bank or investment firm indicating appropriate available funds, if paying cash.

Need financing for your purchase? We will assist with finding a lender to help finance your purchase.   There are many lenders who have departments specializing in purchases by International Buyers.   Expect to make at least a 30% downpayment in order to qualify.   And, you will probably need to deposit all the funds required for closing (down payment & closing costs) in a US Bank Account prior to finalizing your purchase. 

We also work with a company that specializes in helping overseas investors with Currently Exchange when bringing money into the US for the purpose of purchasing property.  Contact us for more information about this service.
