People from all over the world visit San Diego for business as well as pleasure. Some of these foreign nationals spend a significant amount of their time here in the states, away from their home countries. It can be exhausting staying in hotels and various other rental properties. Purchasing a home here in the states can be very appealing for foreign nationals but there can be many roadblocks related to credit and employment. A foreign national portfolio loan from Finance of America is designed to overcome the various obstacles foreign nationals may face when purchasing a property in the US.
One of the most common issues foreign nationals face is that they often do not have a credit score like US citizens do. Credit scores can play a large factor in the traditional loan approval process. Credit reports are still available for many of these individuals, but the scoring system is not the same as it is here. By obtaining and reviewing these credit reports, we are able to assess the credit worthiness of foreign nationals and offer mortgages when other lenders cannot.
Other issues may arise related to employment verification, especially for those foreign nationals who are self-employed. Thorough background checks allow us to verify employment and the existence of companies so that we can offer mortgage loans to these unique individuals.
In some cases, foreign nationals may be seeking investment opportunities in the US, rather than a temporary home. Foreign national loans from Finance of America are available for investment properties up to $2,000,000.
Below are some of the features and benefits of a Foreign National Loan.
- Loan amounts from $200,000 up to $2,000,000
- US Credit Score is not required.
- Investment properties as well as second homes can be purchased
