As Millennials exit states with a higher cost of living, now is the time to invest in U.S. real estate in Texas, Florida, and Colorado.

International Mortgage Specialists

The number of luxury home sales rose 41.6% in the first quarter of 2021. According to Redfin, “luxury” homes sell for an average of $975,000, while “expensive” homes sell for an average of $429,000. Low interest rates and record-low home prices are helping many Americans buy high-end houses. This strategy is also helping millennials avoid expensive cities like San Francisco and New York.

Despite high-end properties that are over the asking price are getting multiple offers, according to Redfin agent Katy Polvorosa.

As we see it, it seems like the right time to invest in U.S. real estate in Texas, Florida, and Colorado. Aside from the higher rental yields, these states can provide improved cash flow to investors.

“This is consistent with what we see in America Mortgages, especially with foreign nationals looking to buy investment properties, mainly in Texas and Florida.”

Texas Real Estate

Due to its diverse economy, Dallas real estate is very attractive for people of all income levels. Its low homeownership rate makes it the perfect place to invest. As interest rates rise, renting is becoming more affordable than buying. The demand for rental units has increased over 14% within the last year, making it perfect for investing in Dallas real estate.

Austin, Texas, is also another excellent place to invest in real estate. In the last 5 years, it has come to be known as another tech hub making its housing market very sizable. Its home values have more than doubled since 2010.

There are tons of high-paying tech jobs in Austin. As Austin is getting older, Millennials will become the largest buyers and renters in 2021, and this trend will continue. We believe investing in Austin real estate is a great market, as there is a huge scarcity of homes for sale in Austin, and more Millenials don’t see a value in owning.

Why should you invest in Texas properties?

The Texas real estate market has plenty of investment properties for sale. The real estate market in Dallas, Austin, and Houston is very active, and volumes of trade are high, and housing stock moves fast. This means it is relatively easy to exit investments and find a buyer for your home.

Florida Real Estate

In 2021, Florida is one of the best places to invest in real estate. This metropolitan area is also one of the most visited tourist attractions in the U.S. There are plenty of opportunities in this real estate market. Investors have a choice of targeting the long-term residential or holiday markets with their properties. Both offer strong returns.

Why invest in Florida Real Estate?

Florida’s real estate market is known to some as the hottest real estate market in the U.S. The housing market in Orlando, Tampa Bay, Lakeland, and Ocala is still growing steadily, with prices remaining low. Properties have a good chance of appreciation in the next couple of years. There is a huge demand for single-family homes in Florida, and with a strong renters market, we think this is a great place to invest in real estate and reap its yields and benefits.

Colorado Real Estate

Colorado Springs is a great place to invest in real estate in 2021. Its robust real estate market has continued to grow at a fast pace.

Colorado Springs’s real estate market is relatively affordable, with a median home price of around $320,000 and a monthly rent of approximately $1,600. Its proximity to Denver will make it more attractive to people looking to buy a home there. It is also important to note that the average home price in Denver in 2018 was $500,000. In short, you can buy two homes in Colorado Springs for the price of one in Denver.

Compared to other states, Colorado Springs has proven to be one of the best places to invest in rental real estate. What better time to do this than now when mortgage rates remain low?

At America Mortgages, we have eliminated many unnecessary steps to create a simple and easy process for our clients. We focus only on U.S. Expats and Foreign Nationals living overseas, and we offer over 150 U.S. bank and lender programs direct to our international clients.

You Don’t Have To Be A U.S. Citizen To Get A U.S. Mortgage.

Foreign national loans for non-residents

US Mortgages for non Residents

Yes, you read that correctly. You don’t have to be a citizen to get a U.S. mortgage.

If you’re a permanent resident alien, you’ll need your green card and your social security number. Your mortgage application process will be very similar to that of U.S. citizens.

If you’re a non-permanent resident alien, you don’t have a green card, but you have a social security number or ITIN. You can finance a home if you produce a work permit (Employment Authorization Document) or special employer-sponsored visa. Lenders must verify that you’ll be able to live and work in the country for at least three years.

Non-U.S. citizens without lawful residency in the U.S. are not eligible for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or FHA home loans. There are two sorts of non-citizen homebuyers in the United States — the resident who wants a primary residence and the non-resident who wants a vacation or investment property in the U.S. Each buyer may finance a property with a foreign national mortgage, but the loans are not alike.

Permanent resident aliens

Both permanent and non-permanent resident aliens can obtain mortgages in America, pretty much like everyone else. They can even get Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac home loans with as little as three percent down once they live in the U.S..

The documentation requirements depend on the borrower’s status.
If you’re a permanent resident alien, you’ll need your green card and your social security number. Your mortgage application process will be very similar to that of U.S. citizens.

Non-permanent resident aliens

Suppose you’re a non-permanent resident alien, meaning you don’t have a green card, but you have a social security number. In that case, you may be able to finance a property if you produce a work permit (Employment Authorization Document) or special employer-sponsored visa.

Lenders must verify that you’ll be able to live and work in the country for at least three years. If your permit is going to expire within a year, your lender must evaluate your likelihood of remaining in the country and decide accordingly.

Foreign national loans for non-residents

Before America Mortgages’ Foreign National Mortgage programs, it was a lot harder for borrowers outside the U.S. to finance second homes or investment properties in the U.S. These are riskier for lenders. Hence, they carry higher interest rates, often above 8%.

Borrowers also used to have to make much larger down payments — on average, 50 percent. However, that has all changed with America Mortgages’s specialized programs.

Two of the most popular programs;

– America Mortgages FNSTATED: This is a perfect program for borrowers that either can’t show the required income for various reasons such as self-employment, lumpy income, or just a privacy concern. This program doesn’t require any income verification, U.S. credit, or residency and has a high LTV of 70 percent.

– America Mortgages FNFull: This is a perfect program for a borrower to show their foreign tax returns and income statements just as a U.S. citizen would. Rates are on par with what a U.S. citizen would pay, and the LTV can go as high as 50 percent without reserves required.

America Mortgages is the ONLY Asia-based U.S.-focused Real Estate financing firm with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. The ability to open an application and close a loan without ever leaving Asia may be unique, but we do it every day.
Borderless mortgages. Easy.

What about U.S. credit scoring?

One challenge foreign borrowers face is the lack of credit history. It can take years to accumulate enough credit history to generate a good score. Or any score.

However, there is help for those with so-called “thin files” or No Credit. America Mortgages can accept either a bank reference letter or a foreign credit report instead of a standard U.S. credit report. This is a unique feature and sets America Mortgages apart from other U.S. based lenders and brokers.

What about U.S. Expats?

Are you a U.S. Expat, files U.S. Taxes but work for a foreign company and don’t receive a W2? Oh, boy! We’ve got a great program for you! Our America Mortgages Expat mortgage program is as easy as walking into your local bank in “Small Town, USA.” We look at your foreign income just as we would if it was paid in USD. Your W2 is offset with other documents, and your loan is processed just as it would if you were in the U.S. It’s that easy! Although it does require sufficient U.S. credit for these programs.

However, if U.S. credit isn’t an option because you’ve been abroad for many years … we have thought of that as well. We have programs for these borrowers as well.

America Mortgages welcomes everyone!

With over 40+ combined years of experience in U.S. mortgage banking and Asia private banking, America Mortgages knows the type of borrowers, their problems and hurdles, and how to resolve these issues in the same time zone, without the learning curve, U.S. based banks/brokers may have. America Mortgages welcomes anyone looking to invest or refinance U.S. Real Estate. We have programs for almost every type of borrower regardless of their passport.

What is the ‘Down Payment’ in a real estate purchase?

advisor mortgage group

Your down payment is the first payment you make on your mortgage loan. For example, if your house is worth $150,000, the lender requires you to pay a portion of that price upfront, called the down payment. Typically, it could be anything between 20% to 50% of the asset’s price. So, at 20%, you have to pay $30,000 in advance to obtain the loan. Most financial institutions make it obligatory for the borrowers to pay the down payment.

You can pay the down payment from your personal savings or other legal sources. This payment for a home purchase is possibly the biggest single cash expenditure in most people’s lives.

To obtain competitive mortgage rates, you’ll need to pay at least 20% to 25% of your home’s purchase price in a down payment. Some financial institutions require the borrowers to pay a mandatory minimum deposit in addition to the down payment.

Mortgages are price-sensitive, so one with a lower down payment has higher risk factors, which will warrant a higher interest rate. Plus, a low down payment can cause you to pay for private mortgage insurance. So, to get the best option at a reasonable interest rate, be prepared to pay out of your pocket in advance.

To get an overseas loan from America Mortgages as a Foreign National, you will be required to pay only 25% in down payment. U.S. Expats get an unbelievably lower rate, which can be as little as 10% in down payment.
