Foreign National Mortgages for Las Vegas Real Estate

Foreign national mortgages for Las Vegas investment properties are back!

Finally there is once again a company which can finance mortgage loans for foreign nationals that want to buy investment real estate in Las Vegas. The minimum down payment is 50% of the appraised value with a minimum loan amount of $100k, so properties purchased must be $200k or greater to meet program guidelines.  The main program requirements are as follows:

LOAN APPLICATON

  1. All foreign properties owned by the borrower must be listed on the Schedule of Real Estate Owned. Verification of mortgage payments, taxes and insurance is required
  2. A three year history of residence and job history is required.

  3. All foreign assets must be converted to US dollars on the application.
  4. Deposits must be sourced properly. If not able to source, then deposit(s) will not be counted.
  5. Business assets and Gift Funds may be allowed on a case by case basis
  6. If a borrower is married, and if full value of joint asset accounts is needed to qualify, then the spouse must be added to the application. Otherwise only 50% of the asset balances can be used for joint accounts.
