Visa & Valid Passport

Foreign National mortgage borrowers must have a valid copy of their passport. US Visa is not required normally. You should also check that your country is not listed in OFAC – Office of Foreign Assets Control - Sanctions Programs and Information.

Down Payment

The down payment can range from 30% to 50% depending on the property type, interest rate, and documents that you can can provide. GMG has mortgage programs for non income and income verification.

Interest Rate

US Mortgage Interest Rates for Foreign National borrower vary from the mid 5’s to the low 7’s and are subject to change every day. GMG’s compensation is not based on the rate and borrowers will receive best options available at the time of application.

Bank Statements

The Foreign National or Non US Citizen mortgage borrowers needs to show two months (60 days) of bank statements and to show funds are "seasoned". Seasoned funds simple mean that funds have been in an account, US or Foreign for a minimum of 6o days for AML purposes. U.S. anti-money laundering laws require this.

If the borrower has money in cash, he/she will need to deposit that cash in their bank and let it season two full months.

GMG has loan programs that allow for 100% gift funds for Non US citizen borrowers looking to purchase US Real Estate. Gift funds are money given to you by a family member or friend without expectation of repayment. This money will also require AML seasoning requirements.

Money Reserves

For most programs, reserves are NOT required.

Foreign Credit Report or Bank Reference Letter

For most programs, a foreign credit report or bank reference letter will be required.

Funds in a U.S. bank

The funds for the down payment and closing costs must be in a banking institution for 60 days (seasoned). These funds can be in a US account or non US account. Any bank statements require professional translation.

Minimum Loan Amount $100,000

Unlike regular loans, Foreign National loans do have a minimum loan amount requirement. Remember that it is the loan amount, not the sales price.
