FAQ from Foreigner Buyers

By
Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate

I often have this question from foreigner buyers.

我不是美国公民, 没有美国绿卡, 也没有美国的社会安全号码, 更没有美国信用历史, 仍然能购买美国的房地产吗?

答案是可以. 首先, 你必须有足够的流动资金付首款(Down  Payment)和房屋过户费用(Closing Costs).第二, 你需要想办法在美国开银行户头.如果您有高财富人士的私人银行服务(Private Banking)在美国之外也可以. 如有100万美元以上的资产, 您可在大型的国际金融公司或银行中申请开设此类服务, 私人银行服务最主要的是资产管理, 规划投资.  如国际银行UBS, 大通银行JP Morgan Chase, 花旗银行Citi Bank和汇丰银行HSBC等.  第三, 外国人可以买房, 但一般必须由公寓大楼的委员会BOARD 批准同意. 非美国籍的外国人(非美国公民也没美国绿卡)在卖出地产时, 必须交付相当于卖价10%的联邦税, 在纽约州, 外籍人付赢利部分8.97%的纽约州税.
