International Investors eyeing College Station Texas Real Estate

By
Real Estate Agent with BCR (Brazosland Classic Realty)

The e-mail notifying me that he signed my guest book arrived on Monday.  He had visited my website some hours earlier.  In responding to his e-mail, it was apparent that the location was unusual.  It said “...@mail.ru.”  A quick Google search reveal that ".ru" is Russian internet provider.

A reason that “Russia” caught my attention, is that I sold a home to a first time home buyer from Russia, who had a charming accent.  In the e-mail response back to him, I casually asked if he were using a Russian provider.  He responded back that he would like to know “more of his countrymen.”  Am finding out that he is not in the United States...!

Am in the process of corresponding with him.  We will see what he wants to do about purchasing real estate for sale in College Station Texas.  One question he had was if property owners have to hold United States citizenship.  From our real estate principles class, we remember we cannot discriminate on the basis of national origin...etc. 

We will see what he does in the process.  In the meantime, it is nice to know that College Station, which is home to the Fightin’ Texas Aggies (Texas A&M University), is attracting international attention.
