Here is what we do for our international foreign buyers when purchase NYC condos as Buying a Manhattan Condominium as International Foreign buyers can be very complicated.

As an International or foreign buyer, Manhattan New York Purchase process is very unique and very different than the rest of the world.

In the state of New York, there is NO COST for you to use the services of a Manhattan New York Condo Buyer’s agent as international foreign buyer. Since each Manhattan New York Real Estate market is unique and very special, we will first have a confidential consultation discuss what you are looking for, the current market condition and specific penthouse availability. 

We are Manhattan New York Real Estate agents that worked with many international foreign buyers.

When we work with an international foreign buyer looking to purchase a Manhattan condominium, we will first explain many nuances of this market place:
1) We do not have lockboxes, therefore all property is shown through appointments only.We usually need 24-48 hours notices to schedule the appointment since there are many people involved in confirming an appointment.
2) Weekend showings usually is more on SUNDAY, not SATURDAYs.
3) The offer is made through Real Estate agents and until the contract is signed by both parties, there is NO actual deal. Even though the seller can 'accept' your offer but there is no guarantee. From 'offer accepted' to actual contract signing, it can be 3 days to 7 days.

When we are working international buyers, we tour our buyers through different neighborhoods and city blocks. By looking through different condo units with us, you will be guided and advised on each property we see together. You as an international foreign buyer will get an overall feel for available condo inventory on the market in Manhattan New York, this way you can then make an educated decision on which Manhattan New York property is going to work best for you and your lifestyle.
