Hey everyone. I live in Jamaica. I really am interested in buying a rental property in the United State. Can anyone provide me with any information on how I go about purchasing my first property?? In the U.S.A.
Welcome to Biggerpockets!
Are you trying to buy pure cash or finance the properties? What are you goals?
We buy and hold investors. We use our transient life style (active duty military) as a bonus. We buy class A personals and rent them out when we leave along with being pure rentals.
Being a non-US citizen you are going to have unique challenges. I recommend you check out the Blogs, Podcasts and forums. Biggerpockets community is truly awesome through their diversity (buy and hold, wholesalers, bird dogs, commerce, developers, flippers, agents, etc). There are also tons of nationalities. Hopefully you can find other who are trying to do the same thing you are doing.
Another unique resource is peoples personal blogs/websites that can be found in the signature. Within the above "groups" everyone has create their own niches. Many of us have create a website/blog giving more information about our model, etc. Ours is about buy and hold rentals, self management from a distance and operating on smaller margins.
Look forward to seeing you around Biggerpockets!
