Foreign investor seeking adviceI am a foreign investor looking to buy US property as an investment and would like to help on where to start. Some background - my budget is around US$200k and would likely pay cash for it. Seattle is a city I'm familiar with, so this is where I plan to start looking. These are some queries I have and would appreciate it if anyone could shed some light1. I'm thinking of incorporating a company, would it be preferable if it is a US LLC or an LLC incorporated in my home country?2. How long does the whole process take? I would likely to be able to stay for only 7-10 days and I know the closing process takes much longer. How would it work for foreign investors?3. How can I manage the property from afar? If I mandated a firm to manage my property how much would it cost?4. Would it be easier to buy a condo rather than a house? Are there restrictions against foreign corporations buying condos?
