Mortgage lenders are tougher on a second-home loan application than on a primary-home loan. Also the second-home loan rate is traditionally one-quarter to one-half point higher than those for first residences. The same is true for origination points. Expect the lender to conduct a detailed review of the borrower's income and asset documentation, and the foreign buyer is required to establish a bank account in the United States and make a deposit of the down payment amount into that account in order to obtain a mortgage. The interest rate will be slightly higher than those for U.S. residents, and like U.S. residents, foreign borrowers are charged closing costs on a mortgage which will include lender and third-party fees.

There are different tax situations to consider when buying a first or a second home and securing a mortgage:
• Is this a primary home for your family?
• Is this a second home to rent out to others as a long-term rental?
• Will you use your second home on occasion then rent to others
when not in use?
Through-out this entire process your mortgage lender will be verifying your past and current credit and will re-verify this information again just prior to closing, so here are some important factors to remember...
• Do not change employment without first consulting your mortgage
• Avoid adding new charges to your credit cards prior to closing
• Do not take out any additional loans prior to closing
• Be sure to make all monthly debt payments by the due date
