Foreign Buyers and Investors

I Work With Many Anna Maria Island Foreign Buyers and Investors That Need Advice and Ask My Advice on How to Purchase Real Estate Here in the United States


As an Anna Maria Island foreign buyers and investors (Foreign national) you may take title to real estate in your own name, in the name of a domestic corporation, a foreign corporation, a limited liability company (LLC), a joint venture, a real estate investment trust (REIT) or a foreign pension plan. Most clients that have bought property here in the Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key area have formed an LLC (Limited liability Corporation).

The main reasons for forming an LLC are lawsuit protection, credibility, tax savings, deductible employee benefits, asset protection, anonymity, the ease of raising capital, creating a separate legal entity for personal protection and a broad range of powers beyond that of Sole Proprietorship, small claims court benefits, separate liability for corporate debts and perpetual duration.


After LLC formation you create a separate legal person. You are a shareholder. You can control the corporation. When your business is sued you can be protected from being sued personally after forming an LLC. Please contact one of the firms below to see how an LLC can benefit you as a purchaser of Real Estate in the United States.

In the US there are few restrictions on International real estate investors, buyers and sellers. The only exceptions concern national security, hostile countries, the purchase or control over federal lands and purchasing a business in a sensitive category.
