Can a foreigner buy real estate in Medellin?

Of course, it even makes the process to get a resident visa way easier. When you buy a property in Medellín you have “express” access to your residence visa in Colombia, I say it is express because there are other requirements to meet. We recommend you talk with a lawyer and we can recommend a couple of lawyers with whom we have already made several transactions that can help you with all the paperwork

top realtor in medellinThe process of buying a property in Medellin for a foreigner is almost the same as for a local client, the only thing that changes is the form of payment. For a foreign client, bank credit is impossible (it makes us very angry to say this, but banks do not lend money to foreign clients) several clients have asked us about direct financing from sellers. It could be done sometimes but is also very difficult, but not impossible,  construction companies are more open to this type of financing for the initial fee when a new condominium is being built, but when the property is delivered the remainder of the money must be paid in full.

For a foreigner it is now easier than ever to buy a property in Colombia, the only process that is a bit long and a bit cumbersome is the initial bringing of the funds to Colombia. but I want to be very clear, it is only the initial process, after the account is opened in the trust or company that is going to deal with the nationalization of the funds, the delivery procedures are fast and do not have any problem.

We can help you with these procedures for the legalization of funds to buy a property in Colombia.
