The 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.

Foreigners can buy property in Colombia. The Colombian government allows foreign individuals and entities to acquire real estate in the country, including land, houses, apartments, and commercial properties. The process for purchasing property in Colombia is generally straightforward and transparent.

Foreigners have the same property rights as Colombian citizens and are subject to the same laws and regulations regarding property ownership. There are no restrictions on the number of properties foreigners can own in Colombia.

However, it’s important to note that there are additional steps and considerations for foreigners when purchasing property in Colombia. I recommended working with a local real estate agent and lawyer specializing in real estate transactions to ensure you follow all legal requirements and procedures.

Additionally, it is advisable to consult with a local lawyer to fully understand the legal implications, taxes, and any other requirements related to property ownership and investment in Colombia.

It’s important to note that real estate regulations and processes may change over time, so I always recommended to consult with professionals and staying informed about current regulations when considering purchasing property in Colombia as a foreigner.
