Guide for buying a house in New York as a US citizens or foreigner

US citizens and foreign nationals are able to purchase properties in New York without any restrictions. If you buy an apartment in New York for over $1 million, the state levies a 1% ‘mansion tax’ and some new developments might require the buyer to pay ‘transfer taxes’ that can affect New York property prices. These are levied at 1% for sales under $500,000 and 1.425% for sales above that price by New York City as well as 0.4% for all sales by New York State. For those securing financing for their purchase, a ‘mortgage recording tax’ may also be payable. Foreign sellers may have to pay the Foreign Investment in Real Estate Property Tax (FIRPTA), a levy usually refunded if all taxes have already been paid.
