  1. Washington Square is another condominium development in downtown Bellevue that is not included on this list.

  2. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Thanks for the reminder about Washington Square.

  3. Mark Yu says:

    I just would like to inquire if foreigners can buy and own condominiums there in Seattle? Want to compare it here in the Philippines where condominiums are the only real estate property that any investor (foreign/local) can legally acquire and own.

  4. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Mark, yes foreigners may purchase property (condos, single family, etc) in the U.S. However, there are caveats to that, particularly if the buyer is financing the purchase through a U.S. financial institution.

    If the buyer/investor is a non-resident foreigner without U.S. credit history or bank account, most U.S. banks will not finance the purchase. Fortunately, there is at least one Seattle-based bank that can provide a loan to non-resident foreigners, but it’ll require a substantial down payment, among other qualifications.
