International students’ parents buy Manhattan NYC Condos

Many of our foreign buyers are parents of International students from Europe, Asia, Canada, Latin America and other countries. Other than many career and investment opportunities, Manhattan New York has many distinguish universities and colleges that offers many international students undergraduate and graduate degrees. We helped many parents of international students from New York university, Parsons school of Art and Design, School of Visual Arts (SVA), Columbia University, the Jillard school, Cooper Union and other academic institutions.

Here are some options for international students and the parents to consider:
School dormitory: If the student is very young and new to New York, the first year or first 6 months they usually stay in the dormitory so they can familiarize themselves with the city. This option is usually more expensive than renting an non-dorm apartment in the school surrounding areas.

Renting an non-dorm apartment: This option costs slightly less than dormitory, although as an International student or foreigner, majority landlords requires extra security deposit sometimes up to 6 months of rent upfront to 12 months rent to establish relationship and security. If the student or parents do not have United States social security number, nor US credit history, the parents usually have to pay for one year upfront to obtain an rental apartment.
