Buying property from abroad
« on: January 04, 2021, 10:34:06 AM »
Hello all,
I'm in the process of buying a rental property near Chicago, but I'm currently abroad (I'm a US citizen).  I signed the contract via docusign without issue and awaiting for the seller to sign it.

In the meantime, I've got a loan from better.com and all is smooth so far.  Will I eventually need to sign anything other than via docusign?  My attorney mentioned I'll perhaps need a power of attorney.  Will I be able to ship documents from abroad or sign via docusign? Or will I need to setup an appointment at the local US embassy for notary?  Suggestions/thoughts are appreciated.

Curious if anyone knows or has done it before.

Thanks, much appreciated.
