I'm planning a real estate purchase in the US and will need to move $100k+ from multiple accounts I own in France to the US. Can someone advise on the best way to do this to minimize fees and delays?

  • Should I consolidate the EUR accounts in France first before making one big transfer into USD? Or make separate transfers into the US?

  • Should I just use my bank's international transfer service or is there a better way to transfer, like a company specializing in low cost foreign transfers?

  • In the US, should I receive the funds in my bank first and then wire them to the escrow account for the real estate purchase, or should I wire directly from France into the US escrow account?

  • Is there going to be a lot of paperwork involved? The France accounts are in my name and have been declared on my US tax returns for years already.

Thanks in advance for any tips!
