You need some general advice about life in the US.
Call me if you come to town, we can meet in my office and I will be glad to share with you what I know. My husband and I both immigrated to this country and we can give you some insight.
If you are new to the country and so long as your documentation are all in place then building your credit is easy. When you get here, of course sign a lease, then buy a car, apply for secured credit card and so on. But make sure that you maintain them otherwise you will have credit issues.

It is not determined by how much money you have in the bank or by your job.
See the link below that gives you more information on credit scores.
If you have money in the bank, the bank may give you a line of credit or credit card based on your bank account and bank history.
There are ways to obtain home loans in this case, however, you would need to speak with a mortgage broker to see what you would be able to do.
Let me know if I may be of assistance.
All the best,
