We lend to individuals with H series Visa's. If it'll expire within 1 year, and a prior history of residency status renewals exist, then we should be OK with it, if it's over 1 year left then that is fine too. If you are sponsored by a specific employed we wouldn't need an EAD, just a passport & a letter from your employer/sponsor (we need more than just a SS card). I am with FNB Layton, out there in Layton, UT.
Keep in mind that government stimulus has poured trillions into the economy lately which is inflationary, so even slight price increases can be seen in a declining market if the nominal appreciation is less than the rate of increase of the monetary base, it can be very hard to analyse the market in these "stagflation" situations. Anyway the link to the latest stats is below.

Shane did an excellent job of answering your question, I just wanted to chat.
From what I hear, SLC is one of the hardest hit areas of the Country for foreclosures. You should be seeing some really low prices.
Good luck and may God bless
I have some friends here on a B1/B2 visa, who have gotten an ITIN, and are building credit using that number. They should be able to buy a home in a year or so.
