You are currently a non-permanent resident alien, if I have this correct, and you may be able to qualify with that status so long as we can document history of income, assets and credit. The length of time left on your visa, in and of itself, should not be an issue so long as there has been a prior history of renewals. If there is no prior record of renewal, we will work to determine the likelihood of renewal by way of your employer or the USCIS.

If you have questions or would like to look into this further, just let me know. RPM is headquartered in Alamo and I work out of the Mill Valley office.

You would need 30% down on this transaction and be fine to purchase.

Yes you would be ok. That is only if you are trying to get a loan. If you are buying it all with cash then it does not matter. If you want to get pre-approved I would be more than happy to help you.

Most lenders will allow a loan with an HB1 visa as long as you have established credit. I have a couple of clients that did within the couple of years. Feel free to contact me if you would like the lender information.
