If you are looking for a property management company, that can help you take care of your home until you return, I know of one in Bowie (if that is the general area where you were thinking of purchasing). Buying now, rather than waiting may turn out to be a great move, as the market has turned a corner and prices as well as interest rates are sure to go up soon.

Thank you for your service to our country and for helping to keep us safe and secure here in the U.S. I really appreciate it!
I am a Maryland lender who is familiar with the VA loan as well as Conventional financing. I would be honored to help you get a home here in Maryland.
You can go to my online link: http://www.loansbycatherine.com and fill in your information and I will run numbers for you and let you know what programs are available to you.
Thanks to technology, you can purchase a home here in the U.S. and we can communicate via e-mail and transmit documents through secure transmission. If you are not planning on coming to the U.S. to pick the property out or if you are not planning on being here for settlement, then perhaps your mother can act as Power of Attorney or you can choose another designated person to sign for you. Documents can be transmitted to you via electronic secure transmission for your review prior to settlement.
I would be happy to send you a book on the home buying process if you send me your address. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to helping you in any way that I can!
Thank you again for your service!!!
Yes you have options. One specific credit union in the area offers a conventional product that mirrors the terms of a VA loan, including no PMI. Message me and I'll be happy to assist. We've assisted many clients who are either overseas or out of state. And, our team specializes in military home sales and purchases near Fort Meade. It would be our honor to help you find your home!
Thank you for your service to our country. Is your wife with you in Japan? Could she move into the home before you do? There are non occupancy loans but not for VA on a purchase. Either you or your wife would have to move in within 60 days if you use a VA loan. Your mother can't be on a VA loan with you, only your wife. You mother could get a power of attorney to sign for you at settlement though so you don't have to be stateside. Let me know any further questions. I specialize in VA loans and can provide referrals from veterans all over the country to the quality of work we provide here at 1st Mariner. Hope this was helpful.
