The requirements are the same for a non US citizen for the actual purchase. Financing would be different. When you go to sell your property a tax of approximately 10 percent would be held back (each state may have their own hold back rules some may be 20 percent) a good question to ask your Realtor if they don't know move on to the next one because they have not dealt with non US citizens before.

All traditional mortgages (i.e. FHA, VA, USDA and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac for Conventional) are going to require a certain citizenship status. You must be either a US Citizen, a Permanent Resident Alien, or a Non-Resident Alien. A Non-Resident Alien will require only certain Visa statuses and additional requirements.

You must have a verified 24 month employment history with 2 years of US filed Federal Income tax returns. A US credit history is also required. Anyone not meeting these definitions would likely be considered a Foreign National.
