It is possible. You might want to use a broker who has experience working with international buyers. There are brokers who have training and designations (CIPS) as well as experience in this area. I can refer you to some great agents if needed. There are some specifics involved that you will want to have done correctly in your purchase. Best of success and welcome to the US if you are moving here.
