Yes, you can buy a home just using your passport as identification you really are who you say you are.
The taxes will be dependent on the size of home, it's location, and its usage. Will you be buying this home to live in, use for vacations, or as a rental property?
You should consult a professional accountant who is familiar with foreign buyers.
I'd love to help you find a home. Just send me an email or give me a call.
If you are here and have cash, you can probably buy a home. Most of the taxes are paid locally and will depend on the location and the property how much you may pay to the city, county or state.
When you sell the home, as a non-resident alien, you may have some of the proceeds withheld for capital gains tax. If by then, you are a resident alien or citizen, you will be able to roll the profits from the sale of your first home into the second without a taxable event (in most cases, I'm not a tax professional).
