Re/Max Fine Properties
It would be pretty hard to get LSR, credit history is critical. What is your price range?
What part of Scottsdale?. In Scottsdale there is a wide price range. I had dealt with non US citizen, paying cash, closing without any problems.
I have worked with many out of country buyes who where not us citizens and have not had a problem getting an LSR for a contract.Keep in mind as well that a contract without and LSR can still be submitted granted the other agent accepts the contract without it. Believe me I have seen many of these and all have gone through successfully.I would be glad to consult with our in house lender to see that you get your lsr for your purchase.Often times as well a letter from your financila institution can suffice if you are unable to get the lsr. I would be glad to help. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a fellow Brit having moved to the UK 6 years ago from Horsham, West Sussex. I am a REALTOR. My position is slightly different to yours because my wife is a nurse and, as a result, we managed to obtain green cards. At the time we purchased our house in AZ whilst still resident in the UK. The lender used our UK past income and projections from my wife's future position in AZ. Things have changed since then and, as you know, it is far more difficult to get a mortgage for everyone.
See if you can borrow money in the UK for a purchase here. Otherwise I can put you in touch with several aggressive lenders who might be able to assist. Either way you should use a buyer's agent in my opinion as the house purchase process in AZ is very different to the UK. I would be delighted to help if I can. My email address is email@example.com. I am happy to answer specific or general questions.
By the way, I am still a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors which might be of interest. I currently have clients (a nurse) in Kilsyth who is trying to move here on a permanent basis. The immigration service is very slow at present so it is very frustrating for them.
Why not finance in the UK and pay cash for a home here? That's what my foreign national clients do.
I would live to help you professionally, but I am not allowed to solicit (we're not supposed to post out e mail address of phone numbers asking you to contact us because it's against Trulia guide lines)
Best of luck to you,

I think that you're going to run into difficulties. I am British and have been in the US for 10 years. I have been in real estate for the last 3 years. It took us a year before we could buy over here. When I deal with British relocation clients (that have come over with large corporations) they also have problems getting a mortgage over here because they have no credit history over here.
We bought a vacation home in Florida about 5 years ago with my parents (who still live in the UK). The only way that they could get around this problem was by obtaining their mortgage in the UK: they refinanced their UK home and used the money over here.
Hope this helps - it's just what I've experienced personally.
If you are working with a REALTOR have they suggested a lender you might use? I always have 3 good lenders to recommend to my clients.
If you need to know the names of the lenders I can refer you then email me at Donald@TheKeysTeam.com
I hope this helps.
