Help the community by answering this question:


I would purchase in northern virginia because the market is going up and stable.
Government Offices in D.C. and Pentagon is in Virginia. The FED (Government) is in this region.
I hope you understand what that means. And yes, you can invest but would have to go through international investment procedures unless you have a local person that can work on your behalf.
I would work with a local lawyer here and you need an international lawyer your end.

There's no legal requirement that you are a permanent resident or citizen to own a home in the US. Though you don't need a loan, you should know that there are lenders willing to loan to foreign nationals on certain loan programs provided your have steady income
