Yes, it is possible; however the lending guidelines are strict and require 50% down payment on most programs. There are other loan options with less down payment, too much to type best thing would be to call or email to discuss further in-depth.

I have a beautiful apt for sale close to UCLA for a great price if you would like to see it.

Yes there are ways in which you can make the purchase. There are also lender that will finance foreign buyers, though the loan to value ratios will be lower than usual, expect to put down 35-40% plus closing costs.

If this is something you'd like to explore further, connect with me.

Yes, a non-resident can purchase property in the United States. There are many options and some of my colleagues in the industry have below have provided you some great information. I've advised F1 and J1 students from SMC, CSUN, USC, and Pepperdine in regards to this matter. Feel free to contact me.
