However, the difficult arises with establishing â€˜credit historyâ€™. Assuming you have neither US nor Canadian credit history, you will need to fully document past credit and begin to establish a US credit profile.
Beyond generalities, in these cases the details become tremendously important, and there are indeed a number of things you can do before leaving your home country to make the process both easier and faster once you emigrate to the US.
That said, among other reasons, as you are moving to a new country it is likely best for you to rent when you first arrive in the US. If properly aware, in worse case, after 12 months of residency and employment you should have no problem obtaining a US, government insured mortgage loan.

Loans are definately being made to foreign nationals at this time. We understand Wells fargo is doing so with a 30-35% deposit. I'm sure there are others.
Check out their website: http://www.wellsfargo.com
Our buyers have also had success by looking for a branch of their bank in the US. One of our Canadian customers found a branch of his bank in Venice, Fl that would lend money with a much smaller deposit required. Consider looking for this type of opportunity as well.
If you have any interest in Sarasota County, we would be happy to suppor them.
