If I own a property in Worcester area, fully paid. May I leverage to get some cash out as a foreigner (Australian)? and whats the rate?Thanks

We are moving from Canada on a J-1 visa, so my wife can do a post-doc at UMass. With a 20% down, would we be able to get a mortgage?
How long are you staying? It's possible but perhaps not practical depending on your planned length of stay here.
