Yes, foreigners can buy real estate without a Social Security number. However, this requires a down payment of about 30% of the purchase price. The average home in New Rochelle sells for $600,000.+ This means you need a down payment of about $180,000.

As a former realtor and local resident, you should consider a 2 - 3 bedroom co-op for $250,000. and 30% would = $75,000.

You also need cash to pay for closing costs.
