Anyone with the cash can buy a house in the U.S.
Selling the property is another question, as the IRS rules come into play when you sell a property. There may be tax consequences on any gain involved.
But you can buy any house you want. You don't even have to have a Social Security number to buy a house with cash. ---But if you need to get a loan, THAT is another question!
To get a loan in order to purchase a property with it, you will need to be approved by the lender. Each Bank may set it's own rules for making loans. You might find one in Houston that will do it without having a Social Security number, but most lenders will require that. And then the name on your driver's license has to match the name on your Social Security card.
So, ~which will it be? Cash, or a loan?
Contact me for a further consultation. It's free. And I will help you purchase whichever house you wish to buy.
We can inspect the property before you are commited to buy it, and I will help you present an offer to the Seller. I will negotiate for you to get the best deal. I will "represent" you as the Buyer in the transaction. My commission is paid by the seller's broker, so no money out of your pocket!
Hope your New Year brings you a new home for your family! ~Call me!
