If you are a US Citizen, I don't see why that would be a problem. One of my clients who is a resident alien was able to get a mortgage.
Send me an email and I will put you in touch with some local mortgage brokers that have dealt with this before, also let me know what you are looking for and I can email you everything that is currently on the market.
