Here's the good news, if that house sells quickly it could go for well over list price if your value is remotely correct. If there are multiple offers on that house, only one buyer will win. The others will be looking for another home as similar as possible. Your's will go next.
I had this happen a few years ago, only the other house was listed with someone else. We had been on for a little while at the upper end of the value range as my client was in no hurry to sell. As they were approaching a deadline where they were more motivated, the mirror image floor plan came on the market a few doors down for a significant amount less. My clients were very upset.
In the end, that home had multiple offers. The winning bidder and the seller were happy, but the other bidders came calling to us. We got near list price due to the activity they created and my sellers did fine in the end.
I hope this happens for you too.

I suspect there is much more to this story.

An accomplished REALTOR knows better than to engage those directly related to them, in secondary business.

You can choose to get thing done good, fast and cheap.
Which two did you choose? The one remaining is the cost.

Albenaki91, Yes you can own property in the USA. The important part is how will you pay for it? If cash then the money has to be sourced. Where did it come from? If placed into a bank in the USA it must be "seasoned" in a bank for a minimum of 60 days.

The most important item is how are you paying for it. Most foreigners pay cash. There are foreign national loans. Best to speak with an international bank for further information.

Best regards,

Rodney is correct, this is a Real Estate forum however we are not Lawyers and your question would require legal advice. Your best option is to consult an attorney.
Best of luck!

First determine where you want to buy. For foreign nationals, easy access or major cities are top choices. Second, since the prop would be leased out, a healthy rental market is a must - city with lots of job nearby, low crime rate, decent climate are all important factors to consider.

As for getting a mortgage loan, very few lenders lend to foreigners due to lack of local income and credit. It may still be doable but would probably require a bigger down payment, higher interest rate, and less favorable loan terms in general.
