Yes, you can buy a condo without being a permanent resident or citizen, but you would probably have difficulty getting a mortgage for it. However, if you can pay cash you could do it--and would have the additional advantage of being very attractive to a seller. Now is a good time to buy because prices are low and sellers are eager. I would be glad to help you find a place and later on could provide management for a fee based on the gross income. I do not want to put the fee in a public place but we could discuss it if you will call or e-mail me. Please check my web site or Trulia for testimonials from clients: www.ellenfriedman.biz.

I look forward to hearing from you. Ellen

Ryan,

To answer the emotional side of your question, now is a GREAT time to be buying. The housing market is strongly in a buyer's favor and interest rates are at or near historic lows.

To answer the practical side of the question, a loan pre-approval should answer both your questions about rent vs. own, and about availability of credit to you both.

If I can be of further help, don't hesitate to let me know. Mortgage Master is headquartered in Walpole and we are happy to be of service.

Thank you!
