    Default Buying a home here, but not an American citizen

    My Uncle wants to buy a bank foreclosed home in Washington, but he lives in India. How difficult would it be for him to purchase a home here???

    If you are a US resident, not being a citizen isn't an issue. It is best to speak with a lender or a real estate professional though regarding this subject especially if it is for a foreign investor. If there are any real estate professionals on this forum, this is your chance.

    Livis is right that if you are a US resident and looking for a home to buy then you can easily get it by contacting any expert real estate agent.He will help you in finding a good house at an affordable price..!!
