You might try reading through some of the old threads here that deal with the requirements for foreign citizens buying in the US. Or you can add more information here and someone will probably reply.

Definitely not enough information. If he doesn't have a social security number, and he wants to finance, he will need an ITIN number.

You haven't really given the folks on here enough to work with. Is your uncle a cash buyer? Does he want to use the property as a rental? A vacation home?
