In answer to your questions:1) It all depends on the property. There are properties by the beach areas that are on lease land, but most of the properties are on free hold or fee land as we call it here in the US. This means that you are buying both the land and the house or what is called improvement.2) The only requirement is for a foreigner to get an IRS tax ID. This will be your identification in terms of taxes and/or if you are securing a loan.3) There are no legal procedures involved in buying a property. All you need to do is to find a Realtor who can help you. The Realtor's commission is paid by the seller.4) If you are planning to rent out the property, you can have a property management manage your rental property and your Realtor can help you find one.5) The cost of insurance will depend on the location, size and amenities (i.e. pool) of the home. A rental property will be higher though than an owner-occupied home because of additional liabilities involved.In California, there is a 3rd party involved in buying or selling a home which is referred to as escrow. Escrow handles the title and funds.Hope these help.
