I am a US Citizen who has worked overseas for the last 14 years. Can I purchase a home in the US?I have been told I can't take out a loan in the USA while working and earning Australian dollars. I would like to rent this house out to my son. An investment property. I have always had a US bank account with a small balance. I would be transferring Aussie $ to US $ for the down payment and the monthly rent will pay for the mortgage.January 31 2012 - Shawnee00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
