Permanent resident aliens
Both permanent and non-permanent resident aliens can obtain mortgages in America, pretty much like everyone else. They can even get FHA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac home loans with as little as three percent down.
The documentation requirements depend on the borrower’s status.
If you’re a permanent resident alien, you’ll need your green card and your social security number. Your mortgage application process will be very similar to that of US citizens.
Non-permanent resident aliens
If you’re a non-permanent resident alien, you don’t have a green card, but you have a social security number. You can finance a home if you produce a work permit (Employment Authorization Document) or special employer-sponsored visa.
Lenders must verify that you’ll be able to live and work in the country for at least three years. If your permit is going to expire within a year, your lender must evaluate your likelihood of remaining in the country and decide accordingly.
FHA mortgages for non-resident aliens
The ongoing employment / residency requirement is easier to satisfy with an FHA mortgage. Guidelines state that if you’ve had your visa or work permit renewed at least once, lenders can safely assume that your employment and residency will continue.
If you’ve never renewed your visa or permit before, though, your lender will probably investigate further. It may check with US Citizenship and Immigration Services to get more information about your status, or contact your employer.
Non-resident, non-citizens have Options
Immigrants who are not citizens or residents, but who are refugees or were granted asylum can automatically work here and can obtain financing like a lawful resident alien. They must prove that they are refugees or asylees to be and are eligible for financing
Non-U.S. citizens without lawful residency in the U.S. are not eligible for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or FHA home loans.
Foreign national loans for non-residents
It’s harder for borrowers outside the US to finance second homes here. However, private lenders do offer these mortgages to foreigners. They are riskier for lenders, so they carry higher interest rates. Borrowers also have to make much larger down payments — 30 to 50 percent.
That gives lenders a cushion if foreign borrowers default on their loans.
