This sounds a lot like me and my wife. I've been told by someone who was in the same situation somehting like 6 years ago that it was impossible to get a loan (at first). Then again, I've heard loose reports of IMGs buying houses. If your (future) husband is starting residency this summer, I think there are several of us who'd like to hear how it goes.tlew12778 said:This is a good question bc I have been thinking about this as well. I am American but FH is Italian and when we move to the US, I want to buy a place... only I think he will not qualify for a mortgage bc he has no US credit history. While I could take out the mortgage in my name, we will need his income to qualify for a larger amount.
So... I think we might have to wait a year or 2... enough time for him to get a SSN and a establish a credit history.
I'm not sure about this, but I definitely would like to know the correct answer.
