    Answered . No, buying property alone will NOT give him a green card. An investor's visa is possible if his home country is a treaty country, and if he invests a significant amount in starting a business in the US that will benefit the US not just the investor and the investor's family. Good luck.

    Answered . He could qualify for permanent residence by investing $1M into a new U.S. business that creates employment for 10 U.S. citizens or residents or about $530 in certain Pilot Programs. You should consult with an immigration attorney specializing in EB-5 investor matters if this might be an option.
