    Answered . You could try to apply for a B-1 Business visitor category, or better yet, for a B-1/B-2 visa.

    There is no special or specific visa category for what you are trying to undertake. If your country of nationality has an E-2 Treaty with the US, you can then see if you'll qualify for an E-2 Treaty Investor visa, since you purchased the house for rental. Difficult.

    Answered . No, there is really not much that can be done just because you own a home in the U.S. You should discuss all other possible options with an competent and experienced immigration attorney. Perhaps, you have other options.

    This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
