I'm a foreign professional working in finance field in Chicago. I'm thinking of buying a 1 bedroom condo around or less than $250k. I'm not buying for commercial use, but buying to live there myself.
I went to university within USA, began working from July 2011. Just got SSN when I started working, so I don't have a good track record for credit scores. But I do have regular income of 60K and bonus income of 50K to 100K.
1. Is it possible for me to buy a condo?
2. If so, Is it possible to get a good mortgage rate without a co-signer?
3. Are there any further complications for me apart from regular buying procedures for citizens?
(Apart from FIRPTA, since I will buy something definitely lower than 300K)
