What is your experience? It seems that options are limited. Is SoFi a possible choice?

    Are you serious? Get H1-B first!

    Thank you all for the heads-up! My concern is that the housing cost rises so quickly that waiting for H1b might results in a tens of thousand increase in the price. For the risk, I am okayish since I can apply EB1B if I missed the lottery this year.

      You make no sense, apply for EB1 get your EAD and you get whatever the fuck loan you want. Why even talk of F1 and H1B if you think you can get EB1

      Well, it takes time. The earliest would be around end of this year, I guess. It is definitely after h1b application or the opt stem extension. I hope I can make the purchase in next few months.

    Why would you do that? Most give only to H1B, L1 - no OPT

    Don't get a mortgage if you only have an opt. Are you crazy OP?
