Acceptance of foreigner without a green card

    by Neil Robinson | Mortgage | Aug 07, 2014

    I had previously spoken to other larger national banks and lenders, but had found it very difficult to obtain credit because of my status as a foreigner. Wells Fargo (my primary bank) would not even approve me for a credit card, despite having evidence of my regular income and my good credit score. TechCU were very accommodating, and agreed to finance my home purchase by looking at more evidence of my financial background and employment history, rather than simply my residence status - a welcome change in the difficult property market of Silicon Valley.
