H1B visa and RE investments

2 Replies

Hi members, as a H1B visa holder I've read on numerous websites that investment in rental properties and RE in general is legal however what's unclear to me is to what extent the visa holder can be involved as an owner. For example can the visa holder order rehab material, oversee rehab work, etc. or is a PM mandatory? Also can the visa holder use personal bank account for collecting rents, etc.? Please advise.TIA

 Yes, there are no restrictions on the investments.
