Q: I'm from Philippines, have been living in Japan for almost 3.5 years, and would like to have a home loan. however, the property I have is back in the Philippines. Would it still be possible to have a home loan? I am a non-Japanese residence.
Q: We have been paying 470,000 a month for the last five years on a home loan. We are wantig to get a loan with Citibank to pay off the remaining balance of 21,900,000 yen that we owe another bank. Is this possible? My husband is American and we have lived on Okinawa together for 20 years. I do not work but he has worked for the same company on a US military base here for 20 years and makes 9,500,000 a year. I am a Japanese citizen. I speak Japanese and English so please feel free to write me back in either language.
