Well, if you can answer this question: "what type of house,condo,land would you buy in Europe and where,if you had 200-300000 cash?and if your house is paid totally,how much would you need in addition to live frugal:gas,food,electricity and so on:monthly?" Then you can figure we'd be able to answer your question.

Permanent Residents of the USA ("Green Card Holders") can buy real property in Hawaii, but so can foreigners who have no permanent residency status in the USA.
