No, it does not work like that. Just imagine, then anybody could buy a house here
from anywhere in the world and become a US citizen? You need at least 500000 dollars
investment and employ at least 10 americans to be eligible on an investor's visa.

Absolutely not!! If that were the case, everyone from Mexico would be buying
property.
