I am holding a temporary resident visa which is a pathway to permanent residency. In short, I'm not yet a permanent resident. But I don't like to rent anymore and I really want to get a loan to buy a house.

Am I qualified to apply for a loan? Am I allowed to buy a house? Or only those who are permanent residents or citizens are allowed to own a house?
