    There is no set rule, but if an immigration guy at the airport gets the impression you have been coming too often (in his opinion), he won't let you in. It is starting to happen more often. Best to look "normal" and prosperous.

    Consider applying for a longer visa (Brits don't need one, but I believe that is only for a 90 day visit).

    Difficult to immigrate to USA unless you have a badly needed skill, or have a job offer from a USA employer who applies for and proves he can't get hires from in the USA.

    If you bought some property in the states, you could probably get multiple visas to visit it.

    Marry an American?

    Become a full time student and get a student visa?

    Get a job or some sort of internship with the United Nations?

    Get a job from an EU company that has offices here?

    A lot of people overstay their visas. Usually nothing happens to them, but it is almost impossible for them to get good employment, since they can'[t get a social security number. And, if you ever leave, the odds are you will not ever be let in again legally (they keep good computer records these days.)

    Even 20 years ago, that was happening to people I worked with. They would get refused entry for no discernible reason. It became almost a standard backup plan to divert to The Bahamas for a few days until they worked it out, or just tried again at another airport.

    It happened to too many Japanese people flying to Portland, in the 90's. Apparently due to one crotchety immigration officer. Eventually the airline just cancelled the service entirely and sent everyone through Seattle.

    No. There are no rules on buying USA real estate - all that counts is $$$. (It's possible that there is some federal law prohibiting Russians, Iranians, or North Koreans from buying here, due to sanctions, but if there is, that would not apply to you.) However, most people would want to see the property first.
