I can afford to buy a home . I am not sure if I am required to work if I have the means to live my life how I see fit. Is this a problem? Would not working present a problem if I am able to support myself at no cost to the state?
You should check with the French consulate office on this question. Some countries require financial disclosure with such a request - their biggest worry is that a foreigner may take a job that a national could be paid to do. If you can prove your wealth, they'd probably be happy to invite you in.
