Certainly could be, I know of a Family that bought a Hotel and got an E2. YMMV

Can somebody please tell me if realty ownership in the US may be a foundation for applying for E-2 visa? I just can’t understand language on the government websites. 

Its a gray area but if the real estate purchase is clearly a business then it should work. If you buy a house to live in then that would not qualify

As far as I know E-2 visa is for entrepreneurs and business investment not a property market. You probably will get rejected even though $100 000 is a big amount of money. We used migration agency for getting citizenship of Malta, they did all paper work because I hate this technical language too. Check migronis-citizenship.com maybe you l’ll find what you are looking for.

Interesting. We were thinking about timesharing, whole hotel must be very expansive.  

Timeshare is a holiday for you, a whole hotel is a business. Yes?

EB5 has a minimum $500k investment, as a comparison.

Assuming you are talking about an E2 Treaty Investor visa, it can be difficult to qualify for one based on real estate investment.  Realty ownership alone will not get you the visa, since the E2 requires more than a passive investment, i.e.,  you have to do more with the property than own it.  For example, someone mentioned owning a hotel -- if you are actively managing the hotel, and it is making money, it would likely qualify you for an E2 vIsa.  On the other hand, buying a house and renting it out (even if you occasionally have to hire repairmen or do repairs yourself) doesn't require day-to-day management and won't qualify for an E2 visa.
