If I buy property in Germany, am I able to stay over 90 days or gain any new benefits when traveling between U.S and Germany? ?

    To be certain you should get info from official German government websites etc.  Don't spend any money on property in Germany without guaranteed info.  That applies to anywhere in the world.

    Nope. You are still a foreign visitor.

    Nope; owning property in Germany gives you no rights whatsoever to enter the country, or any benefits whatsoever.

    Not as far as I can find out. If you want to stay longer than 90 days, you have to apply for a residency permit and it MIGHT be a bit easier to get one if you own property. And if you reside in your property for more than the usual tourist's 90 days, you may end up being considered a tax resident of Germany and have to file taxes in Germany as well as the US.
