Non-root users can log in to SSH but not read Home Directory?

I have Redhat 7.1 and I'm connecting to my SSH server via the internet. I can do everything fine as root, but even if I create a new user (using SSH) that user cannot read anything, including folders and files that they have rwx to. I can log in, and even su to root, but when logged in as any non-root user, I get permission denied errors when trying to ls -l the home directory or pretty much run anything. Am I losing it, or is this an SSH issue? I haven't been to the actual box to log in directly yet, just SSH into it.

I never heard of such a feature in OpenSSH... are you sure you are running that user and that you are in the right directory? What happens when you cd /tmp , can you ls -l? What does pwd returns? what does id returns? Give me more info!
