The U.S.-based National Association of Realtors reported Canadians had snatched up $19 billion US ($24.7 billion CAD) worth of U.S. homes in 2017, a trend that continued to accelerate into 2018. Yet, the process can be daunting, which is why we provide specialized mortgage lending services for Canadians buying in the United States through our long-standing relationship with US Mortgage lender partners. The majority of our clients focus on the Florida and Arizona vacation markets but we help Canadians buy across all 50 States.
Helping Finance Cross Border
Have you ever dreamed of purchasing property in the US?
You're not alone.
PERSONAL PROPERTY PURCHASES
Half a million Canadians own property in the sunshine state alone, enjoying time with friends and family away from the snow and cold.
Studies show, +65% of Canadian Snowbirds renews their mortgage without exploring other options.
The most common mistakes made by clients are the use of registered investment funds for the purchase of their U.S. property, which sadly, incurs more taxation than necessary. We are here to provide the awareness and education required to embark on cross border purchasing. As they say, “Knowledge is Power” and we serve our clients by providing them with the power to save on their purchase.
Do not use your registered investments prior to calling us. We have a better solution.
INVESTMENT PROPERTY PURCHASES
The same mistakes are made when financing investment properties. We have helped countless clients think and finance differently.
What about taking your equity out in Canada and buying investment properties in the USA with higher cap rates earning US dollars? This isn’t a pipe dream; we can make it a reality!
