Overview

Real estate remains one of the most stable investments available in Canada, offering a higher return than GICs and more security than stocks. Real Estate Investing For Canadians For Dummies, 2nd Edition offers a clear, comprehensive, and Canadian look at investing in real estate, from investigating properties (and other investment options, such as REITs), to securing financing, to managing properties, to knowing when to sell. Real-life anecdotes, useful web resources, and a balanced perspective will make this the ideal book for people looking to explore this lucrative field.

Content in this revised edition covers the new opportunities available (such as foreclosures), the significant changes to financing, and changes to property management laws that every investor must know. Gray and Mitham also explore how investors can manage risk and survive (and thrive) in a volatile market and offer new advice on how to manage maintenance costs.
