"For any Canadian, buying real estate in the US can be the best decision you ever make, or the worst mistake you'll never forget.

From the Introduction:

Whether it's a lifestyle purchase or an investment, there are many factors about buying US property that many Canadian buyers understandably find confusing, or they overlook. Add to that the complexities of the new foreclosure-driven buyers' market, and buying a US property could be a recipe for disaster if you don't do your homework.

That's where South of 49 comes in. This book is about more than just tax advice and buying tips. We take you through all of the real-life considerations when buying down south, from travel time and immigration rules to making sure the home or condo you buy actually fits your investment goals. We will also help you answer one very important question when considering such a purchase: Why? Why should you buy a place and not just rent? Why should you buy in Florida instead of California, for example? The answers? It all depends. It depends on you, your individual circumstances and your goals. This book will help you think through these decisions before you make them.
