This groundbreaking book is jammed full of practical information that will ensure you avoid all the potential pitfalls." —Les Hewitt, author of The Power of Focus "When buying real estate anywhere in the world, one must know all the facts and go in with eyes wide open. Before you even consider buying outside of Canada, know the realities by reading this book and learn from others' mistakes." —Don R. Campbell, best-selling author of Real Estate Investing in Canada "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. Philip's the real deal-an international investor who speaks from experience. This book will teach you how to make a great deal, reduce your risk and enjoy the journey along the way." —Greg Habstritt, founder of SimpleWealth 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.

A National Bestseller! Why be house poor when you can rent rich? “Why rent when you can buy?” More than any other, this phrase captures the overwhelmingly unanimous promotion of home ownership to Canadians. Real estate agents, mortgage brokers, family, friends, and even the government promote ownership as a safe, attractive, and sure-fire path to personal wealth. This one-size-fits-all advice ignores the reality of Canada’s housing market. Canadians deserve better advice. Faced with expensive house prices in a near-zero interest rate world, it’s time Canadians heard the virtues of renting and seriously considered renting as an alternative to home ownership. Real estate analyst Alex Avery insists renting offers a simple, more affordable way to live, plus in Canada’s frenzied housing market, going month-to-month is dramatically lower risk. He claims the reputation of home ownership as a wealth building strategy is unfounded and shows renters how to replace bricks-and-mortar with better investment opportunities.
