Buy Florida Homes…
A study by the Bank of Montreal says that the housing market in the US is heathy and prices are expected to rise. It added that Florida destinations for Canadians remain affordable with a median priced home approximately half the cost of a home in Canada.
Over a half million Canadians own homes in Florida. Southwest Florida is a popular wintering spot for our northern neighbors and many are finding a Florida home a very good investment. Prices are down about half of what they were at their peak in 2006 but are set to rise again, albeit not too fast. Canadian currency exchange rates are strong at this time but as the US dollar rebounds the investment appreciates.
Sal Guatieri, senior economist, BMO Capital Markets said, “We expect prices to rise over time alongside growing family incomes.” Guatieri also says BMO expects “capital gains appreciation for Canadians who purchase U.S. property.”
