Canadians are buying up American housing in record numbers, spending $19 billion US between spring 2016 and spring 2017 — an all-time high, according to a report from the U.S.-based National Association of Realtors (NAR). 

CBC News interviewed our very own Brian Ellis for his take on Canadians continuing to buy at a record pace in Florida. Please click here to watch the interview.

Affordability is a major issue for many local home buyers in the GTA. Fortunately, this is not the case when looking to snap up a deal in Florida. With average prices around $200k, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to most larger markets in Ontario. We strongly believe that this is still a great time to buy in Florida.

A recent buyer said the following, "It's all a matter of what your priorities in life are and our priority right now is to make sure we never see snow or ice again as long as we live.” If you can afford to do this, we think these are words to live by. With mortgages available and our loonie on the climb, we can’t think of any reasons not to buy and enjoy what you have worked so hard for your whole life….time off in the sun, relaxing on a sandy beach, playing a round of golf in January, having dinner and a drink with a little umbrella in it on a patio over looking the ocean.

Florida Home Finders of Canada's Free Florida home buying seminars will resume in October. If you haven't attended one, or even if you have, you owe it to yourself to come out and learn about the many issues that effect Canadians when buying or residing part time in the U.S. The seminar is presented in a relaxed and non selling information session. Get answers to all of your questions and don’t forget to leave your cheque book at home!
