Scottsdale, Arizona homes are not only appealing to American real estate investors but also to our Canadian neighbors to the north.  In fact, Canadians are continuing to buy Scottsdale golf properties as second homes and investments like hotcakes.  This trend really started in 2008 and has persisted even to this day.  Let’s face it: Canadians love the consistently warmer weather in Scottsdale!  Scottsdale weather is pleasant all year round and is a refuge for residents who can’t stand the cold.


Scottsdale Real Estate of High Interest to Canadian Home Buyers


Scottsdale also offers many golfing amenities, first class shopping, resorts, spas and an excellent nightlife.  It’s easy to see why Canadian real estate investors would find all four sections of Scottsdale a great place to live.  However, there is also an investment strategy here.  The U.S. dollar has been declining as of late, while the Canadian dollar has remained in tact—or at least remained more consistent in value.  This allows Canadian investors to spend less money on high quality real estate and reap big rewards.  In addition, United States properties have lower property taxes than Canadian real estate and practically no restrictions or extra charges.  These are some of the motivators that Canadian investors are thinking over when considering the idea of buying here.


One of the best reasons to buy Scottsdale is because of the fantastic golf properties.  Whether you’re looking in North Scottsdale, South Scottsdale, Shea Corridor, or Old Town Scottsdale, there is always a golf course within short range.  In fact, there are over 200 golf courses in the entire city.  North Scottsdale certainly has some of the most prestigious golf courses in the area and in the state, with residential neighborhoods like DC Ranch, Desert Mountain, Grayhawk, Mirabel, and Troon North.


Great Ideas for Canadian Real Estate Investors


Scottsdale Arizona homes for sale can range anywhere from 200,000 to over $5 million dollars, depending on where you are looking.  North Scottsdale usually has the most expensive properties, while South Scottsdale has more working class opportunities.  When you look up Scottsdale AZ real estate online you can search according to location, according to types of homes (condos, apartments, villas), or according to price range.  You can also search for communities in Scottsdale, such as retirement communities or golf communities.


Canadian real estate investors should understand that there are some legalities involved in buying U.S. real estate from another country.  For instance, you need a tax ID or social security number in order to escape a certain “surrender penalty” that can be applied by the U.S. government in some situations. Be sure to speak to your tax advisor.  Ideally, it’s best if you let a Scottsdale based real estate company guide you in your investment opportunity.  Scottsdale Realtor, like Jen Wehner, can help you secure high quality properties with potential, or direct you to local communities that offer excellent lifestyle.


Whether you are looking for easy urban living, country lifestyle, a turn-key condo, a resort style country club, or a completely maintenance-free second home, Scottsdale Realtor-Jen Wehner can help you get started with relocation and investment.  Hey, someone has to benefit from the U.S. dollar decline or else the economic crisis of 2008 benefits nobody.  That beneficiary might as well be our Canadian brothers and sisters!
