Are you a Canadian investor with an eye on the red-hot U.S. real estate markets?
If you are, break out because complicated legal and tax issues can give you a headache before you’ve even started
Directly investing in U.S. real estate from Canada entails more work than you might think
You have to recognize that there is no such thing as a simple direct investment in real estate. It’s more likely that you’ll have a part-time job, running a house that you own, renting it out and being responsible for calling the plumber and chasing down tenants that don’t pay and so on. There’s a lot more to that than many people realize.
