Arizona Properties For Calgary Investors (Financing Available)

Mortgage and Lending with San Diego VA Home Loans/858-777-9751

Western Canadians are buying real estate in Arizona.  There are four reasons for this modern day land grab: 

  1. Crude oil and minerals have led the commodities price surge, world wide.  Western Canada is rich with both minerals and crude oil.   While the Western United States is experiencing a housing-led recession,  the opposite is happening to our Northern neighbors. 
  2. The Canadian dollar (sometimes called the “loonie”) has reached parity with the American dollar.  What used to cost a Canadian $1.15 , now costs about a buck. 
  3. Housing prices in both Arizona and Southern California are over 20% off of their high prices. 
  4. Mortgage rates, for Canadian investors, have dropped from 8.5% to 7.2%.

Let me lay it out for you in a story.  Bob Miller, from Calgary, earned some $150,000 Canadian in 2006.  Bob works as a petroleum engineer.  His 2007 income rose some 25% to $190,000 because of the high demand for petroleum engineers in Western Canada. 

Bob’s purchasing power, in 2006, was about $127,000 American.  He could afford to buy a golf course property, in Avondale, AZ, for about $350,000.  To do that, he’d need about $135,000 Canadian for a down payment and have a mortgage payment of about $2,000 Canadian, or 16% of his monthly income.
