Why is this a good time to invest in US real estate?
1) Timing of the Market Cycle
Real estate markets are cyclical. Real estate values typically go through crests and troughs, as a region's economy improves or falters. The US has just come out of the worst recession in decades, creating an opportunity to acquire property at low prices, and with good rental yields.
The best time to invest is always when a market is in the early stages of recovery or sustained economic growth.
2) US Dollar's Strength
In the last 15 years, the US Dollar has traded at 21% over the Canadian Loonie on average. The general "expert" opinion is that the Dollar will continue to grow in strength against the Loonie in the short to medium term.
For those who have, or plan to have investments in US currency, the growing strength of the Dollar might provide additional returns when converted back to the Loonie.
