Like its neighbor to the south, the Canadian residential real estate market significantly varies depending on which community is being considered. Not surprisingly, the costs associated with single family homes continues to rise in the larger and more major Canadian cities. At the present time, the more rural and outlying residential housing market in the country is a bit flat. In other words, if you are looking for bargains on residential property, a foreign national might want to consider one of the more rural or northward lying communities when looking to purchase such property.
Keeping in mind that a goodly share of the foreign nationals who are shopping for and purchasing residential property in Canada are doing so to set up a holiday retreat. Therefore, a more rural setting oftentimes is a welcome choice for such a property investor.
