Frequently Asked Questions

Buying and selling real estate in a foreign country can be a complicated process and raises many questions. Here are a few of the most frequent questions Canadians ask us when they reach out to us for help.

Yes. There are no restrictions on foreign property buyers in the United States. You do not require any immigration status. Foreign buyers can purchase solely for investment purposes or for personal use. As a Canadian citizen with no U.S. status, you can use your property personally up to 6 months each year following the visitor Visa maximum requirements.

No. There is no foreign tax for Canadians buying U.S. real estate. You will only be subject to property taxes, income taxes if you rent the property, and potentially capital gains taxes when you sell the property.

The Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act or FIRPTA, applies to the disposition of U.S. real property by foreign owners. Canadians who sell a U.S. property may be subject to a 10-15% withholding of the sales price by the IRS. FIRPTA’S objective is to ensure non-resident aliens file U.S. income tax returns and pay taxes on profits generated in the U.S. FIRPTA was instituted to prevent foreign investors from selling U.S. real estate and neglecting to pay any outstanding U.S. tax obligations. FIRPTA prevents this by requiring Federal withholding of 10-15% of the full sale price, regardless of the seller’s profit from the transaction. The deposit is held by the IRS until the seller files income tax returns at the end of the year, at which time any taxes owed are deducted and the balance is refunded to the seller. If no tax is due, the entire amount held is refunded. The seller may also obtain an exemption certificate or waiver from the IRS, in which case the funds can be immediately released.

Yes. US mortgages are available to Canadian citizens who are not residents of the United States. You are required to have a minimum 20% down payment and you can use your Canadian income and credit rating to qualify. Not all banks will lend to foreign buyers but we do work closely with many who do offer great products and rates to Canadians.
No. This is a major misconception. Foreign property owners pay the same property tax as a U.S. resident.
