Author John McCord highlights complex issues such as estate, insurance, financing, residency, immigration and taxation that are important considerations in the purchase of property in the U.S. In addition to potential tax advantages, a unique real estate investment opportunity through the EB-5 visa program also offers the possibility of a streamlined Green Card approval process. To understand the merits and the pitfalls, McCord recommends consulting with a qualified team of professionals who specialize in Canadian and United States cross-border transitioning and asset management in order to develop the best individualized strategy.
