i am looking to buy a property under $100,000...using Canadian home equity. My main concern is to rent it long term and possibly break even with expenses. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you!

I would say one of the most important concerns for you as a foreign national is not where in Florida to buy, or which Realtor to work with.

Your foremost concern If you're considering a purchase of an investment property in Florida should be talking with an attorney who specializes in working with Canadian Buyers to structure their Florida real estate investmentsso as to maximize their profits and minimize their tax liability.

It just seems to me that if you're planning to buy an investment property here, you might as well do everything you can upfront to make it a worthwhile investment. Does that make sense to you?

Anyhow, with that in mind, you might want to read some articles such as the one referenced below, entitled "Are Acquisitions Properly Structured for U.S. Tax Purposes?":…

This is the right time to make such a purchase. Rental demand is strong.
The under 100K options will confine your real estate choices to properties that will have tight margins and more likely to have an issue or two.

You will find it essential to commit to a real estate professional so you can benefit from their 'first Look' program. Be wary of engaging in lending situations that will make you noncompetitive. At this price point, the competition will be fierce, being handicapped by your lender is the last thing you need.

Best of success to you,
