As for financing, Jenn Cook's advice earlier is spot on; financing is difficult for Foreign nationals. There are Mortgage Brokers here that can help you but if you can line up the financing in Canada, you would be on more secure footing when you start your search in our market. Good luck
While Carrington Mortgage itself does not offer foreign national loans, I do know of some reputable banks/lenders that do. Please feel free to contact me for their contact information.

I lived in Calgary Alberta when I was a child and loved it with the exception of the cold winters. Now, I'm happy to be in sunny Florida!!
As a Canadian buyer, it's best to either secure financing in Canada and bring the cash to the states or expect to need at least 50% cash for a down payment. I know of a few foreign national lenders that I can recommend. As far as buying, there are plenty of things to watch out for. I would like to set up a time we can speak on the phone and then I can give you all the details and possibly send you condos to consider. Feel free to contact me anytime.
I look forward to assisting you with your real estate needs.
