There are programs here in the US for Canadian Investors. A lender I frequently work with has a 20% down program for Canadians to buy investment properties. Also, I grew up in Vancouver and have a contact there in the lending industry that also works with investors if they choose to refinance up there and then use Cash to purchase down here.
Feel free to reach out by email or phone and I would be glad to pass along the names of these lenders.
