Mortgage for Canadian investors

As a Canadian investor, it is really hard to find banks who want to lend money to you to buy rental property. But after doing some research, I ,ve found the following banks that would lend money to foreign investors .

First, you can use your Canadian home as security, get the line of credit and pay cash to buy rental property in Arizona; and your interest can be writed off as expense of your rental income.

But for those who want their property to be financed in Arizona, there are some banks will offer mortgage for Canadian investors to buy rental property.

I was just informed a few days ago that BBVA (formally Compass) is great for Canadian buyers. They are an international bank so they are not "afraid" to lend to others. I am told that the interest rate is about .25 higher than what current rates are & down payment is between 25%-30%....which is much lower than I have found in the past.

I closed a transaction with a Canadian buyer last month with Washington Federal. The contact person Lynda Neff. The buyer was very happy with their service. In my recent conversations with Compass bank they indicated they are no longer doing non resident loans.
