I have many clients who were Canadian and did bought home here in Phoenix, partly because of dollar parity with CN and also rate and prices are so low that you could get positive cash flow from investment (if it is a rental).

I too can recommend BBVA Compass Bank. Contact Vanessa Mendez, 480-893-5820 or . Then when you are pre-approved, give me a call to find the home you want. I'm from Canada and love working with my fellow Canadians.

Yes! There are actually more options than you would think. Washington Federal will finance one property (as investment property or second home) and RBC will also do a second home. We also have a new lender that will do multiple properties but requires a larger down payment (40%, so not too much more). Please feel free to call or send me an email for contacts.

M&I Bank will be doing loans for Canadians, Compass will do a vacation or 2nd home only, Harris Bank will do one investment and one vacation home. There are stipulations, such as with Harris Bank, they require you to have a certain amount of money in the Bank of Montreal and 50% down, Compass will do a 25-30% down payment...(of course the banks can change what they are offering, and the last time I spoke with M&I they were waiting on the details of what they will be able to offer).

If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Best Regards,
