Arizona beckons Canadians with affordable home prices
Listen to "O Canada" while you view this page.
"O Canada", the national anthem of Canada was originally commissioned by Lieutenant Governor of Quebec Théodore Robitaille for the 1880 Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day ceremony. Calixa Lavallée wrote the music as a setting of a French Canadian patriotic poem composed by poet and judge Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier. The lyrics were originally in French and translated into English in 1906.
O Canada.....We stand on guard for thee
Listen to "God Bless America" while you view this page.
"God Bless America" is an American patriotic song written by Irving Berlin in 1918 and revised by him in 1938. "God Bless America" takes the form of a prayer (intro lyrics "as we raise our voices, in a solemn prayer") for God's blessing and peace for the nation ("...stand beside her and guide her through the night...").
God Bless America, Land that I love. Stand beside her, and guide her through the night with a light from above.....God Bless America, my home sweet home.
Canadians buy more Homes in Arizona than from any other state in the US
"Canadians surpass Californians this year (2010) as the top out-of-state buyers of Phoenix area real esate" as reported by Haya El Nasser of USA Today.
Why? The strong Canadian dollar along with an excess of homes and low home prices in the great desert southwest are very attractive. This coupled with the warmth, beauty and peacefulness of the desert offer a beckoning beacon to our neighbors to the north.
Home prices have dropped 50% from 2006 in many Arizona communities. During this time the Canadian Dollar has been increasing in value in relation to the US Dollar making home purchasing even more affordable.
Canadians know a bargain when they see one. The best prices are in the outskirts of the Phoenix metropolitan area where homes in Queen Creek, Maricopa, Surprise, Buckeye and similar cities have dropped the most due, in part, to the long commute. Canadian buyers are here on vacation and can enjoy the city outskirts with newer homes and shopping, golf courses and easy access to ball games and travel destinations throughtout the Grand Canyon State.
