Chandler, Arizona a favorite with Canadian Buyers

My list of Canadian buyers coming to Chandler to buy a home continues to grow as our inventory of homes in Chandler continues to grow as well. 

Why Chandler you might ask?  Chandler is close enough to the airport but far enough to be out of the congestion of Phoenix.  Chandler is new enough and the Canadians I am working with definitely want newer.  Homes and townhomes preferably built after 2000.  An abundance of golf courses and lakes also make the area inviting.

Close to amenities including brand new shopping centers, movie theaters and an abundance of new restaurants, from fast food to gourmet.  Chandler is fitting the bill for our Canadian buyers.

Canadians are doing their homework before they arrive.  I’m researching and narrowing their choices months before their plane lands.  They arrive, usually with cash in hand and sellers including builders and condo conversion developers are happy to further discount their already heavily discounted properties.

My Edmonton buyers last weekend opted for a condo conversion in Chandler which came with a hefty discount on top of a discount.  Their purchase came after looking at properties in Mesa, Gilbert, Ahwatukke and as far east as Queen Creek.  A home in Queen Creek on the golf course and priced at $200,000 for 2000 square feet was a close second.  I was told a similar home in Edmonton would sell for close to 1 million dollars.  It’s easy to see why our homes are so attractive.   Imagine travelling just a few hours in a plane to a place where you could buy a million dollar home for $200,000…sign me up!

It’s not just our attractively priced homes that are enticing to our Canadian neighbors.  Our cost of living is substantially lower.  2 Buck Chuck is known as 12 Buck Chuck in Canada.  From wine to clothing, the strong Canadian Dollar is providing a great opportunity for an affordable Phoenix vacation.  Add to that the affordable airfare…it’s really a no-brainer. 

Canadian’s are catching our housing market at a low and hoping to realize a nice profit when our market turns around…which it historically has always done.

I thought I might be seeing a decline in the number of Canadian buyers who have been contacting me, but quite the opposite.  Word seems to be spreading.  It’s good news for Sellers in the Valley.  Tomorrow a Canadian buyer may be looking at your home too!
