Amy Jones ~ Celebrity Realtor…well almost.

Imagine my surprise when I found a quote by your’s truly in an article today on www.azcentral.com.  I had been called by a couple reporters in the last few months about the Canadian buyers that I work with.  Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Propelled by falling home prices and a glut of unsold homes, Canadians surging into the Southeast Valley residential real estate market also are benefiting from the buying power of the Canadian dollar, which is at parity with the American dollar for the first time in almost 31 years, say Realtors.

“Almost every day, I’m contacted by Canadians who are looking for second homes in the Phoenix metro area,” said Amy Jones, of RE/MAX Elite in Chandler. “The Canadian housing market has experienced double-digit appreciation recently giving them access to equity lines of credit. Combined with our high inventory of great homes at affordable prices and great airfare rates from Canada to Phoenix, the word is spreading throughout Canada that Arizona is the place to buy.”

Yet while our neighbors from the north are making business a little brighter for many Realtors, they’re not going save the depressed market here, Jones and other real estate professionals caution.

“They’re very discerning buyers and busy shoppers,” she said. “They’re getting a lot of information up there that we’re headed for a recession.”
