    Beautiful house. What a wonderful place to find sanctuary while the political craziness of the US sorts itself out.

    How hard is it for an American to buy property in Canada?

    • There are no restrictions on foreigners buying property in Canada but you will have to abide by the immigration laws. For instance, your children would not be allowed to attend school and you will not have access to government funded healthcare unless you have a student visa, or permanent resident status or other legal status that allows it. US citizens in general are allowed to visit Canada for no more than six months in a calendar year.

      Piggy backing on the last reply, I could be remembering this in a hodge-podge kind of way, but I want to say what job you have can make living in Canada a whole lot easier. If you are considered highly skilled, you can get permanent resident status on a faster track. Once you retain that status for five yours, you can apply for citizenship.

      One of the requirements for being a permanent resident is to have a permanent residence, which is where owning this lovely lady would come in. Permanent residents can have healthcare, enroll their children in school, etc. They just can’t run for office or have high ranking government job. You would, for the most part, be living a normal life in your new Canadian home.

      Not that I’ve looked into moving to Canada or anything…… *cough*

      Please check me for accuracy on some of those things.

        Yeah, I went to those web pages about two years ago, when they were promoting Nova Scotia during the elections. That is when I fell in love with the province. I lived in Maine for a few years, and Nova Scotia is so much like the coast of Maine. It is beautiful! I am nearing retirement, so I wouldn’t have to worry about children in school or getting a job. Maybe a second home in Canada. If I could stay six months there, I could go south for the winter the rest of the year.

      Roger, There’s all kinds of tax consequences for owning a home in a foreign country. Be sure to speak with your accountant. Some provinces charge a special tax to foreign investors (British Columbia comes to mind) to limit investors buying properties – renting them out – not maintaining them to standard – unruly short-term renters (AirBnB) – driving up prices to stop Canadians from home ownership etc.

    I wonder what is up with the headstones just outside of the back door? ?

    Nice house. I usually don’t pay a lot of attention to colors, but it’s nice to see a house where everything isn’t just white&gray or overpowering dark colors. This one was well thought out I think. A lot of colors, but still subtle. I never would have thought a blue bathroom counter would look good.
    I’m not a fan of carpet, but I don’t even mind it in this house.

    What a lovely home. Wish houses in B.C. (British Columbia) were as reasonable as they seem to be in Nova Scotia!
