Format: Hardcover
This book could (and should) be no more than 30 pages long. Most, if not all, of the useful information was pulled off websites or other books. The rest is detailed info about conversations the character Ted had on his trips to the states - and convincing his wife to come. Ted talks about the line up at the airport, the drive in a taxi (and everything it passed), and going to watch a basketball game in Phoenix. He also goes on and on about his daughter and what she want's to do while in the states, which would be great if this wasn't a book about buying property. If you know NOTHING about real-estate (like the character Ted) and prefer long drawn-out stories -> this is YOUR book.

I would have preferred more facts, and less storytelling. I was really disappointed in this book, and would not recommend it to anyone looking into buying real estate in the States. There has to better books with more concise information than this!

Little, if any, specific information about what to what out for, etc. To me, the things investors want to know are how should I own the property, how does the way I own affect my taxes and tax filing requirements, what do I need to know about US estate tax, and US withholding taxes.

Format: Hardcover
It would have to take an Irish guy to fill what seems like a very obvious gap in the market - advice to Canadians on buying residential real estate in the U.S. The book is very easy to read as it's done in a story format, with very useful and relevant information interspersed throughout. The author has wisely tapped into the knowledge of experienced investors to pass on their wisdom. With the US dollar weakening in relation to the Loonie, many Canadians are looking at the U.S real estate market as a great investment opportunity - but there are many mistakes that can be made, as this books points out. More importantly, it shows insightful ways to avoid making these mistakes. Great resource for beginner and experienced investors.

As noted by another reviewer, no real new content here. Spending 20 minutes with Google will get you more. The simplistic story line doesn't help in learning about the subject. Was expecting to get some useful, new info, not the same old basic info that is repeated many times on the Net.

Format: Hardcover
If someone is looking to buy in the US I don't think this book will provide much if any useful info. Its a story of a couple and their quest to buy a property. If you are an investor and want answers on tax, estate, and liability issues it will be a frustrating read.
