Take advantage of the strong U.S. dollar

Dreaming about remodeling your kitchen, considering an addition on your home, have your eye on a new investment or just want to take advantage of the strong U.S. dollar? Now is the time to and take advantage of the increased value in your U.S. home by refinancing¹!

Your U.S. home may be worth more than you think

Many Canadians bought their U.S. home between 2009 and 2013 when the Canadian Dollar was at or around parity with the U.S. Dollar. Over the years, these same homes have appreciated by as much as 12 – 15% a year in popular snowbird markets. Canadians who are U.S. homeowners are in a unique and favorable position to take advantage of appreciation on their home and the strong U.S. dollar.
