HiFX to Host International Property Seminars for Canadians in Alberta

Strong currency, attractive property prices, and lifestyle gains lure Canadians South.

Edmonton, Canada, August 29, 2008 --(PR.com)-- HiFX, one of the largest providers of foreign exchange services to international property buyers will be hosting a series of property seminars to help educate Canadians about the real estate opportunities in the U.S. and Central America.

“The strength of the Loonie, low interest rates, and depressed real estate prices in the U.S. have combined to produce the “Perfect Storm” for Canadian snowbirds and investors looking at recreation or investment property in the U.S. and Central America. Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Mexico, and Costa Rica have been popular destinations for Canadians for years,” said Wayne Lee, a senior marketing manager with HiFX, Inc in San Francisco.

“We’re sponsoring these educational seminars around Canada because it’s imperative that potential buyers consider a variety of issues when purchasing property abroad.” Lee continued, “Even though US property is attractively priced right now, financial risk management should always be part of the planning process. It is also important to handle the real estate, mortgage, legal and tax aspects of your purchase very carefully. HiFX partners with experts in all of these areas to provide its clients with a full range of consultative services.”

Registered attendees at the HiFX seminar will learn about key considerations including: finding an experienced real estate agent you can trust, getting financing options for your mortgage, protecting against currency exchange risk and planning for tax and estate issues.

The seminar “Buying property in the U.S. and Central America” will take place September 9th at 6 p.m. at the Mayfield Inn and Suites, 16615 109 Avenue NW Edmonton, AB T5P 4K8.

The seminar is free however seating is limited. Register online at www.hifx.com/edmontonshow or call 1 877 999 4439.
