Retired Canadians Head to Alabama

An increasing number of retired Canadians are now finding that the Gulf Coast of Mexico can be spelled with a capital “A” – as in Alabama.   Canada, like the United States, has it’s share of “baby boomers” that welcome the change in temperature and the 32 miles of white sand beaches that accommodate over 6 million annual visitors.   With the current exchange rate, the buying power of the Canadian dollar combined with very low real estate taxes, coastal properties are very attractive to these northern neighbors.  

And once they arrive, they find a Gulf coast that is both progressive and environmentally friendly – with thousands of acres preserved for bird and animal wildlife as well as miles of beaches.

  1. I must say that i am happy to see the way in which the Alabama real estate market in going. New auto plants in Toney, Birmingham, Montgomery and the over 5000 people expected to come to North Alabama because of BRAC all contribute to the Alabama economy. The Alabama real estate market is doing amazingly well compared to the rest of the market
