Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.

With the economy what it is, foreclosures in the United States and our dollar at times at par or over the American dollar, perhaps it’s a good time to buy property in America. Canadians are often known to leave the country for warmer climes in the winter, and this winter will be no exception. My guest now David A. Altro is an expert at cross-border real estate. He is the author of a new book, Owning US Property the Canadian Way, 2nd Edition. The subtitle of the book is ‘Protect Your Family with The Cross Border Trust and Other Strategies.’ Mr. Altro explains jargon like the short sale, how foreclosure sales work, as well he states the tax implications of buying property in the US, and under whose name the property should be placed. David Altro is the managing partner at Altro and Associates, a multi-jurisdictional law firm with offices in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Fort Lauderdale, Sarasota, Naples, and Phoenix. He’s been practicing law in both countries for well over 30 years now. You can get this book from www.altrolaw.com. He joins me from Montreal this day. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, David Altro; Good morning, Mr. Altro.
