  • Purchase a condo for your Canadian Spring-Summer, live in Sunny _____ for Winter (Florida, Costa Rica, Thailand…wherever floats your boat! )       
  • Experience living in different areas, cities, countries… short/long term…
  • If you sell your house to an investor – offer to rent it back, and stay on as a Tenant – no moving, less responsibility/repairs and lower monthly costs…
