So, it looks like my parents (and I guess my brothers and I as well ) will be moving to the states within the next few years... Or at least want to. Just wondering what our options are? Because of the US/Canadian dollar and the low cost of real-estate my parents are looking to buy a house now. They are looking in northern California as we have some family there (Mountain View, Tracy, and some place that starts with a B... I think Brent wood?). They were also looking into souther California, actually put down an offer on a place that was too good of a deal (I think it was in Wildamore?)... But the real place we will end up living will be more north near San Francisco. Any ways, has any one done a similar? Any advice? I know we will have some issues with getting a Green Card, but since we won't be moving for a few years that gives us some time to sort it out. Worst case Scenario we can come back to Canada for a little bit every 6 months until we get permanent resident status.
