Key Takeaways:

“Well, first of all, that you could actually buy tax liens in parts of Canada. But the challenge is this, to my knowledge, unless they changed it in the last year since I’ve been teaching there, I’m going to tell you the highest rate I’ve ever seen in all of Canada is 3%. So, why would you want to get involved in 3% when in Florida you can make 185,  I could make 24% in Chicago, Illinois tax certificates pay 3% a month. That’s 36% a year. So my Canadian clients and I have hundreds of them all buy in the States.” – Ted Thomas

“I have clients all over the English speaking world buying here and there in Florida and all over the States. I teach my Canadian clients, just let us give you some exposure to it and we’ll put you online to do this, and you’re going to say, Oh, but I don’t want to use the computer. We can show them how to use the computer and buy it. I have clients all over British Columbia, Alberta, and all over Ontario already doing this now and I’m talking about people that are making six figure incomes doing this business in the States.” – Ted Thomas
