During World War II, Greenland was separated in fact, both socially and economically, from Denmark, closer to the United States and Canada. After the war, control of the island returned to Denmark, getting their colonial status, and although Greenland remains part of the Kingdom of Denmark, is autonomous since 1979. The island is the only province that has been separated from the European Union if well has the status of associated state.

Investing in real estate is always a good decision for long-term profits. Usually buying real estate means having capital gain and also it doesn’t carry big risks. In the USA, after the economic crisis of 2008, there are several options to purchase real estate bargain prices with high growth opportunity. It's important to note than American laws allow foreigners to obtain loans from banks to finance their investments. Between March 2010 and March 2011, foreigners in the USA purchased 82 billion dollars in real estate, according to the National Realtors Association. 2014 could be the year to purchase real estate in USA. Forbes made a list of the best places to invest in the next year: 1. Forth Worth – Arlington, Texas. Upstate is a good option to buy home. Fort Worth has a population of 2.2 million.

The data coming from the National Association of Realtors south of the border are expected to be released in early July. They will detail purchases between March last year and March, 2014.
The growth in U.S. home prices is moderating but still strong. For instance, housing prices in 20 major cities rose 10.8 percent in April from a year earlier, according to figures released in June from the S&P Dow Jones Indices.
Nevertheless, Mr. Forget points out that Canadian retirees can still buy cheaper homes in many southern locations than they can at home despite the increase in U.S. home prices undergone after the subprime mortgage crisis.
“I just received the statistics for the month of May for southeast Florida, places like Palm Beach and Broward County,” he says. “And the median price for a single home is $282,000. The median price for condos and townhouses is $135,000.” These are low prices compared to the $416,584 Cdn average selling price of an existing home in Canada during May.
According to the realtors’ 2013 survey, Canadians accounted for 23 percent of U.S. sales to foreigners, up from just 10 percent in 2007. That growth came as Mexico’s share fell from 13 percent to 8 percent, and the United Kingdom’s share dropped from 12 percent to 5 percent. China, meanwhile, rose from 5 percent of sales to 12 percent.
Foreigners bought about $68.2-billion US worth of existing homes in the U.S. in the 12 months leading up to March, 2013, down from $82.5-billion a year earlier, and accounting for about 6.3 percent of the total sales. Of the property sales to foreigners, about half were to people with permanent residence outside the U.S. while the other half were to recent immigrants or temporary visa holders.
