In South Carolina we get lots of Canadian tourists every year (mostly from Quebec and Ontario).

I moved to Charleston, SC from Vancouver, BC almost 4 years ago and became a residential Realtor here. At the time, the Loonie was worth $0.75 USD. Now it is worth more than the US dollar!

I am thinking that with the appreciation of the Loonie, Canadians may be more inclined at purchasing second homes here in the warmer, coastal areas - so I should start to target potential Canadian buyers.

Would anyone care to comment if this is logical to expect or not?

It should be logical to expect but Canadians take less risks than Americans... Business wise, Canadians haven't been jumping on the opportunity to take over american companies, etc.... and that at a time they should.

Maybe consider moving to a warmer place. But if you get a second home you need to consider cost to get there. If we get a cottage up north we can drive there. I wouldn't drive frequently to South Carolina. I'd lose holiday time intransit.
