Hey BP,

As a Canadian if I were to buy a property in the USA am I legally allowed to repair/work on it myself?

I am looking to:

1. Buy distressed property with cash.

2. Repair said property doing most of the work myself and manages contractors for work I can't or do not want to do.

3. Hire a property manager. 

4. Return to Canada.

4. Repeat.

Is that allowed or would I be considered to be working illegally? I am not getting paid so I think I may be ok.

Does anyone have experience with this? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time!
