American Property Purchase

Thursday, December 16, 2010

The Australian dollar has gone over $1 US again today.

I am not providing financial advice or any form of recommendation but personally I believe that the $ is unlikely to go much higher and Christmas can have a very strange effect on currencies.  Anyone serious about purchasing property in the US, or even just wanting to possibly make a few bucks on currency exchange could place $A into $US. 

How…..Today I found out how easy it is.

I went to HSBC and opened an Australian Account and a US $ Account.  It took half an hour.  Now I can transfer all my $A that I have spare into the HSBC $A account and then transfer them over the internet into the $US account.  Best of all it is quick, simple and free.

HSBC has just opened an office in Ainsle Avenue, Canberra City (near the fountain) and the staff are very helpful.
