A recent estimate indicates the total value of South Korean real estate is at least 10 times as expensive as that of Canada. Since Canada is 200 times as large as South Korea, I guess it'll be pretty easy for nearly anyone in South Korea to buy land enough for a typical South Korean village in Canada. Maybe that is why some US counties and states are experiencing increase in house and land prices but mostly triggered by some Asians or Asian-Americans. Someone bought some piece of desert in a southern US territory and tore it to thousands of small pieces and sold each to different individuals, one of the common tactics in South Korea. They thrive on a very human feeling: insecurity.
