Hi I am a Canadian citizen, and I am thinking of buying a property in the usa, I know I can stay for 6 months, but if I wanted to stay longer what would I have to do? We have thought we would like to open a small business there as well can anyone tell me what the procedure is and how to apply . thanks

The visa is the E2. You'll need to invest a minimum of $200k. The business should employ Americans. Either you need to do a lot of research on the procedure or hire an attorney. Don't fall into the trap of buying the business and then trying to make it fit the visa
