Default Proof of funds

Hello

I'd like to apply for the Canadian permanent resident visa as a
skilled worker. I know, that when I arrive in Canada the Customs
officer aks me to show proof of my funds in the form of money,
bankers' drafts or cheques etc.
My question is: Is it allowed to proove my funds with real estate at
the beginning of the procedure, so when I send my application forms to
the Vienna visa office, and sell my house during the procedure and
show the Customs officer the price of it?
I am Hungarian citizen so I belong to the Vienna visa office in
Austria. Is it true that I'm going to be invited for an interview by
the visa offica? What is the role of this interview if my total score
is greater than the pass mark already?
Thank you for your help:

short answer is NO sorry. Know they used to and did with me from UK but that
was then and experts will tell you this is now.

That may be a visa post specific thing but regulars will no doubt answer
that for you.

No, you can't use real estate as proof of funds, sorry. You need to show at
the time of application that you have required amount in convertible
currency, readily available for transfer to Canada.

How about credit card advances? Do those count?

Read here first:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/skilled/qual-4.html

Then read Immigration Regulations, Section 76(1)(b)(i) here:

http://www.canlii.org/ca/regu/sor2-227/sec76%2Ehtml

and pay attention to the phrase "unencumbered by debts or other
obligations".

I strongly suggest to drop your "disco-slamdancing" preface from your posts
and instead to take a good look into dictionary to see what "unencumbered"
means.
