Finding a Neighbourhood that Fits
The record-setting population growth witnessed in Calgary in the past few years may have slowed its pace a bit in keeping up with the economy, but the migration trend remains strong. Calgary continues to attract newcomers from all over the world who all face the same housing question upon arrival – what would be the ideal neighbourhood?
Whether they are relocating from another country or just planning a move across town, Calgarians are faced with dozens of choices when it is time to target neighbourhoods. Our city is home to a young, diverse and vibrant population. Consequently, our communities reflect that same diversity and youthful energy.
Finding a property that offers the best fit is more than just choosing a condo or detached home with the right number of rooms in your preferred architectural style. What is most important is choosing an area that matches your lifestyle predilection. A seemingly perfect dream home situated in the wrong locale will not satisfy a homeowner for very long. Do you plan on having a car? If so, will you be using it to commute to work? Do you have children or plan on starting a family? If yes, then accessibility to quality schools will probably be a major concern. Is proximity to downtown Calgary a necessity? Do you eat out often and frequently crave for ethnic food? Is having a mountain view and access to parks and green space essential? Proficient Realtors will work to discover the answers to these and many other questions during the initial interview with clients.
The four quadrants in Calgary are populated with 198 distinct neighbourhoods. With so many options, Realtors also function as tour guides - undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable parts of the job. Work with an experienced Calgary Realtor to find the one that is totally suits you.
