Calgary, Alberta is one of the most beautiful and dynamic cities in Canada. Known for its breathtaking natural beauty, friendly people, and diverse economy, it's no wonder that many people are interested in buying a home in this city! However, before you start your home search, it is important to understand the significance of location when it comes to buying a home in Calgary.

In this article, we'll discuss the importance of location in Calgary when buying a home and what you should consider when looking for the perfect location.

Why is Location Important When Buying a Home?

The location of your home can affect many different aspects of your life, including:

  1. Commute Time: The location of your home can have a big impact on your commute time to work or other important places you need to visit on a regular basis. If you live in a location that is far away from your workplace or the city center, you may have to spend a lot of time commuting each day. This can be both expensive and tiring.
  2. Access to Amenities: Location can also determine your access to amenities such as grocery stores, schools, parks, shopping centers, and other community facilities. If you live in a location that is far away from these amenities, you may have to spend more time and money to access them. Think long term, do you want kids in the future? Are you buying in a good school district? 
  3. Safety: The safety of your home is also affected by its location. Some neighborhoods in Calgary may have higher crime rates than others, and it's important to consider these factors when buying a home. Additionally, the location of your home can also affect your insurance rates and your sense of security. 
  4. Property Value: The location of your home can also affect its value over time. Homes located in desirable neighborhoods may appreciate in value more quickly than those in less desirable areas. Alternativley homes in poor locations lose value faster than homes in great locations. It's important to consider the potential for future growth and development when buying a home.
  5. Lifestyle: Your home's location can also play a big role in your overall lifestyle. If you enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, or skiing, you may want to consider a location that is closer to these activities. Similarly, if you enjoy city living, you may want to consider a location that is closer to the heart of Calgary.

I have sold a property at 3531 Morley TRAIL NW in Calgary
I have sold a property at 3531 Morley TRAIL NW in Calgary.
Looking for a beautiful family home in sought after Banff trail, close to excellent amenities and a quick commute to down town? Or maybe you are looking for an investment property close to the University ? Whichever you choose, this is the home for you! A desirable, large bi-level (~2200 sq ft) that has been tastefully updated and lovingly maintained over the years. Countless renovations have been done recently such as a beautiful kitchen, triple pane windows, luxury vinyl plank flooring , window coverings and LED pot lights (2017) in addition to the downstairs bathroom renovation (2020), furnace (2016),and roof (2012). This gorgeous home has a double attached garage which is rare in these older established neighborhoods, what a luxury! The main floor is spacious and bright. The new windows show off the beautiful hardwood floors and fully renovated kitchen with newer stainless steel appliances. The large granite island makes entertaining easy and has tons of storage. The upstairs is completed with 3 large bedrooms, a functional 4 piece main bathroom with the primary bedroom having a full ensuite! Downstairs feels warm and cheery with large windows, a brand new gas fireplace insert, new 3 piece bathroom and luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout. The laundry room/mudroom is laid out beautifully and follows today's functional trend of having this space to unload coats and shoes before entering the rest of the home from the backyard or garage. The backyard is South facing, sunny and private as there are no neighbors backing the property . You can also enjoy privacy at the front of the home with it facing a large greenspace. Location couldn’t be better with the University of Calgary campus being a 10 minute walk, steps to the amenities at Brentwood Mall, minutes to Foothills and Children's hospitals and surrounded by outstanding schools in the neighborhood (William Aberhart High School, Westmount Charter School and Banff Trail Elementary School).
