Calgary Bowness Montgomery Real Estate Home News - Blog Archive: June, 2022

Our ecosystem is powerful; but fragile. One missing link can set off a catastrophic domino effect, just as when one area of it is thriving, the rest has the opportunity to thrive. One member of this ecosystem is our precious pollinator: the bee. Bees don't simply gather nutrients from flowers for their own honey and hive; they also help to cross-pollinate plants to ensure greenery thrives and continues to regenerate every season. Without bees, our ecosystem would be in serious danger. 

The biggest threat to bees is, believe it or not, us! With more land being developed, natural habitats are lost. With carefully manicured and planned our gardens and lawns, the plants bees need for their nutrients are cut down and plucked like weeds. With insecticide and…

***ATTENTION ALL BUILDERS and or INVESTORS!*** Just listed is a huge 29x229ft R-C2 south rear lot in the heart of Bowness!!

Happy National Indigenous Peoples Day! 

The Government of Canada writes, "this is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

Why June 21st, Summer Solstice? For many Indigenous groups, summer solstice is an important day of celebration and ceremony. Peter Bellegarde, the National Chief of The Assembly of First…

We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: right now Calgary is in the midst of an incredible hot real estate market. Houses are selling quickly, and there is not enough inventory to meet the intense demand of consumers. While we are already starting to see things cool off, experts are predicting the market will remain hot right through to the end of the summer before going back to a more normal conditions.

If you’re in the market to buy a house, this is a challenging time. We are in a Sellers Market, which means market conditions are favouring the seller over the buyer. This is the case because there are more buyers than sellers, resulting in limited inventory that is selling quickly and way over asking price. Does this mean you should put off…
