Qualities In A Great Home

If you're like many Calgarians this spring, you may be in the market for a home!

First things first, make sure to contact us today at 403-630-6363 or email Ken@KenRichter.com. We would love to help you find your dream home. Let our experience be your advantage as you navigate this incredibly hot market. When it comes to finding a great home sweet home, we can help you filter through the listings and advise on if a home really is the dream it claims to be.

There are also things you should be looking for specifically. Here are some areas to watch for:

  1. The Neighbourhood: A great home in a bad neighbourhood does not exist. Why? Because the neighbourhood you live in is just as important as the house itself. We never recommend compromising on location, unless there are assurances that the location is on an upswing and you're willing to be patient. Take time to learn about the community your prospective home resides in. You'll be glad you did your research! For example, the communities of Bowness and Montgomery are thriving and family-friendly. These are great locations for your Calgary, Alberta home. 
  2. The Lot: If you are in the market for a stand-alone home, you're not just buying a structure, you're buying a lot. Decide what is important to you. Does the lot need lots of space for kids, a fence for the dog, a garage to work in, or room for the hot tub? Calgary homes are fortunate to have great lot sizes for the most part. It is not a pipe dream to have a nice home on a spacious lot. Don't feel like you have to compromise backyard space in order to get something nice. We can a land title that will show exactly where the property lines are so you get an exact picture of the space you have to work with. 
  3. The Feeling of Home: There is nothing quite like walking into a space and feeling like you've found home. Make sure the house you decide to put an offer on gives you that feeling. 

Lets find your dream home, Calgary!
