Renfrew: Calgary’s Inner City Hot Spot

Imagine being able to walk to work and save yourself the stress of the morning and evening commutes, not to mention the cost of downtown parking. Well, residents of Calgary’s inner city neighbourhood of Renfrew have this luxury.

Renfrew is a picturesque community perched atop an escarpment overlooking Calgary’s downtown core and beautiful Bridgeland area. This trendy neighbourhood has a lot to offer residents with lovely tree-lined streets, walking and biking trails and eclectic dining options, all just minutes from the city centre.

Real estate in Renfrew is a mix of single dwelling homes, condo style apartments, townhouses and luxury infill residences. With such a diverse mix of property, it is possible for even first-time home-buyers to own a home in the inner city. Regal Park, situated in the heart Renfrew, is a condominium townhouse complex that offers affordability, peace and proximity to a wide array of amenities.

Looking for something fun to do with the family? Renfrew is within walking distance of both the Telus Spark Science Centre and the Calgary Zoo. Renfrew also has a great playground area, outdoor tennis-courts, soccer-fields, indoor and outdoor skating rinks and a City-Of-Calgary Recreation Centre which offers fitness-classes and day-camps in addition to an indoor swimming pool, steam-room and hot tub.

 

Calgary Housing Inventory Up = More Choice for Buyers

Calgary Housing Inventory Up = More Choice for Buyers

It was about this time last year that Calgary’s hot real estate market was difficult for the average buyer to get into. With multiple offers and low inventory buyers felt the stress and frustration and often put their purchase on hold to wait out the frenzy.

Moving forward to the present, inventory has risen and buyers are being offered more choice. The average buyer is not looking to acquire rental properties and is therefore looking to purchase a home to live in and now with a balanced market coupled with low interest rates is a perfect opportunity for buyers to make a home purchase.

Real estate is typically a long term investment and with any investment it is best not to wait too long on a good deal or it could get snapped up.  Short term fluctuations in the market are normal and some may argue that it’s best to get in while you can rather than wait for the market to sky rocket.

Buying a home for your family is something you can hold on to and know that your money is growing in the long term. It’s a place to come home to and create memories in and with Calgary’s balanced market it might be the right time for you.
