With so many homes for sale and furnished rentals available in Calgary, there will always be a place for you, and your family. However, when it comes to moving to a new area, you should always do your research. But what should you be on the lookout for?
Will the value of the area continue to grow?
Doing research beforehand to see if the area is going to go up in value will be helpful for your investment. Speak to your local property management company in Calgary about the area you’re interested in moving to or investing in. They will be able to provide you with insider knowledge about the area, and see if it is worth the investment.
The crime rate in the area
You never want to be unsafe in your home, so checking out the crime statistics or speaking to a Calgary property management company about the area is essential. The safer the area, the safer you will be (obviously!). You should also see where the closest police station is in case you need assistance, or you’re facing an emergency.
Is it close to the amenities you need?
Do you want to walk 20 minutes to the nearest C-Train or bus stop to get to work? Does it take you 15 minutes to drive to your grocery store? Being close to amenities is important. It will save you time, and provide you with assurances that everything is near you and your family. It’s one of the reasons some properties, and many unfurnished and furnished rentals in Calgary cost a tad more – they’re close to the essentials!
If you have kids, consider the schools in your area. Ensuring you have an easy commute to and from, in addition to easy access to the type of school, will be a bonus to the area you choose to live in.
The culture around the community
If you are looking for a quiet family life, then the suburbs are right for you. If you are looking for the go-getting experience, then living close to Downtown Calgary is for you. You have to inspect the culture around the community to see if it suits your lifestyle. There is no point in living somewhere that doesn’t make you happy.
How close is healthcare?
Regardless of how old you are, you need healthcare. So when inspecting the area, check out how close or far you are from your nearest doctor, medical centre and hospital. You don’t want to be in the middle of nowhere if you need medical assistance. Stay as close as possible to your healthcare centre.
