Common Misconceptions About the Suburbs

Posted by Kirby Cox on Thursday, May 5th, 2016 at 3:12pm.

The suburbs are still the number one choice for Calgarians choosing to buy (according to the 2014 City of Calgary census), and if you've never considered living in the suburbs, they have a lot to offer. There are some common misconceptions about living the suburbs that may be holding you back, and we're going to dispell them right now.

  • The suburbs are too far from everything: this couldn't be farther from the truth in Calgary. Calgary's suburb communities are self-sustaining neighbourhoods which all have easy access to major roadways and transportation options. Almost every suburb community in Calgary is within a 20-minute drive to downtown.
  • There's no amenities: again, each suburb community in Calgary is self-sustaining. There are plenty of schools, stores, restaurants and shops so that if you didn't want to, you'd never have to go further than a few minutes from your home.
  • There's no parks: the City and community developers make a commitment to keeping new neighbourhoods green. Each suburb community is complete with parks, playgrounds, walkways, bike paths and some even have waterways (lakes, creeks, rivers, etc.).

Calgary's suburb communities are beautiful and full of everything you need for the lifestyle you want. If you have questions about suburb living or what communities best suit your needs, feel free to contact us.
