Music Mile: Tyrell Dasilva found the perfect condo on Inglewood's eclectic main street

When it came time to purchase his first home, finding a neighbourhood with a pulse was at the top of the list for 31-year-old entrepreneur Tyrell Dasilva. Dasilva, who owns several businesses, leads a busy life and wanted to find a home in a walkable community with access to great music venues and quaint mom-and-pop stores. He found it at i.D. Inglewood, a 19-unit, four-storey condominium project located on Ninth Avenue S.E.

Community Profile: Little Bow Resort

Just an hour-and-a-half south of Calgary and only 30 minutes from the town of Vulcan lies a little-known gem. The Little Bow Resort and its collection of 250 bare land condominium properties is located along the sandy shores of Travers Reservoir, a 17-kilometre-long lake with crystal clear waters fed by the Little Bow River.

"It really is beautifully clean, and it is a deep lake and quiet, so you can really enjoy boating and all of the sports that go along with it," said Calgary real estate professional and Little Bow property owner Bill MacDougall.

February 2020: Home sales see a bump

This month saw a double-digit gain in sales, but last February was one of the slowest levels of activity since the late '90s.

With the extra day this February, monthly sales totaled 1,197 units.  A combination of these two factors resulted in a 23 per cent improvement over last year, but sales remain well below longer-term trends and consistent with the lower levels reported over the past five years.

Despite recent hiccups, developers remain optimistic about Calgary condo market

$500,000 - $750,000

Diversity and volume of home options offer something for homebuyers of every stage

There is no such thing as a "typical" home in the $500,000 to $750,000 price range in Calgary's market today.

"It is more than a starter home, but no mansion," said Ray Riley, a REALTOR® with RE/MAX First. "It could even be a teardown in a desirable (inner-city) neighbourhood, or a luxury apartment downtown. It just depends on what the buyer is looking for, and where."

$300,000 and under

Limited budget need not limit buyer options

A dollar may not go as far as it used to, but $300,000 can still take Calgary homebuyers a long way.

"At that price, you could look at a one- or two-bedroom apartment with underground or outside parking, and an elevator if you want a high-rise," said Monique Windrem, a REALTOR® and leasing agent with Hope Street Real Estate Corp. "You might get extra storage, and if you opted for a one-bedroom, you may also have a gym, concierge and security if you're not set on living downtown."
