Why Buy in Edmonton?
Have you ever asked yourself that question? I know I have. I’ve questioned the idea in my head once or twice. What makes it so great from a business stand point, what is the job market like and is it really worth buying in Alberta? The short answer is: yes… wait, the answer is HECK YES! There is something great about Edmonton besides the Roger’s Place at the Ice District in downtown.
According to The Culture Trip, houses on average are roughly $350K. Which, for the most part, is true. Prices have not doubled in the last 10 years and have been surprisingly steady and unchanging in this period of time. Edmonton is one of the cheapest Canadian cities to live. With over 1.3 million people in surrounding areas and roughly 900K living in the city, the capital of Alberta has so much more to offer than our rival city, Calgary (there's that "Battle of Alberta" happening).
Our Real Estate market has been receiving some hate due to the increased growth of the city within the last six months but it benefits those eager to buy. This means you'll receive a steal-of-a-deal that you won't get anywhere else. The best places to buy are downtown and the south side right now!
So the question is, why Edmonton? Why buy here? If you want more bang for your buck, Edmonton is relatively cheap. Cheaper housing than Calgary, one of the best job markets, minimum wage is one of the highest across Canada, awesome people and lower gas prices because we’re an oil province! Go here to get started
