Calgary has the most affordable housing market in North America*.
Investors, house-hunters and renters can choose from brand-new detached houses, heritage homes in established neighbourhoods, attached homes and multi-family dwellings, condos, townhouses and lofts.
The rise in mixed-use developments means living outside of the core and living close to work are no longer mutually exclusive.
You can compare neighbourhoods with the City of Calgary Community Profiles tool.
If you are new to the country, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Newcomer’s Guide to Canadian Housing has an entire chapter on buying a home.
In 2019, only 54 per cent of Calgary homes were single-family homes, while 10 per cent were townhouses and 22 per cent apartments.
