Calgary Acreage for sale

As Mark Twain said, “buy land, they’re not making any more.” The appeal of buying rural property for sale near Calgary is more than simply having your own piece of the pie. Owning one of the acreages for sale near Calgary is more than a home. It’s a legacy that can be passed down through the family. Houses can be where you live and sleep and entertain. An acreage is where you do life and create memories.   

Categorized as 1-20 acres, an acreage is a place to grow food, house animals, run wild, and enjoy privacy. It means enjoying the freedom and quiet of having land while remaining close enough to the big city to feel connected. And many residents of the countryside do remain well-linked to their city neighbours. With great schools, shopping, and amenities so close by, acreage owners love their close proximity to the benefits of the city. Let us set up a Multiple listing service search and get results set to your inbox.

Property for sale Calgary

Although you might not instantly see the appeal, here’s why we see people moving out of the suburbs and searching for acreage real estate in Calgary. We find many handymen enjoy having their workshed on their property. Unless you own commercial real estate  it’s hard to find a separate location for your hobby or career that is close to home. Many contractors, builders, hobbyists, and craftsmen enjoy the space to build their own garages and sheds.

Animal husbandry is also popular, with many acreages designed to house livestock and pets alike. If you love horses, an acreage is just the thing to save you from the costs of a private stable. Also, imagine the freedom of riding when and where you choose on your own land.   

Acreages for sale near Okotoks

It’s no understatement to say that life is different on your own land. You might be subject to different zoning laws, regulating what you can do and how you treat your land. Learn all about available services to any acreages you are considering, such as power, water, waste collection, and sewer availability. Consider that you might have more responsibility for septic systems, road management, and snow removal.

Get to know the by-laws and permits that you might need to complete some of your plans. If you want outbuildings or controlled burns, or crops, seek out what you’ll need before you make a decision. Also, be aware how much risk your real estate property has; I.E. how remote it is, how hard it is to escape if any wildlife or fire danger is present...etc
