Alberta Real Estate
Let’s be honest. We all love to poke our heads through those homes that are out of our price range. Those incredible homes across Alberta seem distant and we all love it when one of them pops up for sale around you. You finally get to sneak a peek at what the place looks like from the inside. The dream of affording some amazing Alberta real estate is truly a dream that many Albertans have. We’ve been real estate agents for several years, and we still get caught up in that emotion of wondering “What would it feel like to actually live here?”
If you are counted among the few who look through homes because you are looking for your next property, the process is slightly different from simply buying normal property. Let us help you understand what you need to know before you go out to your home purchase.
Here are some amazing Communities that you can browse through and get a feel for the areas.

Alberta Luxury Real Estate
There are a few areas in Alberta that have more luxury homes than others. While we’ve been working in Calgary for several years, it’s still a thrill to visit some of the high-end streets around the cities of our amazing province. But some communities are more favourable towards luxury homes than others. We find a high number of exclusive large houses in Mayfair, Bel-Aire, and Upper Mount Royal to name a few. The newer communities of Auburn Bay and Mahogany have incredible luxury homes on the water. And places like Royal Oak and Rocky Ridge have several streets with above-average homes.
But let’s look beyond the incredible communities and see what it takes to find the perfect luxury home.
Use an Alberta Real Estate Agent
It (almost) goes without saying that to get the best deal on homes in Alberta, you need to use a good real estate agent. The best agents have both the expertise and the experience to spot a great home amongst the thousands of listings. Alberta real estate can be a tricky minefield and finding good luxury homes can take a trained eye. Let a knowledgeable real estate agent handle your dream home purchase.
Find a luxury home that does more than looking good on the outside. There are certain expectations that come along with buying a home in the higher price ranges. You should demand modern amenities as standard. Among the top requested features for luxury homes are home theatres with recliner seating, soundproof rooms, and large screens. Look for high-tech additions like wired speakers and automated services. Some of the finer luxury homes have wine storage rooms, butler pantries, and a private gym. Your garage could even have a showroom or studio included as well.
Prepare Your Finances
We have seen so many amazing deals slip through the fingers of possible homebuyers because they did not prepare their finances. If you lose a job or the market takes a crash, those mortgage repayments can quickly overwhelm even the most affluent residents. The financing of a any home should be your utmost concern. Many high-end homes require financial approval disclosed before a showing can take place. Take the time to discuss your situation with a responsible financial advisor and your bank before committing to that perfect home.
When it comes to buying a new home, many places can look amazing. We’ve been to some incredible homes all over the province. Many of the luxury homes are astounding, breathtaking and have every amenity you could desire. Don’t let that beauty blind you to the reality of your purchase. Take the time to look past that “wow factor” to dig deep on the property. Is it close to good schools? Are all the maintenance records up to date? What’s the reason for the sale? Will the house suit you if you have more children (or if children leave home)? These all play a part in your decision and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. So be picky and see as many places as you can.
