Some Advantages Of Living Inner City

Some Advantages Of Living Inner City

There is a reason certain people choose to set up their home base in Calgary’s inner city. They long to be in the thick of it. They want to be where the action is. They want to live and breathe the hustle and bustle of urban living. There is always something exciting going on downtown. Inner-city living is not for everyone, but for a particular group of Calgarians, the heart of the city is the best place to call home. Here are some of the reasons that living in the core is so extraordinary.

If you are looking for the perfect place to call home in Calgary’s inner city, The Eklund Group is an expert real estate team with extensive experience buying and selling in the heart of Calgary.

Why Choose Inner City?

There are advantages to choosing suburban living; homes are often less expensive, there is more space, and it can be quieter. But that lifestyle is not for everyone. If you crave a more urban existence, inner city is the way to go. Here are just some of the advantages of choosing inner-city living.

1. The Best Of The Best
The best the city has to offer is often highly concentrated downtown. High-end and funky boutique shopping, world-class cuisine, pubs and clubs, pro sports games, music concerts, cultural events like theatre and ballet, libraries, galleries, and museums abound in the city’s core.

2. Shun The Commute
Imagine not having to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic twice a day. Imagine being able to walk to work. Imagine the easiest access points for public transportation. When you live downtown there is no need to imagine, the dreaded suburban commute doesn’t factor.

3. Take Your Pick
Planned developments and tract houses limit your home choices in many suburban neighbourhoods. But inner-city communities offer every kind of home imaginable. Choose high-rise condo living in the East Village, brownstone row houses in Mission, historic river-front estates in Elbow Park, shiny architectural new builds with sweeping city views in Crescent Heights, charming war-time bungalows in Winston Heights. Inner-city living does not have to mean cramped apartments.

4. Stay Central
Inner-city living is great, but not everything is downtown. There is something to be said about the easy access afforded by living in the centre of Calgary’s sprawling landscape. As the confluence of most of the city’s main transportation thoroughfares, downtown provides a convenient escape when you need to venture away without having to worry about traversing from the farthest points of suburbia clear across the city.

5. Breathe It In
City centres have the notoriety of being smoggy, stifling, and stagnant. This is not true for Calgary’s downtown dwellers. Some of the city’s most picturesque and breathtaking greenspaces can be found right in the centre of town. Think Prince’s Island Park, the Elbow River Pathways, Sandy Beach and River Park, and Century Gardens. Calgary also boasts unique urban greenspaces like the Devonian Gardens and High Park located on a parkade rooftop.

6. Get Out Of The House
Big houses seem to be the markers of success in the suburbs. Living rooms, family rooms, dens, bonus rooms, formal dining rooms, eat-in kitchens, developed basements, and spare rooms can give families the space to grow and sprawl. Inner-city homes are often smaller, but there is an advantage to that. When you live downtown, it is not about being in your home all the time. It is about having a home base from which you venture out to explore all the excitement and experience your city has to offer.

Your Inner-City Experts

Inner-city living isn’t necessarily the right choice for everyone, but if you want easy living in the heart of the city, it might be the right choice for you! 

If you are seeking the perfect inner-city home base for all of your urban adventures, choosing a Calgary Realtor® who can provide the tools and insight you need to make the most informed decisions is key. With options for condo living, luxury estate homes, single-family historic homes, contemporary new builds, and more, The Tanya Eklund Group can guide you to find your perfect downtown dwelling. If you are interested in buying or selling in Calgary’s dynamic city core, connect with our team by calling 1-403-863-7434 or through our online contact form and let’s find the best place for you to call home.

Absolutely! Selling and buying at the same time can be tricky to navigate. Some buyers need to complete the sale of their current property before they can even begin to look at new homes. But there are also strategies to bridge the time between selling and buying so you are not left scrambling to find a new place or without a roof over your head after you sell. We can help you figure out the best way to time your sale and purchase so it is as easy and seamless as possible.

Deciding where to make your home base for your retirement years is a big decision. Many people prefer the exciting amenities and maintenance-free living opportunities of the inner city. Some people are not sure it is for them. There are places that offer the benefits of apartment or townhouse living in more suburban neighbourhoods too. When you partner with an experienced Realtor® like our team at the Tanya Eklund Group we can guide you with the right questions and explore different options so that you can find the most ideal place for you.

We would love to meet with you and talk about your goals for selling. We can provide market insight, help you determine the value of your property, give you realistic and honest advice, and we might even have a buyer in mind for you.
