Hidden Treasures in Calgary’s Real Estate Market

May 19, 2014 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)
I love hidden treasures, variety, and a bit of excitement about the unknown. That’s why I can lose all sense of time when I’m browsing Pinterest and adding home staging ideas to the Set Your Stage boards. It’s that same sense of anticipation when browsing Calgary’s ‘up and coming’ neighbourhoods. There are hidden treasures in Calgary’s Real Estate Market to be found.
 
According to Mark Brown of MoneySense, “Satellite communities around major centres are evolving to deliver small-town flare with big-city conveniences. In that way, many of these communities aren’t just great places to live: they’re Canada’s best-kept secrets.”
 
Add to that the fact that Calgary continues to be one of the top 25 places to live in Canada (actually Calgary’s ranked #2), and the opportunity to get into the real estate market in an upcoming community is definitely appealing.
 
Recently I staged a couple of properties that provide a perfect example of what I mean about hidden treasures.
 
Ramsay
This renovated heritage home looks new while maintaining its charm and traditional elegance. It’s close to Inglewood (another popular up and coming neighbourhood) and a short walk to the Bow River Pathway. Close to the hustle and bustle of the city, this charming home on a tree lined street provides plenty of space inside and out. And perhaps a bit of romance!

After: Beautiful French doors welcome you into the home after you enter through the large door.

Glamorgan
For sale by owner, this is a really cute bungalow that has been gutted and renovated from top to bottom. Glamorgan is another popular upcoming neighbourhood close to 17th Ave and Signal Hill Shopping for convenience. Once you step inside, there’s definite wow factor. Easy to live with finishings and colours make it move in ready. If you like, use your creativity to add wow to the outside.
