Live in the south east? Here are your September sales stats:
Activity is heating up, with lots of opportunity for both buyers and sellers.
For those who haven’t checked out Calgary’s south east corner in a while, it’s worth a fresh look. I’ve handled a number of properties in this area in recent weeks, including these three sold: Copperleaf Way, Mahogany Bv and Cranleigh Heath; and this new listing: Cranwell Sq.
With fast-rising communities including Copperfield, Cranston, Auburn Bay, McKenzie Towne, Mahogany and New Brighton, this fresh and dynamic part of the city has undergone a major transformation in recent years, with lots to offer for all types of buyers.
Want an escape-the-city feel? More choice and affordability? How about a lake community or something with a close-to-nature appeal? Add the new ring road close by for easy transportation, fast access to the new south east health campus, and one of the best locations in the city for golf course access. . . there is a lot to appreciate in the south corner!
