Why Buy a Calgary Infill Home?
- Live in new construction in an established community
- Typically upscale living with luxurious custom built homes
- Walkability to the nearest river pathway, restaurant, or work in the city centre
- Visit the nearby grocery store, home store or shopping mall within minutes of driving
- More time spent with your family and friends and less time spent in traffic
- Good market conditions typically lead to infill homes in Calgary appreciating in value as a result of their exclusivity
Infills are an exclusive type of property found in Calgary’s city centre district in sought-after communities such as Altadore, Killarney, and Hillhurst, for example. The city centre is home to more than 60 nieghbourhoods, almost all of which have experienced a renaissance from old post-war bungalows to brand new infill developments over the past several years.
Infills in Calgary typically come in two forms: attached and detached. Attached properties share a common wall with at least 1 other single-family dwelling, while a detached home is a stand-alone residence.
Calgarians can expect to see more infill properties being built over the next several years; demand from families and urbanites alike is not going away anytime soon. Today, many custom builders are maximizing space with purchased lots by building row-style townhouses with four or more units.
The City of Calgary also has other initiatives in place to increase density and reduce urban sprawl such as the introduction of garage suite apartments – a popular type of investment property in the Vancouver area and in some parts of Edmonton which is making its way to our city.
