With beautiful views, tonnes of opportunities and plenty of like-minded people to meet and bond with, Calgary is a wonderful city that, if you aren’t already, you should definitely consider as a place to live and spend a wonderful life, or few years! Whether you move as a student, alone, or as part of a family, there’s something for everyone in Calgary – if you’re interested, here are our tips to find a home!

Find a Home in Calgary

Approach a Real Estate Agent ASAP
No matter what type of home you’re planning on going for when moving to Calgary, make sure you approach a Real Estate Agent as soon as you can. They have lots of brilliant local knowledge, connections and expertise that can help you find the perfect home in the perfect area for you, which will take a lot of the stress and worry out of finding a home for yourself.

Think about what you need
Your needs are going to be different depending on your situation; if you’re a single person you’re likely to be looking for a small property – perhaps just a room – as a student, it’ll be student accommodation or a flat share, and if you’re moving as a family you’ll need a bigger property. Consider what you actually need when looking into properties, and whether different districts might suit your requirements better.

Research… in person!
Research online and asking friends questions is all well and good, but you can’t really get a feel for an area until you’ve actually visited it and seen what’s what. If you’re thinking of living in the city centre then head over and visit, spend a few days and see if it’s really for you. Likewise with districts, take a visit at different times of the day, different days of the week to get a feel for the area and if it’s somewhere you’d like to live. Research really is key!
