Take that next step and start investing in your next new home now!

You’re ready for that new place to call home. It might be that your current condo isn’t what you need anymore, or you have decided to take the leap into homeownership for the first time. Whatever it may be, it is always good to see what options are available. 

Buying a single family home after living in an apartment or condo might sound intimidating, but you would be surprised how easy and liberating it can be. With more space, privacy, freedom, and long-term value, single family homes should definitely be in your sights for finding a home that will be best for your needs, both now, and in the future.

You might also be surprised at how affordable the move up to a single family home can be. If you have a condo now, you are paying your rent or mortgage, utilities, condo fees, plus occasional extra expenses, especially going toward your condo reserve fund. All of these expenses can add up to be a lot more than you had anticipated! 

Interest rates are also at record lows. The price of a single family homes with a low rate makes these homes even more affordable, and saves you thousands of dollars in interest over time. Value for a single family home has been on the rise in Calgary for over ten years. Even with market changes, homes that fall below $500,000 sell quickly. Additionally, single family homes can often have a much faster appreciation in value than a condo or townhouse. Due to this popularity, single family homes can also be much easier to sell down the line, due to independent space being so appealing. 

These homes also give you a lot more privacy. You don’t have to worry about condo by-laws for noise after 10pm. You also don’t have anyone beside you, above you, or below you through your walls. Don’t forget about the space! You have more space for snowboards, Christmas decorations, and that vintage clock collection in a single family home! Freedom is a big plus for a new single family home. Because it is freehold, you can alter your property, both inside and outside. You have more control over your maintenance costs, and you don’t have to worry about any restrictions on barbecues, charcoal smokers, or Christmas trees! Another great perk is that there are no pet restrictions! 

Whatever you choose will be the right fit for you. With their high resale value, freedom, privacy and space, a single family home can be a great way to assume the responsibilities of homeownership. If you would like to see some examples of our single family homes, visit our Pinterest page!
