Calgary is one of Canada’s most famous cities, and is home to more than a million people. It has plenty to offer in terms of living, being ranked the fourth most “liveable” city in the world — making it the highest rated city in North America.
If you’re looking to make a move to Calgary, or you are already a Calgary-local seeking a new place to settle down, it can be hard finding the perfect spot.
Before you even consider looking for a place to buy, you have to consider the neighbourhood — including safety, the convenience of the location, the nearby amenities, amongst many other factors. We’ve teamed up with online real estate agent Ovlix to help highlight the top five neighbourhoods for real estate in Calgary.
