Here is what kind of house or condo $1 million can buy you in Calgary
One million dollars isn’t what it used to be when you are looking for a house or condo in Calgary, but it is still a lot.
According to Royal LePage, the average million-dollar home in Calgary is 3.1 bedrooms, 2.8 bathrooms, and 2,242 square feet of living space, 479 square feet more than the national average.
Royal LePage realtor Doug Cabral says the perception of housing prices in Calgary and what $1 million can get you depends on where you are coming from.
“Anyone who’s coming to Calgary, they are absolutely blown away by what you can get for a million dollars here. Whereas Calgarians that are moving within Calgary, they do not believe that you can get that much for a million dollars here,” he says. “And so it’s funny, the two different versions that I get from people migrating here versus people moving from within the city.”
He says in Calgary, $1 million will get you nicer finishes, more square footage, and less of a commute.
