THE IDEA: I was racking my brain for affordable areas to recommend to my clients that could still offer great amenities like public transit, walk-ability to schools & amenities, as well as trendy hangouts, or natural areas to be active outside, but at a lower price point than the more mainstream, everyone asks for type areas. And that's how this blog segment came to be!
Since I live in the west end, and can attest to all the qualities I will mention, I've decided to start here. Here goes!
NEIGHBORHOOD:Elmwoodis a west Edmonton neighborhood, wherethe average home currently sells for about $354,000. The lots are reasonably large (50X120-30 f t lots are quite common) While the majority of homes are small bungalows with room for some sweat equity, you will also find a number of top to bottom renovation projects (These sell around $400,000) and most recently, a couple of skinny homes!

COMMUNITY: Currently about 48% of the residents in Elmwood are under 40, and according to City of Edmonton data, there are over 200 kiddos under the age of 9 living here. So, what's super amazing about this community in particular is that Elmwood Community League is always working extremely hard to ensure ample opportunities for the kids and families in the community to get to know each other! Check out Elmwood events here. Or follow the community on Facebook here.
TRANSIT: If you use public transit regualry, then Elmwood is certainly a neighborhood you should consider. There are a number of stops within the neighborhood, and with only a short walk to West Edmonton Mall transit Center, it's super convenient to get around the city from here. If youre looking to make a long term investment, you may realize the value of having the Valleyline West LRT line just outside your door. The city is currently in the planning phase, but this neighborhood will certainly become more valueable and popular once it arrives! This is exciting news for the west end!
