THOUGHTS: I've currently got a few sets of clients looking for homes in the $350,000 range so I've been sifting through a large number of properties on the daily desperate to find a few well maintained or somewhat updated unicorns; a rarity in this price point. This past year, due partially to instability in the Alberta Economy, new mortgage rules, and rumors of a buyers market, my personal average PSBP (properties shown before purchase) skyrocketed over averages from previous years. Home buyers just really wanted to be sure, before they made a decision this huge. And rightly so.
THE IDEA: So, 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 areas. And that's how this blog segment came to be!
Since I live in the west end I decided to start somewhere close by with Jasper Park. Maybe next I'll do my own neighborhood ;) Here goes!
NEIGHBORHOOD: Jasper Park is a west Edmonton neighborhood, where the average home currently sells for about $336,000. The lots are reasonably large, and the streets are nice and wide. While the majority of homes are small bungalows, some needing more work than others, you will also find, a number of modern single family and townhouse infiill properties, + a top to bottom renovation project here and there.
