This two-bedroom townhouse is in a complex where units recently sold for between $195,000 and $214,000. Its asking price was set much higher at $229,900 due to its prime location overlooking a sprawling 55-acre park in Airdrie, about 35 kilometers north of downtown Calgary. Within a week, he had had five visitors, the last of whom negotiated a reduction of $12,400 to close the deal at $217,500.
“At the time, the market was starting to cool down,” agent Bryon Howard said. “It was lucky for the vendor that this was the only active listing in the complex.”
what they have
In 2012, this townhouse community was built with many one-story units, like this ground-floor model. It has a 794 square foot floor plan with a patio and parking for two cars just beyond the front door.
Inside, there is an open concept living and dining room and a kitchen with a central island. The bedrooms are on the sides and the bathroom is located at the back.
Monthly condominium fees of $331 pay for heating, water and snow removal.
“I was shocked at how low the prices are at this whole resort,” Howard said. “The square footage was small, but this particular unit faces a baseball diamond or green space, and it’s a corner unit, so it was desirable with nice views.”
“A lot of people love Airdrie, it may be one of the fastest growing communities in Canada – or certainly in Alberta –,” Howard said.
“There are tons of conveniences and new shops and box stores, and it’s close to Calgary and Red Deer airports.”
