I have sold a property at 201 301 10 STREET NW in Calgary.
($10,000 PRICE ADJUSTMENT, MAY 7) Amazing 2 bedroom 2 bath unit in the heart of Kensington. This is the biggest unit (1015sq ft) in the complex, almost 11/2 times bigger than most other units in the complex. The amazing balcony uniquely stretches over the entire length of the unit and overlooks some of downtown and the 10th street buzzing activities and amenities. Very open floor plan and a very spacious and relaxing living room overlooks a very spacious gourmet kitchen normally expected in the more expensive single family homes, plus light colour quartz countertops and lots of kitchen cabinets and storage spaces. Two master bedrooms with ensuites, an in-suite laundry and storage. The unit is currently rented by two, clean, professional gentlemen, who treat the property like their own. At 1015 sq ft on single level unit, it feels more like an open concept bungalow than a condo. This is luxury at its best, at a price that cannot be matched by most comparable downtown condos. SIMPLY PUT, SEEING IS BELIEVING! JUST COME CHECK IT OUT. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. THE AMAZING PICTURES, THO TELL SOME OF THE STORY OF THIS ATTRACTIVE UNIT, YOU'VE GOT TO SEE THE REST YOURSELF. SHOWS 10/10! Come and have a look, it shows 10/10!!

Buying a home is often an emotional decision; perhaps even more so than a practical, financial decision. Real estate marketing has recognized this for decades which is why agents have emphasized curb appeal and staging to their clients. Open houses have featured the smell of fresh-baked cookies and soothing music, all in an effort to appeal to the buyer’s sense of home and comfort.

Many homeowners ponder this question, along with whether they can make adjustments via remodels or additions. The fact is that our tastes, needs, and lifestyles change and evolve over time. The past few years have dramatically changed the way we look at our homes. More people than ever before now work from home. That cute cottage or condo might have been the perfect home base for evening and weekend activities, but fall short of the ideal full-time workspace.

On the other hand, some homeowners have realized that they have underutilized their property. During the pandemic, we saw home cooking, gardening, and crafts boom. Yards have been redesigned to include vegetable beds and fruit trees. Kitchen remodels have emphasized cooking space and gathering areas for the family. For anyone who has lived in their home for 7+years, it’s natural to wonder if the property still suits their needs. Families grow and contract, lifestyles, and jobs change, and as life moves on, homeowners should periodically ask themselves if they would buy their current home today.
