Drayton Valley, AB

Brave settlers first made their way to the Drayton Valley area more than 100 years ago, initially making their livings as lumbermen, trappers and, eventually, farmers. The community remained quiet for several years, until black gold was discovered in the area in 1953. The then population of 75 people boomed to 2,000 in only one year, and today Drayton Valley thrives with a young, energetic population close to 7000 and an optimistic outlook.  Drayton Valley also serves many satellite communities.

Located in Alberta’s Heartland, along the Cowboy Trail, it is approximately 133km (83mi) southwest of Edmonton.  It is surrounded by Brazeau County which is known for its vast oil fields. The community comes together often throughout the year for a number of events, and the town's Omniplex is the epicentre for activities, housing ice rinks, a curling rink, conference center and fitness facilities, and is equipped with several outdoor sports fields as well. Drayton residents make their way throughout town using the Drayton Valley Trail System. Thunder in the Valley first roared into town in 2005, and quickly took the lead as one of the most entertaining and energetic events of the year, drawing more than 2,000 spectators in 2006.

If you are one of the lucky Albertans who can realize your dream of owning a home in the country, you will find a few things are a little different.  In the Buck Lake - Alder Flats area, for instance, your water source will commonly be a drilled well, with a pump which brings the water into your residence or cottage.  In most cases, you will have your own septic system as well.  Common ...

Unless you're a real estate expert, you probably look at the market and think things are pretty confusing. Even a bit crazy! You hear news about “bubbles bursting”, “higher or lower home sales in a particular month”, “new home starts” that are up or down, and on and on it goes. It’s a lot of news and a lot of jargon. If you're thinking of selling your home ... Read More...
