Are You Questioning Home Values?

I thought it might be interesting to see what a home located here might be worth in a larger center such as Calgary.  I know there are a lot of reasons why one might pick that location over Rocky Mountain House…but being born and raised here I suppose I’m a bit partial to our beautiful location, quiet community, and amazing westcountry access…in my opinion, those factors are priceless!!  But just for fun I thought I would do some searching and see what the difference in home value is between here and Calgary….so if you picked a home up from our beautiful community with its majestic mountain views, westcountry access, winding rivers, and peaceful natural setting…and dropped it in the heart of Calgary with its many amenities, bustling downtown, highrises and trendy venues, this might be the cost difference….check this out!

Well....strictly my personal opinion but for over a million dollar savings, I'll stay put in Rocky Mountain House, with Calgary and Edmonton just a 2 hour drive away and Alberta's peaceful backcountry right out my front door!  To each his own I guess=)

Cheers,
