Best Infill REALTOR® in Calgary
First off, let us cover some of the basics!
What is an Infill Home?
If you're not familiar with real estate, or aren't in the industry, you may have never heard of the term "Infill" Essentially an Infill is a new home (with many various styles) located on an old lot and is within a mature and existing established neighborhood.
You'll find Infill homes in various communities within Calgary, we'll cover some of the best Infill neighborhoods within Calgary a little later on, but Infills are usually built when you have an older home that is typically on its last legs sold for the purpose of being torn down and developed as an Infill. This is because the location and value of the land is significant enough in value where a developer or Infill home buyer can purchase land and have a beautiful new infill home built while still maintaining market value.
Infills are in demand throughout the Calgary market
Infill properties throughout Calgary are becoming more and more in demand. The city of Calgary continues to grow and as the urban sprawl extends towards the outer bedroom communities of Airdrie, Okotoks and Chestermere, inner city communities are coming into high demand and with limited homes available and homes that are becoming increasingly aged. the demand for higher end properties in these established communities is making major gains. Developers are also keen on bringing higher density living options into these communities. Typically outside of the downtown core, you wouldn't be likely to find townhomes/row homes or condominium developments, this is because these communities were built in eras where this was simply not in demand.
Buyers of Infill homes love the unique variety and finishes that are seen in these properties. With new developments in newer communities like Belmont - you'll typically just find spec homes with some variance, but ultimately a lot of similarities, while Infills are typically custom builds with unique finishes, styles, and architectural influences. You'll find plenty of custom built Infills that showcase some of the best new construction, finishes, and upgrades seen in the real estate market. These homes are also seen to be more environmentally friendly in comparison to homes being built in new communities. This is due to the fact that the land has already been developed, that means you typically will have little work done as services including gas, sewer, power and roadways have already been built and established.
