Life events get you moving The decision to move is often triggered by a life event, such as a new job, a new addition to the family or simply because you want a change of scenery. Whatever the reason, it’s important to address what your new needs are before you start hunting for a new place — rather than during. With all of the information available to you these days, it’s easy to get distracted. To keep you on track and up to date on the latest listings available across

Canada, check out this issue and our new website, YPNextHome.ca. Not only will you find an easy way to connect with prospective properties, you’ll be able to dig deep on details such as such as costs, neighbourhood information and much more. Deciding to move is easy, it’s finding the right place that can sometimes be tough. Let us help. Drop us a line and let us know if you have any questions or comments. We’d love to hear from you.

Good news, shoppers. Some great things are happening in Canadian retail and residential real estate, as our story on YPNextHome.ca (nexthome. yp.ca/malls-in-canada) illustrates. Now comes news that Loblaws is committing $1-billion to build new and renovate existing stores, adding thousands of new jobs. This is important because when large retailers undergo major expansions, it’s a sign of good times and that an area is on the upswing. Like proximity to mass transit, schools and other amenities,

being close to shopping is a major attraction for homebuyers. These features are among the keys to enjoying your home while you live there, as well as for potential resale value in the future. Large retailers and commercial ventures don’t just pop up in the middle of nowhere or in declining neighbourhoods. These companies make careful, long-range and well planned-out decisions in lockstep with municipalities and developers, based on hard data, research and demographic information.

cover story

Buyers eager to embrace

Brad Remington’s Legacy Park WITH NEW FLOORPLANS OFFERING STYLISH, yet functional

designs and sought after features at exceptional prices, it’s easy to see why people are eager to embrace Legacy Park. Crafted by Brad Remington Homes, Legacy Park continues the “Love It, Live It, Afford It,” success story that started with Copperfield Park and raises the bar with improved floorplan designs, specifications and presentation with better pricing than ever before.

The first building in Legacy Park sold out quickly and “we sold 50 per cent of the second building at launch in February so we’re really excited about that,” says Bryan Logel, vice-president of sales and marketing of Brad Remington Homes. “The response has been incredible and sales have been amazing; I’ve never been busier despite the economy. “What we’re seeing is that affordability never goes out APR 29 - MAY 27, 2016  |  NEW CONDO GUIDE  11


of style and our homes and pricing appeal to hard working Calgarian’s who want to own their own home and build equity,” he adds. Moreover, buyers are seizing of the opportunity, with the low interest rates and affordability, to purchase rather than rent. Legacy Park, which consists of four, four-storey buildings, provides homeowners with high quality, stylish one-, twoand three-bedroom designs starting at $119,000 and going up to the $270,000’s so they can “Afford It.” The second building presents three new plans: G1, a 691-sq.-ft. two-bedroom, one-bathroom plan with a flex room starting at $179,900; C+Flex, an 825-sq.-ft. twobedroom, two-bathroom plan with a flex room starting at $225,900; and B3b, an 894-sq.-ft. three-bedroom, twobathroom end unit plan starting at $219,900. “We have floorplans that are affordable for every purchaser,” Logel says. “Each home is of the highest quality and super affordable, delivering incredible value with outstanding standards such as nine-ft. ceilings, granite or quartz countertops, and premium made-in-Alberta, soft touch cabinets in a choice of colours so purchasers can choose dual-tone cabinets. An underground parking stall comes with every suite.” The well-appointed interiors also include full-sized kitchens with a stainless steel appliance package that includes a fridge, stove, dishwasher and over-the-range microwave, in-suite laundry with the washer and dryer, 12 YPNEXTHOME.CA


knockdown ceilings and private balconies or patios. Residents can also customize their homes with a full range of options and upgrades. Legacy Park also presents an eye-catching exterior and strong curb appeal with premium Hardie plank siding, brick and intricate detailing. “Everything we’re doing to our homes – exterior and interior – we’re building for the long haul and we’re helping people who want to achieve homeownership,” Logel says. “We truly want people to have equity when they take possession and they know that they’re getting great value. “We’re also so happy with our location in Legacy,” he adds, noting it’s located right across from park space that overlooks a pond with fountain, is literally a stone’s throw away from the ravine and pathway system and a short walk

to future neighbourhood commercial. Legacy Park is located in south Calgary’s Legacy, which is minutes from Stoney and Macleod Trails so residents have access to major traffic corridors and they’re close to the LRT and a wide variety of shops, services and dining amenities up Macleod Trail and in nearby Shawnessey. There is a presentation centre open on site, and Logel says many buyers are visiting showsuites, at Copperfield Park (99 Copperstone Park S.E.), to get a feel for the quality and the look of the homes. The Legacy Park presentation centre is located at 215 Legacy Blvd. S.E., open Monday to Thursday, 2 to 8 p.m., and weekends and holidays, noon to 5 p.m. Copperfield Park III showsuites are open the same hours, and you can visit mylegacypark.com for more information.

Advice | CONTEMPLATING CONDOMINIUMS

Read those documents! Better yet, have a pro read ‘em for you By Linda Palfi

MORE ADVICE ONLINE nexthome.yp.ca/news/advice

PEACE OF MIND is a wonderful thing when you are making a major purchase. When it’s a used car, you have a mechanic check it over before you finalize the deal. If it’s a resale house (or perhaps even new), you’re well advised to have a professional home inspector go through it before you sign off on the purchase. Such steps protect you when you make these substantial investments. In the case of condominium purchase, buyers should know what documents are needed, and then actually read them, although it may be difficult to understand all that these will contain. Even without broad condominium familiarity, though, you’ll be surprised how much of the material will make sense to you, and informs you well enough to reach a conclusion, or to ask further questions. For example, bylaws are in plain English, and if you see “no dogs,” and “no one under age 18,” but you have both a dog and a child, this obviously isn’t the condominium community for you. Beyond your own reading, though, professional help can be invaluable. You need someone to interpret how well or poorly an existing condominium development is governed, managed and funded, what political issues may be brewing, or whether the new condo-home builder is leaving both mechanical and governance issues for future owners to squabble over in years to come. Whether resale or new, every condominium corporation is facing some issues. The question is whether

these issues warrant collapsing the purchase and buying elsewhere. In fact, the need for withdrawal from a purchase is rare, but I’ve seen it happen more than once, and you don’t want to be that rare instance when you should have “walked,” but didn’t. In most cases, your purchase proceeds happily, but it will still be invaluable to know in advance what acceptable issue is pending. A given resale condo might be perfect, even though a professional advisor has alerted you that a special assessment to top up the reserve fund will likely be needed soon. If the price of the home is right, set that much aside, and enjoy condo living. If or when the “cash call” comes, write the cheque without concern. In the case of new condo homes, an example might be that the builder is allowing satellite dishes, but you’ve been alerted that the bylaws prohibit them, and that a discussion about their removal may well take place. As a condominium-specialist realtor, I ensure that my clients receive all the documents we need from the new-home or resale condominium seller information. If the public demands it, more realtors will obtain the training and gather the experience to do this. Sometimes, of course, a realtor is not involved, and some are simply unwilling to assume the liability that accompanies any recommendation regarding a major purchase. In those cases I recommend a third-party documents review, which in recent years has become available in many cities. Such a review costs about the same as a thorough car mechanical inspection, and protects a far larger investment. Google condominium to see if such as service is available where you live. If not, consider using such a service via courier, fax and phone. If none of these are possible, see

if someone you know is a condo property manager, and may be willing to go over the documents with you. Otherwise, have your lawyer go over the legal aspects, such as bylaws, and read them yourself, then ask further questions of the seller, of condo Board members, or of the property manager. Even friends or family who have owned condo homes and perhaps been condo Board members will have insights that can help. The first goal is to avoid those very few condominium corporations that are severely under-funded, that have major un-addressed mechanical issues, or which are politically divided. Beyond that your review, whether assisted or not, helps you to understand about the corporation that you will co-own while you enjoy the private condominium home and its maintenance-free lifestyle. Earn your peace of mind and, if possible, be professionally supported. Linda Palfi is a condominium specialist realtor with Discover Real Estate.

Carlisle offers industry leading promotions to help buyers By Heather Ryan

RECOGNIZING THE difficulty that

many of today’s prospective homebuyers are facing with possible layoffs and tough economic conditions, Carlisle Group has launched two amazing promotions to help people get into home ownership. The first promotion, which was launched in February, is called Job Security Guarantee, says Jim Bryce, vice-president sales and marketing. “The program was started because we realize there are customers who want to purchase, but are concerned they might lose their job unexpectedly.” Through the Job Security Guarantee promotion when people buy a condo from Carlisle Group they sign an addendum to the purchase agreement; if they lose their job, Carlisle will cover their mortgage and condo fees until Dec. 31, 2016, for up to six months, to a maximum of $8,000. Aislinn Bateman, sales administrative manager, explains there is no qualification necessary, but the buyer needs to provide a record of employment, proof of layoff and mortgage information. “It’s a pretty ground breaking idea; I don’t know of any other developer offering this,” Bateman says. “We’re excited about this promotion and being able to assist people during this economic downturn.” Carlisle Group also just launched another innovative promotion called Test Drive a Condo, which basically allows a person to lease a condo before they choose to buy. “For people who are unsure of the market, they can essentially rent the condo first and then they can take their time to make a purchase 20 YPNEXTHOME.CA

MORE TRENDING ONLINE nexthome.yp.ca/news

decision,” Bateman says. “If they like it, they can buy it and they can apply 100 per cent of six months’ rent toward the purchase price.” Customers interested in test driving a condo must provide a preapproved mortgage, damage deposit, references and sign a six- to12-month lease. At any time during the lease

period they can exercise their option to purchase up to 30 days prior to the lease renewal. This promo began April 2 and is available for a limited time. Both promotions are available at Carlisle’s new condo developments in Calgary and Edmonton. “We have 13 projects across Alberta,


and all are four-storey wood frame buildings that offer two-bedroom, two bathroom plus den, and threebedroom units ranging from 724 to 1025 sq. ft.,” Bryce says. In Calgary, Carlisle has immediate possessions available at Legacy Gate in the southwest, Albert Park Station near 17th Avenue S.E.; Riverfront

Pointe downtown; Creekside Village in Airdrie; and Stonecreek in Cochrane. Prices in Calgary start from the $200,000s. As well, in Edmonton, Carlisle has immediate possession this spring at Aurora Greens, Creekwood Landing, Heritage Valley Station and MacTaggart Ridge Gate all in

southwest Edmonton; Vita Estates in the northwest; and Erin Ridge Gate in St. Albert. Prices in Edmonton start from the $180,000s. For more information on Carlisle Group’s various projects and promotions, visit their website at www.carlislegroup.ca. APR 29 - MAY 27, 2016  |  NEW CONDO GUIDE  21

Molly Maid’s top 10

Spring cleaning tips IF YOU’RE GOING to tackle spring cleaning, the experts at Molly Maid can help get you started with these top 12 spring cleaning tips.

1. Simplify your cleaning products Limit spring cleaning products to a quality window/glass cleaner, allpurpose cleaner, tile/grout cleaner and a toilet bowl cleaner.

4. Dust with a damp, clean microfibre cloth Hold the cloth by a corner and lightly mist with clean water from a spray bottle. 5. Pet hair Remove from upholstery with a damp microfibre cloth or rubber glove.

2. The Molly Maid system Clean each room from top to bottom, left to right. This is the quickest and most efficient way.

6. Damp mop First sweep or vacuum floors, then wash the floor in the farthest corner of the room and work your way towards the door.

3. Dust first, vacuum second Dust or dirt that falls to the floor will be picked up by the vacuum.

7. Microwave spatters Fill a cup with water and microwave on high for a few minutes. The steam

Even better, toss the sponge and stick to microfibre cloths. 9. The toothbrush Use a toothbrush for hard-to-reach areas in the bathroom and kitchen. 10.

SAM Awards Honour finest in home building industry By Heather Ryan

IT WAS A NIGHT FILLED WITH EXCITEMENT as both

previous and first-time winners were honoured at the Canadian Home Builders Association - Calgary Region’s 29th Annual SAM (Sales and Marketing) Awards on April 16. The SAM Awards recognizes the outstanding achievements by the home building industry’s finest from builders and developers to marketing and sales professionals and this year there were 830 entries and finalists competed for 60 awards in 10 different categories. A strong group of contenders were in the running for this year’s Grand SAM Award for Multi-Family Builder of the Year, which ultimately saw Avi Urban, a division of Homes by Avi, come out on top. “To be given the opportunity to carry the recognition as the Multi-Family Builder of the Year feels great,” says Charron Ungar, president, Avi Urban. “At Avi Urban, we work hard every day without any expectations for an award, but when you get a nod of respect from your partners and your competitors for a job well done, it gives you and your team a great sense of pride and accomplishment.” 28 YPNEXTHOME.CA

Avi Urban also won the Multi-Family Home Award for Best Town Home – $300,000-$359,999, along with the Janine Coughlin Marketing Campaign of the Year Award and was a finalist in several other categories. Jayman Modus captured three Multi-Family awards: Best Multi-Family Community for Ebony in Mahogany; Best Apartment-Style Condo – One Bedroom + Den; and Best Apartment-Style Condo – Two Bedroom & Up. “The SAM Awards carries recognition as a mark of excellence in the eyes of the industry and public,” says Larry Noer, vice-president, Jayman Modus. Earning the Best Community Award “is a remarkable win as so much thought went into the overall design to encourage a sense of community and pride of ownership.” Meanwhile, Brad Remington Homes won the MultiFamily Best New Design Award for Apartment-Style Condo up to 699 sq. ft. “We were so thrilled and humbled to have seven nominations and feel extremely fortunate to win for our G floorplan at My Legacy Park,” says Bryan Logel,

Property Profile | GROSVENOR AMERICAS & CRESSEY DEVELOPMENT CORP.

Parents help young buyers establish homeownership

in Avenue DESPITE THE RECENT ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN in Calgary,

many of today’s young buyers are finding the local market out of reach and taking on higher levels of debt than ever before to get into homeownership. This is why developers Grosvenor Americas and Cressey Development Corp., creators of the fabulous Avenue twin towers at 5th Avenue and 10th Street S.W., are seeing an increasing number of young buyers seeking the support of their parents in an effort to lessen the financial burden while taking advantage of the opportunity to build equity on properties that are holding value. Parents Karen and Rod are among many who have helped remove the financial hurdle of first-time homebuying by assisting with the down payment on a home for their daughter and her fiancé. “They were interested in living downtown and a condo was an affordable option with the one bedroom plus den layout,” the couple says. “They did not want yard maintenance and some of the tedious aspects that come with having a larger home.” “We helped with the down payment because it would 40 YPNEXTHOME.CA

take them at least five years to afford a down payment, and by assisting them now with the purchase, it allows them to build equity much sooner instead of waiting several years while they saved up enough for a down payment. The mortgage payment (including paying us back on a monthly schedule) will cost the same as renting.” Their daughter and fiancé did substantial research on 15 to 20 different multi-family developments. “We initially had a great experience when we went into the Avenue presentation centre, as Sarah and her team were very professional, welcoming and friendly,” the parents note. “The CresseyKitchen with a gas cooktop and stove was also a huge draw, as they really enjoy cooking. Avenue had a few different one-bedroom plus den options, which was important to them, and the price was in our budget. We feel the layout we went with is excellent. The location is awesome, as it’s so close to Kensington, and Grosvenor is an established developer with many projects under their belts, which gave us peace of mind.” They purchased a 750-sq.-ft. condo, with an anticipated possession date of March 2017. “We’re very happy with the choice and we hope it will be as wonderful as we’re all imagining.” The increasing growth and stable investment of a new build in the admired West End, where Avenue is under construction, was also a bonus. Avenue is comprised of 319 suites with in two towers, which include a mix of townhomes, flats, tower suites and a two level penthouse suite, says Robert Duteau,


senior vice-president development, Grosvenor Americas. “It offers a great location in the well-established West End just steps to the downtown, river pathway and charming Kensington, combining urban convenience with serene residential living.” As well, the C-Train is two blocks away and access to the Plus15 is within a short walking distance.

Top 5 Calgary spring & summer festivals you don’t want to miss By Cody Battershill

CALGARY’S SPRING and summer

8 easy ways to Green your condo By Jackie Marchildon THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO MAKE your home Green.

Here are a few simple tricks. 1. Move your fridge into the shade: Leaving your fridge in the sunlight forces it to work harder and wastes energy. 2. Replace your incandescent light bulbs with LEDs: LEDs use less electricity, produce less heat and last longer than your average incandescent light bulbs. 3. Put up thick curtains in the winter: You’ll keep warmer in the colder months (sadly we have many of them) without having to crank the heat and you’ll conserve energy in doing so. 4. Sign up for online statements: You’ll save money (some financial institutions charge for paper statements), de-clutter your home and save trees in the process.

5. Use vinegar to clean: Clean everything and anything you can with vinegar; it’s the perfect all natural multipurpose cleaner! 6. Install a water-saving shower head: Admittedly the wrong low-flow shower head can make for a bad shower but nowadays there are many water-saving options that don’t compromise pressure. 7. Buy local produce — and walk to the market to get it: The less your food had to travel to get to you, the better — and who doesn’t love a good local farmers’ market? 8. Open your blinds: Avoid turning on the lights in your house and instead open your blinds to allow the sunlight to naturally brighten and warm your home.

Early 2016 Calgary & Edmonton Home Buyers Benefit Most From Market Conditions Choosing the right season to enter into a typical real estate market as a buyer involves trading off between a greater level of purchasing power in the fall/winter months – typically characterized by lower levels of sales and listings – and a greater level of choice in the spring/ summer months – characterized by higher levels of sales and listings. As spring has now sprung, one should expect to see more ‘for sale’ real estate signs in bloom across the Calgary and Edmonton regions. Usually, inventory increases would come as a relief to any winter-market buyer who was unable to find his/her perfect home amongst winter’s stock. However, recent market conditions at any time of year have experienced unusually high existing, and new home inventory levels. Despite this level of choice, home purchasing levels within these markets have remained seasonally low, and lower by comparison to 2015. Recent buyers have exercised some of the strongest levels of purchasing power seen within these markets in over 6 years (see table below).

In fact, the savings earned by these buyers strongly outpaced current annual expectations, which call for annual average single-family (SF) and multi-family (MF) price savings of -2.2% and -1.5% respectively across the Calgary region, and -2.5% and -2.7% respectively across the Edmonton region. Looking ahead, 2016 will likely continue to be an odd year in terms of real estate inventories, as supply levels will fall on average throughout most of the year. This will no doubt be the trend amongst new housing supply as total housing unit starts were down -51% across the Calgary region and down -61% across the Edmonton region in the first quarter of 2016. For prices, these supply reductions will help ensure less price flexibility within the Calgary and Edmonton regional real estate markets, making today’s buyer’s position the strongest we’ll see for the foreseeable future. To put it simply, now is the time to buy.

Average household income SUNNYSIDE AND KENSINGTON are

two of the most beautiful inner-city neighbourhoods you will find in Calgary. Steps away from the Bow River, residents find themselves in nature with an incredible view of downtown Calgary. This vibrant and bustling community is overflowing with great coffee, amazing food and fantastic retail. Lifestyle Sunnyside-Kensington has a vibrant and cultural lifestyle that encourages residents to be active and get outdoors with their family. It is a small-business owner’s paradise with a lot of support from the Business Revitalization Zone and other retailers. With its wide selection of great restaurants and cafes, you can expect to see the rest of Calgary flocking to this foodie hub on a regular basis. Vibe People often describe the area as half yuppies and half hippies — an exaggeration, perhaps, but the mix of luxury shops and high-end dining with indie coffee and consignment shops furthers that thought. 54 YPNEXTHOME.CA

Meet the neighbours Baby boomers meet hipster barisatas with a healthy dose of young families, resulting in a diverse, vibrant and cultured community. The area houses higher income professionals, while young artists and musicians also choose to call it home. An abundance of parks and schools make this area desirable for families that are active and passionate about living in a welcoming and flourishing community. In the area Living in this area is more expensive than other inner-city neighbourhoods. However you can still afford to get great food and coffee for a decent price. The Safeway grocery store is among the most expensive locations in the city, but the frequent local markets make it easy for consumers to buy produce directly from its source. Planes, trains & automobiles Sunnyside-Kensington is excellent for utilizing Calgary’s public transit system, with bus and train services catering to residents and visitors. A thriving cycling community means bikes are

more visible on the roads and plenty of bike racks are dispersed throughout the neighbourhood. Cars are also welcome, thanks to the very busy 10th Street, but good luck trying to find parking in the area. Real estate The real estate market is booming in Sunnyside-Kensington. Beyond the beautiful heritage homes that inhabit most of the area, there are many renovation projects in the works along with brand new condo developments. There is also a fair amount of mid-century walk-up apartments that are ideal for renters. However, finding the right home might take some time due to low vacancy throughout the inner city.
