Edmonton Real Estate

Located in Central Alberta, Edmonton is a large and well-established city with over 800,000 people.  The real estate market in Edmonton includes 375 neighbourhoods, and includes a wide variety of options for home buyers. As the capital of Alberta, Edmonton is considered to be a centre for culture, education, and government. Offering a host of events, theatres, galleries, museums, and universities enriching the community, Edmonton is a fantastic place to buy real estate.  

Having Fun in Edmonton. Aptly named "The Festival City of Canada," Edmonton is home to several annual festivals. The main summer festival, K-Days, is a lively fair with music, carnival rides, special events, trade shows, and fireworks. Other festivals, to name a few, include the Edmonton Heritage Festival, Edmonton International Film Festival, and the Dragon Boat Festival. When it comes to theatre and performance, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra performs at the specially designed Francis Winspear Centre for Music, which houses the largest concert organ in the entire country. In the neighbourhood of Old Strathcona, you find the Theatre District, home of many different theatres such as the Catalyst Theatre, Varscona Theatre, Walterdale Playhouse, and more.

In the Edmonton River Valley, you can find an enormous amount of urban parkland. In fact, Edmonton boasts of more than 84 different golf courses for you to enjoy. National parks along with golf courses and ski slopes provide a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities for residents. Edmonton is also home to many major sports teams, including the Edmonton Eskimos football team, Edmonton Oilers hockey team, Edmonton Rush lacrosse team, Edmonton Energy basketball team, and the FC Edmonton soccer team.

Job Opportunities in Edmonton. With a thriving economy and an ever-growing job market, particularly in construction, manufacturing, and professional services, Edmonton boasts a low unemployment rate. The city's upsurge in income levels and job opportunities is largely attributed to strong investment activity in Alberta's oil sands. Alberta has one of the largest supplies of oil sand reserves in the world, and Edmonton is considered to be the central location for Alberta's petrochemical industries. Edmonton is also well recognized for its role in generating research around biomaterials and technology, making it one of Canada's leading research centres with institutions such as the National Institute for Nanotechnology located at the University of Alberta.

There has been substantial growth in multiple sectors of the economy including technology, finance, and education. Edmonton's steady demand for skilled labour is not only providing great employment prospects for its residents but is also increasing levels of migration into this region. 

Buying a Home in Edmonton. With 375 individual neighbourhoods, the possibilities for Edmonton homes are endless. You can find a growing selection of condos close to downtown near boutiques and eateries along Whyte Avenue in the historic, yet trendy Strathcona neighbourhood. You can also choose between numerous single family homes in Edmonton that are located within close knit communities like Crestwood and Cloverdale. Situated by the North Saskatchewan River next to the MacKinnon Ravine Park, Crestwood is a beautiful low density residential area that consists of single family homes. A collection of spacious, custom designed homes in Crestwood can be found along Riverside near some of the city's oldest buildings. 

When searching for Edmonton real estate, you will find that the neighbourhoods in this area vary widely. For instance, one of the city's oldest, yet most popular neighbourhoods, is Garneau, which offers numerous multi-unit complexes that sit right next to the prestigious University of Alberta, while newer communities in Edmonton like Windermere host a growing number of new construction homes with several multi-million dollar estates being made available in Upper Windermere.
