With forty years of Rocky Mountain real estate experience between them, Spring Creek real estate sales manager Ross Jansen and senior sales associate Ann Ricord have seen it all.
Recessions, booms, and balancing acts in the recent history of real estate in the Bow Valley have given Ross and Ann the perspective to help potential buyers make the right choice for investing in our idyllic region. And the future looks bright.
“I’m bullish on Canmore, that there’s still room to grow,” says Ross. “It’s so unique.”
INVEST IN WHAT MATTERS TODAY
Ann and Ross agree that the most important part of buying in Canmore is taking the first step to get into the market. With the diverse inventory at Spring Creek, finding what meets your needs today in terms of space is what matters.
“Once you get in and live in it for a while and use it, you may decide you want something bigger or smaller,” Ross advises. “Don’t overbuy the first time you come into the marketplace. Get to know the community. You can always change.”
CONNECT WITH YOUR PEOPLE
“Buying a home in Spring Creek is like buying into the whole neighbourhood,” says Ann.
If you’re looking to build friendships and find a sense of community in the Rockies, Spring Creek fits the bill. All Spring Creek owners are included in the Spring Creek Property Owner Association, which hosts events including wine tastings, guided hikes, and an annual block party.
CONSIDER THE CONVENIENCES
Your deal breaker in deciding where to purchase in the Rockies may come down to the neighbourhood’s conveniences. At Spring Creek, owners enjoy walkability to downtown Canmore without having the hustle-bustle in their backyard.
And with restaurants, a coffee shop, a hair salon, an art gallery, and a deli in the community, among other amenities, there are a lot of conveniences at Spring Creek to help make that decision easy.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that there’s no time to waste in pursuing the lifestyle we’ve dreamed of. Ross and Ann have noticed an uptick in “reverse commuters” at Spring Creek: people who work in Calgary but commute to Canmore to live full-time.
The rise in remote work has created a new body of residents who are discovering new ways to enjoy year-round living at Spring Creek.
