Why Should You Buy a Property in West Springs, Calgary?

Why Buy a Property in West Springs, Calgary?

I Love Calgary's Westside!

Calgary’s Westside is home to many communities with a ton of appeal. One of those neighbourhoods is West Springs, an area that was established just after the turn of the century with a diverse real estate portfolio that provides options for many.

If you’re thinking about making a move to the Westside of Calgary and aren’t sure why this neighbourhood would be a good fit, here’s a few reasons as to why you should buy a property in West Springs. These might help you get off the fence and begin to make some decisions!


#1 – A wide range of real estate options

As mentioned above, West Springs is home to a handful of different phases of development which include both single-family and multi-family properties.

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer and are looking for an affordable single-level apartment, or perhaps an executive seeking a single-family estate home for you and your family, West Springs has it all!

Some prices for condos in some of the older areas of development are usually in the high 200s. Meanwhile, attached and detached single-family homes typically start in the low to mid 500s.


#2 – Not too close, but not too far!

There’s a reason why Westside communities are a go-to choice for urban professionals with families, individuals who may make frequent trips to and from the city centre.

From West Springs, it takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to the city centre, with the lower end of that estimate during a time with clear roads and the other during rush hour. From door to door, public transit can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes depending on where you live and work.

Comparatively, coming from the far southeast community of Legacy or northwest neighbourhood of Evanston, you can expect to take anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes depending on traffic. When using public transit, door to door, expect to add on at least 15 minutes to those previous estimates.

All that the downtown and inner city areas have to offer in terms of restaurants, shops and services are also accessed in a much shorter time than if you were to live in other further away parts of the city.

Going to wine and dine at your favourite Italian restaurant in the Beltline or perhaps taking a cruise along RiverWalk in the downtown area isn’t such a journey!


#3 – Quick access to foothills and mountains

Last, but not least, there are few communities in Calgary, save others in the Westside, that have as quick and convenient access to the foothills and mountains to the west. Many outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and from all walks of life enjoy living in Westside neighbourhoods like West Springs for that exact reason.

After a long day at work, all they have to do is head home and pick up any packed bags and they’re off for the weekend out west into the beautiful foothills and beyond. There’s no city traffic to impede the journey to place such as:

  • Kananaskis Country
  • Canmore
  • Banff
  • Nakiska
  • Mount Norquay
  • Sunshine
  • Lake Louise
  • Jasper
  • Golden

…and many, many more destinations! Road trips to British Columbia? No problem!
