ACCOMODATING THE RENTERS TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR MORTGAGE PAYMENTS

“Mortgage Helpers” is a huge trend as of late and the demand is high for rental properties in the inner-city. This has resulted in more development of multi-family properties, more permits being requested from the City and more legalized suites being added to existing properties. The trend of focusing on secondary suites helps with one’s mortgage payments and facilitates the common goals of affordable inner city living and being mortgage-free faster. We are seeing more and more clients purchase R2 Zoned properties, building a duplex to occupy one side and renting the neighboring unit. Or, adding a carriage suite over their garage (i.e.: Currie Barracks and Garrison) to accommodate rental income. Does being mortgage-free faster sound like something you’re interested in? Van Manna Homes is here to help and provide simple solutions for maximizing your investments. Visit www.VanMannaHomes.com for more information about your future income property!

What’s Happening in Inner-City Calgary?

By | Market News, News - Company, News - General, Uncategorized | No Comments

DOWNSIZING

Over the last couple of years we have seen a change in the home-buying trends in Calgary; more people are downsizing to inner-city infills, leaving their larger sprawling homes and acreages for the more suburban and amenity-filled communities. The trend seems to be mainly baby boomers and the empty-nesters of the city. They are slightly smaller places in terms of square footage but in more appealing locations, in the trendy inner-city neighborhoods with proximity to walk everywhere. Visit Van Manna Homes online or contact us today to inquire on how we can help with your transition to a spacious new infill today!

 

Currie Life

The latest inner city build by the Van Manna team is underway! This is a fantastic three-storey infill in Currie Barracks at framing stage.
Currie Barracks embodies the classic inner city lifestyle, with all your must-have amenities just a few steps away. And of course, downtown Calgary is just a short drive away! Another huge perk to living in the Currie Barracks community is easy access to tons of trails and pathways, with amazing views and gorgeous new homes (especially the one we’re building!).
