As you probably already know, Calgary has an abundance of beautiful acreage properties. As a future home owner, you have the choice between building your home in a rural area or an urban one. Which one will you choose?
Of course, the rural vs. urban debate has been going on for many, many years. While there are positive sides to both, there are also drawbacks to both. As clichéd as it might sound, the decision all comes down to you and your expectations. In an urban area (think downtown Calgary), you have the advantage of public transportation. Everything is nearby — restaurants, entertainment, people, diversity. Some people can’t live without the rush that living in a big city provides. But is it ideal to build a house and a raise a family in this environment?
Then on the other side you have rural areas: Lush, beautiful and green. When people think of rural, they think of space and nature — and often they are not too far off. If you are the kind of person who absolutely can’t stand the rush of the big city, then living in a rural area might be best for you. Many rural areas also offer a deep sense of community, something which you really can’t get from urban areas.
At the end of the day, you have to remember that everyone is different. What fits someone might not fit another, and vice versa.
