Calgary Real Estate Market Update Newsletter November 2012

Around Town!

Hope you had a safe and Happy Halloween!

November is a month when we remember those in the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. During the week of November 5th to 11th the city, and across the country, numerous ceremonies and events are held to commemorate these men and women. Visit the Veterans Affair Canada site to find an event in your area.

This month is also a time to support the many men's health issues, including prostate cancer, for Movember. If you are unfamiliar with Movember, the official Movember and Sons website, describes Movember this way:

"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces, in Canada and around the world. With their "Mo's", these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives."

If you're a planner, and like to get a jump on your Christmas shopping and decorating, November is the perfect time to get started. The malls are decorated, stores are putting out their Christmas product and if the weather breaks, homeowners are out hanging lights and holiday decorations around their homes. Across the city, and beyond, this month there are a number of events that can help you with all this and more. See below for a few of the more popular holiday events around the city.

I am impressed with your site and I want to invest money in real estate. Can you tell me which is the best place where I can invest money in real estate ?

I think the best investment is in inner city property. There is always a demand to live in teh core and as the city grows the demand gets higher. But it really depends on your proce range and what type of investment you are looking to obtain. There are many different ways to onvest in the marekt from new builds to rental properties. Please feel free to ask me any additional questions or call me at 403-264-7653 direct.
