Alberta Real Estate Information

Alberta Real Estate Listings

If you are looking for real estate in Alberta, you have a wide selection to choose from.   From glacier-blanketed mountains, dinosaur fossil-rich desert badlands and vast prairies to prosperous modern cities replete with world-class recreational and cultural facilities, Alberta mixes rugged with refined and does it with style.  Your choices in homes and real estate can vary from cabins in the mountains, farm land in the prairie to condos and lofts in Calgary.

The westernmost of Canada's three Prairie Provinces is a land of many terrains, becoming progressively flatter as you travel eastward. Near the western boundary with British Columbia, there are many cabins for sale within the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, internationally renowned for skiers, climbers, hikers and nature buffs. Elk, mountain goats and grizzly bears are a common sight in Banff and Jasper, the two best-known Rockies national parks. Banff's Lake Louise, with graceful, snowy mountains embracing bright turquoise, is one of the world's loveliest lakes. Alberta has more land in national parks than any other province.

As you travel east, the Rockies give way to rolling foothills that diminish until the vast prairie takes over west of Calgary. The largely treeless plain runs clear across Alberta's southeast, through Saskatchewan and most of southern Manitoba. Here you can find farm land homes for sale with rich, black soil for nurturing crops like wheat and canola. The plains have a ranching tradition that has imbued Albertans a proud cowboy heritage. Rows of grain elevators along a railway track are still the landmarks that unmistakably engrave a town's identity as Prairie, but the towering wood structures are slowly disappearing as highways replace the old small-town railway branch lines.

Archaeologists have excavated fossils of dinosaurs and other prehistoric life forms from the badlands of south-central Alberta. The barren, dusty region is also home to modern-day scorpions, rattlesnakes and horned lizards. The scarce badlands plant life includes cacti and tumbleweeds.

Hunting, hiking and camping are popular in the forested wilderness of central and northern Alberta. Abundant lakes and rivers provide opportunity for lakefront property where locals enjoy whitewater rafting, canoeing and fishing.
