I have just today and tomorrow to get through before I am once again in the calming quiet peace that is Banff. I look forward to not having cars zoom by, two feet from bedroom window doing 70 KPH.
I always get more and better sleep out in Banff. I have no trouble sleeping out in the country, yet I do have trouble sleeping in the city. I suppose that’s why I’m looking forward to buying an acreage.
Not only for the workshop, storage shop and other outbuildings (either there now or will be) but also for the peace and quiet, the big sky and the fresh air. All this while still being within commuting distance to the city.
I have been regularly checking the real estate website, and will continue to do so. This is to see what is out there and what the prices they are at. I will keep an eye on things to see if and how much prices come down.
I will also see what new properties come on the market and what ones go off the market. This should give me the familiarity of the real estate market in the area that I am looking to buy in.
I don’t want to get taken advantage of and I want to get the best property that I can afford. I don’t want just a starter home or one that is good for the next few years, but for much longer. I want a place that I could see myself staying in for some time to come.
The closest thing I have now is my trips to Banff on each long Weekend, (the treat that I give myself). While the house is seven or eight months away, Banff is only two days away yet only one sleep away.
