Quick-possession homes continue to be in demand in today’s market. In Walden, we currently have three quick-possession homes for our top selling Evo 1 model. Customers are loving the floorplan, available options and, of course, the price of this model. Since we have seen an increase in sales of our single-family Evo 1 and 2 models throughout 2020, we have made three Evo 1 opportunities available as quick possessions in some of our established phases.

Two of the Evo 1 homes are in phase 23, an established street, and both feature walk-out basements with nine-foot ceilings, large pie shape backyards and oversized decks. You can view the full details, including plot plans, online. Both are listed at $549,900 and includes several upgraded features.

The third Evo 1 home is in phase 28, on another established street backing a treed greenspace. It has a large pie shape backyard with a sunshine basement and spacious deck. This home is also listed at $549,900 and includes several upgraded features.

All three homes include:

  • 9′ main floor ceilings

I wanted to share an opportunity available in Walden for those needing a four-bedroom home, with a main floor office space, over 2200 sq ft, and under $500k. Cardel’s Rohan model, currently built as a showhome in our community of Savanna, has been receiving lots of inquiries. We know that the Covid situation has increased the demand for homes with slightly more space and a main floor office.

The Rohan meets these needs and provides the added benefit of having four bedrooms. There are five lots remaining in Walden that allow for the Rohan to be built at $499,900, including GST. At an appealing $226/ sq ft, the four-bedroom Rohan delivers a lot of value.

Cardel has just released the brand new 2,662 sq ft Modena model. This home features the most popular multi-generational design benefits that we have seen and what we expect to see in the future. We’ve incorporated these all into one outstanding floor plan and packaged it with an attractive price. The Modena includes the following standard features:

  • Main floor bedroom and full bath
  • 4 additional upper floor bedrooms
  • Spice kitchen with integrated large pantry
  • 2 main floor living areas
  • Dual master bedrooms with ensuites
  • Bonus room
  • Oversized laundry center
  • Optional separate basement entrance
  • Optional two-bedroom basement secondary suite*
* Conditional to appropriate zoning.

The Modena is available on a park amenity lot in Walden for $599,900, including GST. My research shows that this type of home is not available in the Walden resale market. Cardel has the required 34’-wide lots to accommodate this unique home.

We all know that demand trends are changing rapidly within the Calgary real estate market. Buyers want to invest in new homes that offer innovation and something unique to help protect their investment in the long term, which is apparent from the rising bungalow demand. Another housing form that offers something distinct and truly valuable is Cardel’s triple tandem garage model, the Tandem Bay.

I expect that the demand for an oversized garage will increase in the future given the benefits it offers and the fact that it’s something you can never add through renovation. Given today’s buyer’s market conditions and the incredible interest rates, if you were ever thinking of investing in a triple garage home, now might be the right time. Of course, the cost of a triple car garage model is higher, but Cardel’s 2,143 sq ft Tandem Bay is available on a park lot in Walden for $549,900, including house, lot, and GST.

I would encourage you to do some research on MLS to see if you find this type of home available for sale. I would anticipate that you wouldn’t find many because I’m confident those who purchased this type of home love it.

If you are looking to purchase a brand-new bungalow with a fully developed basement, double attached garage, deck, and 34’ wide park amenity lot, we have the perfect option. Cardel has just released a year-end promotion for the Hudson bungalow, making three opportunities available in Walden for $499,900, including lot and GST.

Brand new bungalow opportunities are limited within the city of Calgary, and demographic trends will continue to increase the demand for this type of home in the future. I encourage you to visit our Hudson bungalow model home located at 119 Walgrove Green SE to see what many realtor agents are saying is a very attractive purchasing opportunity.

Walden remains an ideal location for buyers looking to right-size within a community that is close to completion over the next few years. The community is also set to benefit from the neighbouring retail development, Township.
