Okotoks

What makes Okotoks special?  It is a place that you can really put your roots down.  As soon as you come over the 2a overpass and see the mountains, you will know you are home! Here you have everything you need at your finger tips but you are only a short 15 minute town to Calgary if you need that “big city” fix.

With an average age of 32, this dynamic town caters to the young families by offering fabulous schools, sports and community programs and plenty of amenities. With just over 25000, it is big enough to have everything you need but still feels intimate where you can head down to Costco and you are guaranteed to see someone you know.

Although Okotoks has grown rapidly over the last few years, it still protects and is very proud of its heritage and you can see this with the shops, restaurants and homes in the core of the town.  It has the perfect balance of vibrant, trendy and new while still maintaining its roots and preserving the character of Okotoks.

Like Calgary, the weather is relatively predictable and there are four distinct seasons.  Winter is the longest season but the average temperature is reasonable (- degrees) and the Chinooks that blow in intermittently help break it up nicely! Summer’s average temperature hovers around 22 degrees.  With the Sheep River running through Okotoks, it is not uncommon to see kids grabbing their tubes and spending the afternoon floating down the river with family and friends.

Statistics show that Okotoks is younger, more educated and prosperous than provincial and national averages.  With well over half of the residents commuting to Calgary for work, it has been defined as a place to escape the big city rat race. With only 18 km to the city outskirts and a 40 minute drive to downtown it’s easy to justify making the move out here. Besides, the commuter bus has direct routes downtown so if you aren’t interested in dealing with the parking…just hop on, throw on your earphones and relax as you are chauffeured to work!

The Real Estate market has remained strong in Okotoks even during the economic crisis. There is everything from condos to Estate homes backing onto the man-made lake thus accommodating nearly everyone’s needs.  Condos average around the $200,000 – $250,000 range for a nice two bedroom and an average single detached would run you around $425,000. There is a great mix of brand new and old with character in this great little town.  With two of our DONERIGHT Realty agents living here, we can happily take you around and help you get to know this great community!

Come visit our office or give us a shout if this is even a consideration.  I guarantee this town will not disappoint!
