Luckily, MoneySense, in partnership with Zoocasa, has just released a list of the very best neighbourhoods in Calgary to buy real estate – and as it turns out, the NW is the place to be.

Ranked based on data collected at the end of March, as well as a number of interviews conducted over the winter months, Zoocasa determined that the community of Patterson is the top dog for 2023.

With a benchmark price of $513,352, the area has gotten a lot of attention in the previous years and is considered to be extremely family-friendly and is considered fairly accessible by most.

In second they found that Coach Hill would also be beneficial to buyers, followed by Scenic Acres, Tuscany and Cougar Ridge.

Want to see where your community ranked? Below is their list of the 15 best neighbourhoods to buy a house in Calgary.
