First time buyer finds style, affordability at Viridian

  • Friday, August 5, 2016
When Carmin Moore measured the place she was renting against what she could afford to purchase at a new condo development in northwest Calgary, the decision was easy. She was ready to take her first step into home ownership.

Moore, who works as a co-ordinator for a non-profit agency in Calgary, bought a condo at Viridian in Sage Hill by Trico Communities.

“I had enough for a down payment and decided to go for it,” says Moore. She moved in to an 862-square-foot condo at the development last December.

She says the expenses are comparable.

“It’s basically the same price as when I was renting,” Moore says. “When I was renting (in the inner-city), it was an older condo and only had one bathroom. This is brand new and I got to choose everything and own it.”
