Location – from the City
The number one rule in real estate has often been, “location, location, location”. Cochrane’s less than 20 minutes from NW Calgary, via Highway 1A.
Location – from the Mountains
If you’re needing your, “mountain fix”, Canmore is less than an hour away, and your mountain escape begins! Whether you’re choosing to go the more scenic route through the Stoney Nakota First Nation, or via the Trans Canada, Cochrane has it all.
Did we mention the location? How about your closeness to nature, that is Mother Nature, the Great Outdoors, and the boundless adventures that await, literally just outside your doorstep. Cochrane’s got an amazing trail system, parks, and other great outdoor spaces. Whether you’re choosing to walk, run, drive or take COLT. Don’t forget to check out the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site, it’s an amazing “getaway” without leaving Town!
Looking for a slight drive, wanting to “get out of town?”. Head to Big Hill Springs Provincial Park, Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and if you really love Glenbow, consider supporting Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation. If you’re up for a bit more adventure, or a bit more out of the way trip, check out Bragg Creek Provincial Park, Kananaskis Country, and the most famous of them all, Banff National Park.
Quality of Life
The Town of Cochrane proudly calls itself, “How the West is Now”. They couldn’t be more right. Cochrane’s a thriving, bedroom community just outside of the City of Calgary and it really does offer it all. We’ve got the location, we’ve got nature at our doorsteps, and we’ve got the perfect place for you to call home, raise a family and even start a business. We’ve also seen significant growth in the past 20 years, where the population has more than tripled. Situated along the Bow Valley, if you’re looking for a community that has it all, and where you can afford to live, work and play, we’d better talk.
Cost of Living
Cochrane continues to see increases in the cost of living. That’s a reality borne by many communities. Low-interest rates, increases in immigration, a shortage of housing, and demand for housing have all contributed. According to the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB), the average cost of residential real estate in Cochrane is now $491,200.00.
