Airdrie Alberta is a small town of over 70,000 people just minutes north of the City of Calgary. Real Estate in Airdrie attracts a lot of first time home buyers looking for affordability and proximity to Calgary. Almost 80% of the population of Airdrie is under the age of 50. First Time Home Buyers should avoid homes close to the railroad tracks, under the flight paths and too close to busy streets. Buy a home that will be easier to sell down the road. Home condition you can fix, the location you can't.
