The Basics of Organized Real Estate in Calgary
The Calgary MLS® Map
In the early days of Calgary, the MLS® Map was divided by the Bow River. Over time as the City grew the MLS® Map became zoned by the quarters of NW, NE, SW and SE. Today our MLS® Map has 8 MLS® Zones. North West, North, North East, West, South, South East, East and City Central. Within these 8 Zones are the individual communities of Calgary.
After home buyers decide on Price Range and Home Type the MLS® Search usually targets an area of the City and the MLS® Database is organized by these 8 zones and communities to make the search more efficient.
