COVID-19 has caused us all to wonder about life’s ‘what ifs?’
What if you could reduce your living expenses, what if you could experience small town living without sacrificing big-city amenities, what if you could make life less complicated?
Many experts are predicting that housing affordability is going to be a huge factor post-COVID however, real estate prices are not responding as quickly. Many Canadians are currently looking to move into more affordable living situations, including less expensive housing and surrounding areas to save money.
If you’re looking to move outside of Edmonton without sacrificing its conveniences, consider moving to Morinville.
Slow down in a small town
If there’s one thing this global pandemic has taught us, it’s the value of slowing down. What better way to enjoy a slower pace of life than moving to a smaller town?
When you’re exploring towns near Edmonton, make sure you consider the beautiful town of Morinville!
Located in the heart of Sturgeon County, the Town of Morinville, Alberta is a vibrant and rapidly growing community with a current population of approximately 10,000 people.
Known for its iconic St. Jean Baptiste Church downtown, the town has an appealing ambiance. The Community has managed to preserve all of the charm of a small-town while providing first class facilities, amenities and festivals for its residents.
The economic development team has worked hard to attract great local businesses and the downtown is thriving.
The pace is just a bit slower – it’s more relaxed here. Take a leisurely stroll down main street and visit the unique boutiques. It’s okay to be unhurried.
Affordable living awaits just moments from Edmonton.
Life in the Meadows is about making life simpler, without sacrificing luxury. Our exclusive home builder is offering modern modular bungalows on large, landscaped lots from the $160,000’s. Our unique land-lease concept gives our home buyers an opportunity to get into a house they might not otherwise be able to afford, and empty-nesters a chance to free up some equity in their existing home.
“We moved to the Meadows of Morinville in April of 2017 and we love it. You have the choice of numerous floor plans and sizes to choose from as well as lot size. It was, and still is, a pleasure to deal with all the staff at the Jandel office as well as those in the Meadows office. It’s nice to see the community continue to grow!!” – Becky Gerrie
A true sense of community
We don’t know all 10,000 people that live and work in Morinville, but we know all our neighbours and the family that owns the Shell station, and the owners of the local grocery stores.
We take pride in this community and our work together keeping it a great place to live. You’ll find yourself part of an active community that likes to participate in things like the local Rendez-Vous Centre for Seniors, the Morinville Marvelous Moms and the curling club.
Some of our favourite additional bonuses to small town living include less traffic and pollution. We still have traffic in Morinville, of course, but traffic is so much lighter than the city that we only have one set of stop lights. Even better if you don’t like cars, because you can literally walk from one end of town to the next. Additionally, small towns often have less violent crime. It’s safer to walk at night, for kids to play outside and to leave your bike outside the coffee shop. You have a greater sense of security here.
