Calgary homeowners capitalizing on market by going bigger

CODY STUART managing editor When Stephanie and Robert Morgan decided to make a step up from their Evanston home, their biggest concern was space for them and their growing family. After looking at several ?lateral? options that would have seen them gain little in the way of square footage, the Morgans decided to make the jump to something significantly bigger ?We really wanted a place that would feel like a home for each member of our family ? somewhere where we could each have our own space but also enjoy the common areas without tripping over each other,? said Elizabeth, who, along with husband Robert, shares the home with their four-year old daughter. ?Our old house was very narrow and long and there was always this feeling that it was smaller than it actually was.? Along with something bigger than their existing 1,500 square feet, the Morgans? list of must-haves included an attached garage, three bedrooms, upstairs laundry and a larger kitchen. After casually searching the market for three years to no avail, the family eventually decided on a 2,200-square-foot home located just two blocks away. According to Elizabeth, finding the right home was a combination of patience and diligence. MOVE-UP A3
