Hello Westjetters, I'm not a member of the WJ team yet but am looking toward the future.

Any suggestions on nice areas where I could find a small acreage within commuting (driving) distance to YYC under the $400,000 mark or is this unrealistic?

Perhaps I should refine. By acreage I'm talking a few acres, not a quarter section or anything.

I'm sure there are a few WJ pilots that have a place in the country. Just looking for ideas on nice areas within commuting distance.

There were 4 Acres 15 minutes north of Airdrie with a house built in '91 on it for $579,900 listed a couple months ago.....and that was super cheap. There are lots only, with no services, 10 minutes to the east of Airdrie for $320,000, these are a couple acres in size.

Basically, the answer is No.

Try Hamilton. Quite a few properties in that price range.

Thunder Bay. The city's not great, but you can't find a more scenic area West of BC.

25 acres, $20k a few years ago. A couple properties over the guy wants $40k for 10 acres, but they have a good view of the hills.

There's some lakefront 30 min from the city with nice houses in the $300k range. Maybe 5 acre properties, but gorgeous views.

Define commutting distance, 30 minutes or hours? People drive in from Pincher Creek, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Golden etc.

Hawaii is West of BC.

Depending on how far a drive away from YYC you want to be will tell the tale. 400k don't buy you much in YYC anymore... 280k for a new townhouse; take it from there.
Best of luck.

you MIGHT get a couple acres for that price... minus the house within the vicinity of YYC.

Wow, Golden eh? How do the boys find that commute? Beautiful little town.

I was thinking no more than 150 KM's. Anyone got a spread in the Sundre/Caroline area? How's that for a commute with the schedule?

How much travel does 131000.00 buy you?

You could probably find something up aroudn the Olds/Didsbury area. I know there are several pilots both AC and WestJet up here. The commute isn't bad, 50 minutes door to door for me to the airport.

This is a bit more money but a great big piece of land http://reddeer.kijiji.ca/c-real-estate- ... Z317856659
