Due to age, some of the properties are on the market at a discount, which is perfect for infill and modern development. You may take advantage of the lower prices to invest in an inner-city property that sits a short 10 minutes from downtown Edmonton. This is the type of investment that is bound to make you a profit or make your commutes, amenity access, and education less stressful.
