Kyle and Kayla Johnson were both born and raised in Calgary. They recently got married and had a three-year plan to save a down payment for a home. AHCC helped the newlyweds reach their goal much sooner.
“Kyle and I were hoping to buy a house within three years, but now we are able to have a place way sooner than expected,” says Kayla. “It is so nice to know that we get to have our own home now and we don't have to pay rent for another three years.”
“One of the hardest things to do when you rent a place is save money. It’s ridiculous how high rent can be. We will actually be paying less for our mortgage than our rent.”
The couple have been living in a condo in Beacon Hill and decided to buy a brand new two-bedroom townhouse with an attached garage at ARRIVE at Redstone, which is also in north Calgary. It’s an award winning community with quick, easy access to schools, transit, recreation, major traffic routes and shopping.
The development offers an impressive list of new home features. The interiors feature professional designer selected materials and finishings, including laminate hardwood flooring throughout the main level, vaulted ceiling features, breakfast bars in all kitchens, front-load washer/dryers, and a blind package.

WE MAKE HOME OWNERSHIP HAPPEN
Attainable Homes Calgary Corporation (AHCC) is a nonprofit social enterprise and wholly owned subsidiary of The City of Calgary that delivers well-appointed, entry-level homes for Calgarians who have been caught in the city’s growing housing affordability gap.
Through our Attainable Home Ownership Program, we connect builders, developers, lenders, lawyers and others to bring down the upfront costs of ownership so qualifying Calgarians can buy their very own home with a $2,000 down payment. Furthermore, when you decide to buy an attainable home, you're also choosing to pay it forward to help another family in the future. When you eventually decide to refinance or sell your home on the market, a share of the appreciation goes back into the program to fund more developments that will help even more people get a foot on the property ladder.
Do you aspire to own a home of your own? Contact us today and let us show you just how attainable this milestone can be.
