Ryan and Amanda

"We've rented a lot of places. We've jumped from a lot of places. We recently just left a home in South Calgary that was really, really old and was falling apart and we could not find rent anywhere else," says Amanda.

"We didn't plan on buying a home. We didn't think it would be possible."

When Ryan and Amanda saw that units were available at Skymills through the Attainable Home Ownership Program, they jumped on it. They purchased an apartment condo at Skymills and recently moved in with their three children.

"The best thing about the program is the education and the down payment. The fact that it's only $2,000 [down]... that's what helped us get in right away."

Ryan added, "It's nice to have a place that you can call yours and you can stick to one payment."


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.
