Renting an apartment in Edmonton

Bearing the capital offices of Alberta province, Edmonton city bears the nation’s oil capital and the home to the largest mall in North America. Friendliness of the residents is a virtue praised by many people who move in to the town. A rapid rise in population is however pulling the city back as facilities may not fully cater for the rapidly growing population.

Edmonton is however endowed with proper road networks and rail systems which attract residents to the city as mobility is eased with bus and rail terminals located in the major points of the city. Mobility convenience is therefore assured with high convenience levels. ApartmentLove is a great relief to anyone seeking a place stay.

Migrant workers make a better part of the population with the oil industry as well as the gas industry attracting laborers who consequently find their residence in city. Rental apartments in Edmonton are however much cheaper when compared to Calgary which the migrant workers are perceived to be the reason for the low cost as the investors in the city as they prefer settlements that are affordable to the workers.

The city however suffers a measurable level of crime with some corners of the city usually associated with higher cases, which may dictate the location of residential facilities as clients will obviously opt for the side of town which has minimal criminal cases reported. Drug abuse is the factor that is associated and considered as the root cause for the repugnant vice especially in the North eastern neighborhoods.

Occasional tornadoes that have come as a result of heat levels during the summer combined with precipitation have also shunned a considerable number of potential residents. The weather here is not so friendly to the residents as compared to that of Calgary which makes many people prefer residing in a different district.

Residents living in the city also tend to enjoy the lowest and cheapest prices of gasoline and engine fuel compared to any district in Canada. With a well-connected road transport system, residents here prefer using personal cars as their primary mode of transport.

Despite the levels of crimes that have been associated with Edmonton city as well as the harsh extreme weather fluctuations, the city has the advantage the best of Canada’s job markets arising from the strong economy as well as client friendly housing conditions when compared to Calgary and the rest of the bigger Cities. With proper handling of the drug abuse cases, crime rates would decrease resulting in a friendlier neighborhood that would attract more residents.
