There's a reason Okotoks real estate is in such high demand — having great communities, employing exceptional home builders and being on the cusp of the Foothills means you're living in a prairie paradise. This paradise even has a full scoop of amenities, with Calgary's big city perks just a short drive north. The perfect medium-sized community, Okotoks is ideal for those who want to move from their rural properties to a larger community, or for those moving from a large centre who are looking to slow the pace of their life down a little bit. So, if you've been bitten by the bug, here's what we think you need to know about Okotoks real estate in October of 2018!
