October is one of the most vibrant, breathtaking and festive months in Alberta. The colour of the leaves, the way the air feels and the sun shines in the afternoon, and the hustle and bustle of harvest, Thanksgiving and Halloween.
While you enjoy these last weeks before winter sets in, try to take in as many local festivities you can – we’ve listed a few below – but don’t forget to get your home prepared for the coming months. We’ve provided a checklist of the little things you can do now to save time and money later. There’s also a summary of how the local housing market has faired this past year – something to keep in mind as we close in on the end of 2015 and the surge of activity before the holidays.
