December 2018 | issue 156

It’s the last magazine of the year, and things are winding down at the Source Media office for the Holidays and we’re chatting about our favourite Christmas movies as we decorate the office. Everyone’s got their favourite Christmas standards like “It’s A Wonderful Life”, “Miracle on 34th Street” or the stop-motion “Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer” but I got in an argument over my favourite, which is “Die Hard.” I’m told it’s not an actual Christmas movie, but hey Bruce Willis is my kind of Santa.

For gifts that keep on giving, the ultimate one would probably be a new home, and you can trust us to tell you where to find the best new homes and communities around. Just like this month, we have the wonderful community of Legacy as our cover feature, and they tell us about the overwhelming response they got from their “I Love Legacy” campaign, which just goes to show how much of a tight knit community they have become in such a short period of time.

We also feature two new show homes that adapt perfectly to the needs of today’s buyers. Daytona Homes — who make their triumphant return to Calgary after a long while — unleashed their full creative talent in their Cavalier Z show home in Livingston, a three-storey home built on-slab that maximizes living space in the popular zero-lot lines.

Then there’s Cardel Homes’ new models in Cornerbrook that were designed with the multi-generational buyer in mind. They’ve made it easier for households with extended families — or those who are open to the idea of renters — to build a home that would cater to their specific needs. Like putting in side entrances, at least five bedrooms in homes that have rear lane access or sit on walk-out lots.

The Rise by Bri-mor Developments is also featured, and this move-up community in the much-sought-after southwest address has grown by leaps and bounds and is now nearing build out. The developer thinks its offering the right product at the right time and place, as the amenity-rich location sure has attracted buyers.

This Christmas issue also has some tips on where to do your Boxing Day shopping and ways to bring some character to your Christmas trees. And I should probably wrap this up now and get back to wrapping gifts, and arguing again the merits of “Die Hard” as a Christmas movie. See you all in the New Year.
