Beaumont is a beautiful, yet quaint town located just outside of Edmonton. The area has just the right amount of proximity to neighbouring communities, including Leduc, and even the International Airport, without getting too big itself – although that could change. Beaumont real estate is getting more desirable.
In just three short years (2011-2014) the town saw an increase in population of over 2000 residents, and it’s attracting the attention of some businesses too. Beaumont real estate is relatively comparative with the area, but its picturesque community and involved residents makes it a much more closely knit place to call home. Perhaps one challenge the town has seen has been having to play catch-up to the very quick population jump. As any town or city grows, both geographically and in volume, it needs to match the increase in demand for things like programs, educational institutions, transit expansion, sewer maintenance – pretty much everything you could imagine. It can be difficult to stay in synch with supply and demand, when demand happens in a heartbeat.
There is no doubt, however, that despite having to play catch up, the area will continue to grow. As business see the value of getting established in an area on the brink of population explosion and general expansion, more commercial business will be searching for suitable Beaumont real estate. It’s certainly a situation where you could presume that whatever you think Beaumont needs, or doesn’t have now, it probably will sometime in the next five years or so.
It’s no doubt that the town is up and coming, with an average age of only 31! The only problem overshadowing Beaumont’s real estate growth at the moment, is the general slump the whole province is experiencing due to oil pricing.
