The hot demand for condos in Calgary is driving the construction industry, and despite what may be happening with the economy, our city’s condo market continues to be a good investment. If you currently live in a condo or are looking to move to one, here’s some safety tips you should be aware of.

  • Unless you are moving into a brand new condo, you should get your locks changed upon moving in
  • All exterior doors should be equipped with a deadbolt (don’t rely on chain locks)
  • Ensure your exterior doors come with a peephole, if not, install one
  • Ensure all windows are equipped with locks
  • Never include your full name in buzzer directory or on mailboxes
  • Never buzz in people you do not know to your building
  • Keep your car locked in carport areas
  • Ensure there is proper lighting in carport areas
  • If you have a shared laundry room, avoid using it alone
  • Ensure you are well-informed of your condo’s security measures (surveillance, hired staff, etc) – communicate with your Condo Association on appropriate measures as well
