Welcome to 2021 and our first Weekender of the new year! Who knows what this year has in store, but it can’t possibly be as bad as 2020, right? *knocks on wood*
Speaking of 2020, for this special edition of our newsletter I’ve thrown out the traditional format in favour of highlighting some of my favourite CREB®Now stories from last year – and there are a lot of them.
So, without further ado, here is my 100 per cent subjective list of the best CREB®Now stories from 2020.
Welcome to the “longreads” section! These in-depth features spanned a variety of topics, including the history of a fabled (but short-lived) Calgary waterpark, the ins and outs of “cash for homes” companies, and the growing appeal of a unique housing movement. What they all have in common is a compelling narrative that will hook you right from the start.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted all aspects of our lives. Thanks to intermittent stay-at-home orders and the need for physical distancing outside the household, many of us became better acquainted with our living spaces – both their charms and shortcomings. Unsurprisingly, this led to a wealth of great stories. Here are just a few of them.
Here’s the section for the miscellaneous stories I wanted to include that didn’t fit neatly into any of the other categories. Don’t let the unassuming title fool you, though – each story, whether it aims to inform or entertain, can stand on its own merits.
