I was reliably informed that rent in Calgary normally counts from the first day of the calendar month. You appear behind schedule based on the date you quoted here. If u have someone to stay with then it may not really matter or if you are buoyant enough to stay in an hotel

Cheers

it does start on the first of each month but you can negotiate if the place is vacant the landlord preffers tp prorate before not making any money

for renting places I recommend powersproperties com they specialize in new comers and they may know the name of the best school there is also the page http://alberta.compareschoolrankings.org/elementary/SchoolsByArea.aspx

now about the best place to live in calgary is false that the NW and SW are the best
calgary is pretty much the same the only kind of creapply place is forest lawn in the se but some people love living there

I live in the SE in a private Lake community and if u ask me its the best place to live

the Ideal is to live close to work if possible to avoid too much commute time
calgary transit works great its under a schedule you can see it here http://www.calgarytransit.com/index.html
it covers all the city

i dont know if they do bookings online dont really think so give them a call or drop them a email
I wouldn't rent a house online i bet you will like to see it before

Hi,
I didn't receive PM (have u landed ). Check my signature in my thread I posted few numbers of landlord.
As busy with work and family I didn't get chance to come forum quite often with exception of one thread which link is in my signature which I try to check and reply couple of time in day using my iPhone .

Hello Guys

I am landing in Calgary in Jun 2013, with two kids (10 & 6) and wife. I am looking for your advice for any suitable options for the rent before I land. I need some good area advice, and family friendly area. I am considering two bedroom town house. Please share your experience and give your advice. My intended budget is ~$ 1,000+- 100.

Calgary rental market is getting tight again so IMHO your figures are on the low side...you need to budget for around 1300+ and then include deposit and utilities on top of this.
