Did you know there's a limit to how much land you can include in a principal residence exemption?

This is definitely worth a look if you (or your parents) live on an acreage or old homestead. Click here to read the article.

  1. My knowledge in this topic is not really that broad but I do know some basic processes with regards to buying and selling. I've also read some helpful information related to your topic at Homes For Sale in NW Calgary. Maybe I'll do further studies and reviews with regards to principal residence exemption for future references as this really gained my interest.
