Housing & Real Estate

Hanna and the surrounding Special Areas offer a variety of housing options - from heritage to new homes, apartments to acreages, independent to assisted - they all offer country living with all the amenities.

The cost to purchase or build a new home in our community is low, compared to other parts of Alberta with the cost of an average-sized lot costing between $40,000 and $75,000. Be sure to consider the new development called Fielding Place.  It provides the opportunity to build a brand new executive or starter home in an established area.  No waiting for sidewalks, roads, schools or playgrounds to be built.  They are already in place!   Contact a local Realtor or the Town Office to begin your search.

Hanna has a range of rental options - from single homes to duplexes or apartments. The Town Office maintains a listing of landlords in Hanna who may have units available.

There are also several options for seniors' or subsidized living which can be viewed and the Hanna Herald is the local newspaper that also has information on properties for sale, lease or rent.
