With housing prices setting new records in Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia, an innovative western housing builder is offering battle-weary home buyers some much needed relief in Edmonton, Alberta.
Homes by Avi, a home building company founded by Avi Amir and headquartered in Calgary, is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year by offering an outstanding selection of Move-in ready homes in Edmonton and surrounding areas. This marks a rare opportunity for prospective homeowners and real estate agents to take advantage of one of the best offers to be found anywhere in Canada.
“We first entered the housing market in 1978. Twenty years later, we expanded to the city of Edmonton,” said Homes by Avi Chairman and Founder, Avi Amir.
“We have gone through the severe changes in the Alberta housing market, but one thing that will never change, is the respectful way in which we treat our customers, our employees and our trades and suppliers.”
The company has demonstrated an outstanding track record of designing stylish and energy-efficient homes whose elevations and interior architecture reflects Avi's deeply felt philosophy of bringing families together.
"This past year we were nominated for seven Canadian Home Builders’ Association National Awards, including Best Production Kitchen and Best Bathroom. Most recently the company won Builder of Choice and Best Customer Experience awards in Edmonton. Our functional floor plans are designed for growing families, new buyers, downsizers, and everyone in between,” says Doug Beach, Senior VP of Housing at Homes by Avi.
He summarizes the company's approach to creating friendly home spaces for families as follows: "Simply put – it’s the best value and versatility a customer could ask for – that’s what we call 'Better Value by Design.'"
Under construction, move-in ready and quick possession homes
Offering some of the best home value available in Canada, in a vibrant housing market with a growing population, it’s not difficult to see why Homes by Avi is gaining a following in Ontario. Furthermore, for their 45th year that value is being celebrated in a very big way.
For clients interested in a newly built home, Homes by Avi is matching the cost of a purchaser’s selection of home model options or finishings on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a maximum of $45,000.
“For example, if one selects $20,000 in options, they will receive an additional $20,000 to invest in their home,” says Stephanie Collins, Director of Marketing.
For those home buyer’s better suited to a quick possession or move-in ready home Homes by Avi has introduced the “Avi ALL-IN Collection”.
Homes by Avi’s collection of move-in ready homes have nothing left to do but for customers to move in. These homes are offered for sale with full-landscaping front and rear, complete appliance package including washer & dryer, 2” blinds throughout main & upper floors, and a complimentary move-in concierge service (curated specifically for the remote buyer) – an uncommon and welcomed value.
The readiness of Homes by Avi’s quick possession homes makes them particularly suitable for investors as well as home buyers.
A wide range of home buyer incentives
To help customers complete their home purchase as smoothly and stress-free as possible, Homes by Avi is also offering a wide range of purchasing incentives. These include:
- Referral Program: Refer a purchaser, receive $1000.
- Avi After Care: Service well beyond a typical home warranty.

Homes by Avi has acquired a sterling reputation within the Alberta housing industry by building attractive properties in prime locations that generally are between 5- and 10-minutes driving distance to the centre of Edmonton.
Featured Communities Include:
- Maple Crest, best known for its accessibility to established schools K-12.
- Uplands at Riverview, nestled in nature with easy connectivity to Big Island Provincial Park

Many of the community development projects undertaken by Homes by Avi consist of duplexes where two homes are attached, ideal for couples and their relatives to live next door to each other. Attached homes allow for grandparents to live independently but remain in touch with their children and grandchildren.
Homes by Avi welcomes real estate agents
In addition to treating each customer as a family member with the kind of care, consideration, and advice that breaks down the barriers between company and customer, Homes by Avi goes one step further placing high value on the expertise and support of Real Estate Agents.
“The value of relationships with Real Estate Agents is no way lost on us. We recognize we are both contributors to a common goal: helping people find a home,” shares Micah Dueck, Sales Manager. “We’ve invested a lot in our systems and approach to ensure remote agents are supported by receiving scheduled updates, a portal for viewing construction progress, remote selections appointments, and host of complementing services to ensure everyone enjoys confidence well beyond the move-in date.“
