Despite being centrally located and enjoying close access to many amenities, Thickwood’s homes for sale are situated on quiet streets and provide the perfect respite from the city’s hustle and bustle. Although Fort McMurray’s real estate is famously expensive, the homes for sale in Thickwood have remained relatively affordable for most budgets.

At the low end of Thickwood’s real estate market young families will find their perfect first step on the property ladder. These homes for sale often would require a mortgage of less than $1,400 per month. Often a mix of both half-duplex and single-family detached homes, some features that can be found in affordable Fort Mac homes include generously-sized living rooms, three-piece master bathrooms and plenty of kitchen space. Although many of these homes are perfectly adequate to live in now, many home owners wish to upgrade the homes slowly throughout the years.

  • Westwood Community High School in Tundra North
  • Westview School in Tundra South
  • Father Patrick Mercredi Community School in Cedarwoods
  • Fort McMurray Christian School in Woodland
  • Saint Paul’s Elementary School in Ross Haven
