Canada Post New Home Mailboxes

Canada Post, come January 2013 will be charging new home developers $200 per address to install community mailboxes in new developments. This new fee will more than likely be handed down to new home owners. Community mailboxes or Superboxes were first introduced in the 1980s, and are seen everywhere in new Calgary communities like Auburn Bay, Cranston, Aspen Woods and West Springs. If you live in a condo or apartment you won’t be affected by the new fees. It only affects single family homes in new developments.

If you are a potential home owner thinking of buying a new home in Calgary you may need to add this mailbox fee to your purchase price. There can be other fees and costs associated with buying a new home. Working with a Realtor® to buy your new home may save you money. You may get a better price if your Realtor® negotiates directly with the builder, and a Realtor® can help protect your interests when it comes to the builder contract. Know what your new home costs are.
