The housing industry is HOT! HOT! HOT! Ever wonder when
this craziness is going to stop? Where are we going to end up?
Well… let me share my thoughts. Economies worldwide have gone through

continues at this pace and prices do not level out, Medicine Hat is going

Amron can offer first time homebuyers a lot of information. I hate to
admit it, but we are getting to be one of the “older” construction
companies in Medicine Hat. Over time, we’ve gained a lot of experience
and our sales staff have aligned Amron with some great lending institutions
that have gone the “extra mile” to get our customers into
their own home. Call us! Maybe we can help.
