Your Next Move - Neighbourhood


One of the most important aspects of purchasing a home is the neighbourhood. After all, you're not just selecting a new home, you're deciding on the community where you will build a life!

Consider these factors in choosing a neighbourhood:

  1. Nearby Amenities – Are you looking for a home near a good church, top schools or convenient stores? Learn what amenities you'll be near and consider how it will affect commute times, running errands or just going out for fun.
  2. Observe the Neighbours – Are there many children in the neighbourhood? Are the streets lined with cars? How well are the neighbours' yards maintained? Details like these can reveal a lot about the neighbourhood's personality.
  3. Consider Your Safety – Feeling safe in your neighbourhood goes beyond installing a security system. Do neighbours walk their dogs or go for morning jogs? Are the streets noisy when you drive down them at night? What are the crime statistics?

When you're ready for your next move, call us to discuss your needs, and we can help you pinpoint the neighbourhood that will fit you and your lifestyle best.
