It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
The golden rule for real estate is “location, location, location” that means you need to fall in love with the neighbourhood. Afterall, the community you live in will have an impact on your well being. If you are looking for a new place, consider these factors when evaluating a neighbourhood.
Diversity and Lifestyle Match
A great neighbourhood will have different kinds of people of all ages, incomes and ethnicities to give it some cultural flavour. Diversity can lead to opportunities that offer new perspectives. Also look for neighbourhoods that share your lifestyle, whether you are a young single professional or a small family with children.
Pride in Ownership
Do the occupants in your potential neighbourhood care about the betterment of the area? Pride in ownership encourages neighbours to connect with each other.
Low Crime Rate and Walkabillity
Feeling comfortable walking around in your neighbourhood to enjoy the sights without having to look over your shoulder is an important issue to consider. Crime rates in a neighbourhood can give you an idea on the area’s progress and it’s potential value.
Great Schools, Amenities, Medical Care, Shops and Restaurants
There is always a price to pay for convenience, however having great schools and shops around your neighbourhood will help keep the community connected.
Close to Public Transportation
Easy access to public transportation will only make your life easier if you don’t have a car. Great neighbourhoods will have an efficient network of transportation options.
