Choosing A Neighbourhood
Location, location, location! When you're trying to find a new place to live, choosing your neighbourhood is probably as big a decision as the type of property you're interested in buying. Ask yourself what are the most important features of a community to you. Afterall, you're not just buying a house - you're investing in the neighbourhood. It can be deciding between characteristics such as:
- quiet streets or a busy urban street
- walking distance to shops, restaurant nightlife
- trees and parks nearby
- older, established neighbourhood or brand new suburb
- commute time to work via car or public transit
- schools within walking distance or a short drive
Once you have a shortlist in mind, it's a great idea to drive around the area. You'll be able to see how properties in that neighbourhood are (or aren't) maintained, and you'll probably see some of the individuals living in the area. Other aspects to consider are property values in the area and if they're increasing or decreasing and how expensive property taxes are. Future developments are important to be aware of as well, because you may back onto a green space one day that's planned for something else entirely the next.
