Choose the Right Neighbourhood

The Right Neighbourhood

Finding a home that suits you is only part of the journey... Another big part? Choosing the right neighbourhood.

The number of bedrooms, and square footage, is certainly important when buying a home - but the community is just as vital.

After all, it’s where you’ll likely exercise and socialize, where your kids will grow up and go to school, and ultimately, where you’ll put down roots and build a life.

Are you ready to look for a new home? Here’s how you can find the right neighbourhood:

Know your needs

If walkability is high on your list, make sure the neighbourhood offers plenty of paths to explore. Is your commute to work a big factor? How long will it be? How much time will it take?

Do some research

Take some time to look into the community. Check out school district ratings and look at nearby listings to see home values. Reach out to learn what else the community offers.

Check out online groups

Pull up any neighbourhood groups you can find on social media. Does the online community seem friendly? You can also search for a neighbourhood newsletter or local events.

Take a self-guided tour

Drive around the neighbourhood at different times of day to get a feel for its character. Can you see yourself living there? If you’re buying from out of town, you can hop on Google Maps and take a virtual walk.

And if you’re ready to take an online tour or see a home in person, get in touch today. Together we’ll find the right home and neighbourhood for you.
