Shopping for the Right Neighbourhood?

Blog by Lynn Chamberlain | December 5th, 2011

When most people shop for a new home, they think about the kind of house they want: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a tree in the backyard.

But it also makes sense to shop for the right neighborhood.

Think about it. In what type of area would you most like to live? What neighborhood features do you want most? For example, you may want your next neighborhood to have a good high school, a nearby recreation center, and close access to public transit.

Make a list of what you want and then go “shopping” by visiting neighborhoods that meet your criteria.

Your next home is more than just a property; it’s a dream home in a desirable location.
