When most people shop for a new home, they think about the kind of house they want: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, trees in the backyard.
But it also makes sense to shop for the right neighbourhood.
Think about it. In what type of area would you most like to live? What neighbourhood features do you want most? For example, you may want your next neighbourhood to have a good high school, a nearby recreation centre, and close access to public transit.
Make a list of what you want and then go “shopping” by visiting neighbourhoods that meet your criteria.
Your next home is more than just a property; it’s a dream home in a desirable location.
You find a beautiful home available on the market, but you’re not so sure about the location. Does it really matter all that much? Yes, it does. That’s why you’ll often hear REALTORS® say, “Location, location, location.”
The location of a home you’re considering buying will affect you in two ways.
First, it will affect the property’s future resale value, especially if the neighbourhood is becoming less desirable.
Second, it will affect your lifestyle. If the area doesn’t have the features you want — nearby schools and playgrounds, walking trails, proximity to activities that interest you, such as golf or theatre — you probably won’t enjoy living there.
A good REALTOR® will help you find the right home in the best location for you.
Whether you are looking to buy or rent, choosing the neighborhood that works for you would be one of the first things to do. There are quite a few factors to consider beside geographic location and we will look into 7 that in my opinion would influence the quality of your life the most
We were quite lucky with beautiful sunny weather yesterday, here in Toronto.
