On How To Choose a Neighbourhood
With many homes on the market it can be difficult
to choose where to live unless you narrow your choices.
You can begin this process by first identifying
one or a few neighbourhoods that are right for you
· Consider Local Factors; and
· Use Neighbourhood Strategies
· Factors to Consider
When Evaluating a NeighbourhoodWhen evaluating a
neighbourhood, you should investigate local conditions.
Depending on your own particular needs and tastes,
some of the following factors may be more important
considerations than others:
· Style of homes
· Quality of schools
· Property values
· Crime rate
· Future construction
· Proximity to: Schools, Employment, Hospitals,
Shopping, Public transportation, Cultural Activities
(museums, concerts, theaters, etc.), Highways, Airports,
Beaches, Parks, Stadiums Whether you're moving across
the country or across town, you can count on me
to help you through every step of your move.
· Neighbourhood Search StrategiesIf you're a first
time-buyer with limited financial resources, it's
a wise purchasing strategy to buy a home that meets
your primary needs in the best neighbourhood that
fits within your price range.
You can maximize your home purchase location by
incorporating some of the following strategies into
your neighbourhood search:
· Look for communities that are likely to become
"hot neighbourhoods" in the coming years.
They can often be discovered on the periphery of
the most continuously desirable areas.
· Look for a home in a good neighbourhood that is
a bit farther out of the city. If commuting is a
concern, purchase a home that is close to public
transportation. · Look at the neighbourhood demand
by asking us whether multiple offers are being made,
whether the gap between the list price and sale
price is decreasing, and whether there is active
community involvement. You can also drive around
neighbourhoods and see how many "sold"
signs there are in a particular area. · Look into
purchasing a condominium or co-op, rather than a
house, in a desirable neighbourhood. This way you
still may be able to purchase in a prime area that
you otherwise could not afford.
