Searching For A Home
It's important to choose a combination of the two that you and your family can grow; enjoy living in, choosing a neighbourhood that is well suited for you and your family plus the future resale value. Evaluating a neighbourhood for our clients is our first step before viewing and comparing homes with our clients to help guide them, to one that is best suited to make an offer.

EVALUATING A NEIGHBOURHOOD
EVALUATING A NEIGHBOURHOOD
STEPS TO HELP NAVIGATE CHOOSING THE RIGHT CHOICE
We closely research neighbourhood aspects such as population density and the level of commercial development.
We take in account family type, average household income and homeowner education level and occupation.
Crime is an unfortunate reality we must all deal with. Probably no neighbourhood is totally immune from the risk of crime, but you can make an educated decision about where to live by researching these details.
Quality Of Schools
School quality is an important factor for resale value. We evaluate school performance as determined by average test scores, graduation rates, spending per student and the percentage of college-bound students.
Growing Business is an excellent sign of prosperity in the community this effects homes values in a positive way; business renewing leases and new business are opening. the opposite would have a negative effect on home values.
The lifestyle you lead will help determine the amenities that a neighbourhood/community should have to offer. Amenities should include; shopping transportation, parks and recreation, restaurants and nightlife, cultural institutions and nature resources as as parks or nature preserves.
If you commute to work Transit access will play a role in the deciding factor if this neighbourhood is best suited. how close is the nearest bus stop, what is the bus route schedule, how close is the nearest subway station do they offer parking and at what cost.
The turnover rate for homes being sold and re sold in the are is a good indicator if the neighbourhood is one to be in. Most desirable areas are homes that very relay come up on the market for sale.
