Choosing a neighbourhood can be one of the most emotional parts of buying a new home. Whether you are buying your first home, moving into a larger home, or downsizing, it’s likely that you’ll be moving to a new neighbourhood in the process. Getting to know a new neighbourhood takes time, but asking the right questions up front will help you get a feel for whether it’s the right fit for you and your family.
Some of the questions you might have include:
Are the other homes on the block well maintained?
How much traffic does the street get?
Is there enough street parking for your family and visitors?
Is it conveniently located near places of interest to you: schools, shopping centres, restaurants, parks, place of worship, and public transportation?
What developments nearby may change home values, traffic patterns, or bylaws?
What is the proximity to hospitals, medical centres, or health services?
It’s always a great idea to drive around the neighbourhoods you are considering, before buying. If you have questions about the local neighbourhoods, let me know. As a lifelong resident of Vaughan, this is my home too. I’d love to show you around. Call me and let’s get started.
