10 Things to Know About Your New Neighbourhood – # 5 & 6
February 9, 2010
Number 5 – Is there commercial activity nearby?
Shops and recreational facilities can help an area thrive economically and may add to a neighbourhood’s attractiveness to some buyers. On the other hand, consider if traffic levels or noise will be an issue.
Number 6 – Is there a homeowner’s association?
Condo or neighbourhood associations can bring people together, instill a sense of belonging, and advance the needs of the community. Many have their own volunteer-run websites, so search the Internet or inquire at city hall.
