Brad Churchwell's Home Trends October 2015

Fitting In Choosing a new home can be overwhelming if you’re not sure what neighbourhood you’ll feel at home in. Before looking at homes, look into areas of the town or city you are moving into to find the right fit. Research neighbourhoods on the Internet to find a couple that have the amenities you desire. Then go visit the neighbourhood and picture yourself living there. If you’re an outdoorsy person, are there walking paths? If you have school aged children, how close is the school? How does the public transit system connect with the area? If possible, talk to members of the community or local business owners to get a better feel for the area. The local police may be able to tell you about crime statistics and issues residents face. Once you’ve selected the ideal neighbourhood, start looking for a home to call your own.
