Community is an essential part of family, of lifestyle, and of real estate.

Understanding local conditions in the area you are going to live or buy an investment property is important when it comes to owning real estate. The neighborhood you choose can have a dramatic impact on many aspects of your life as well as the future saleability of your property.

We continue to add new areas and neighborhoods. We apologize if we have not included your neighborhood. This website is a work in progress. If you have any information for any neighborhood or a neighborhood you would like to see included please contact realestatepros@eastlink.ca . We always enjoy feedback and constructive criticism. We also welcome useful information that we can provide to people who are thinking of buying in our area particularly those from other communities and cities.

Please feel free to browse through the areas and/or neighborhood information we have provided so far.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Neighborhood


1. Make a list of all of the amenities that are close by in the neighborhood you are considering as your new residence.  Keep in mind what distances and routes to each of these places are acceptable and what are not.

2. Determine what the best features of the neighborhoods are.  This is especially helpful if you are deciding between a few different neighborhoods.

  • Are there parks nearby?
  • Is it scenic and visually appealing?
  • Are there quiet areas, streets, cul de sac?
  • Are the people friendly in the neighborhood?

     
  • Is the neighborhood clean?  Yards, streets, parks?
  • Are there nice trees and foliage?
  • Do the lots have large or small yards?
  • Are there walkways and are they easily accessible?
  • Is it a safe neighborhood?
  • What are the market values of the homes in the area?
  • Are there many houses for sale?
  • How long ago was the community developed?
  • What is the average age of the people in the area?
  • Are there families with small children in the area?
  • What is the proximity to schools?
  • Are there community events or organizations?

3. Walk around in the neighborhood.  The best way to determine the cleanliness and friendliness of the neighborhood is to walk around in it and meet its residents.
