Take a Walk on the Boardwalk (or Sidewalk)


Take a Walk on the Boardwalk (or Sidewalk)

If you've played the game Monopoly then you've probably picked up the
Chance card that reads, "Take a walk on the Boardwalk. If you pass Go..."
That's good advice when shopping for a new home. When you see a
property you like and you’re thinking of making an offer, spend some time
walking around the neighbourhood. This will give you a better sense of what
it's going to be like to live there.

After all, the last thing you want is to buy a dream home only to find out later
that there are issues with the neighbourhood that make living there
miserable.

If you have kids, see how far of a walk it is to local parks, playgrounds,
schools and community centres.

If you commute, you might also check out the route from the neighbourhood
to your place of work. Is there a left turn that is likely to get backed up in the
mornings?

Also check out how well the neighbours take care of their properties.
Homeowners tend to keep their homes looking good if they enjoy the
neighbourhood.

As you walk, listen. Are there noises from nearby high schools, industrial
areas, or highways that are going to be unpleasant for you? Find out if the
neighbourhood is near an airport flight path, or if there is a railway in the
area. (Your REALTOR® can find that out for you.)

If you get a chance, talk to some of the neighbours. Ask what they like most
about living in the area. You're likely to get some candid – and useful –
answers.

Finally, spend some time visualizing living in the area. Can you see yourself
enjoying what the neighbourhood has to offer?
If so, then buying a home in that area will likely be a good choice for you.
