More than just a move

How can you choose the right community?

January area market stats are out! Many of my clients, whether first-time buyers upsizing from the city to the suburbs or seniors, resizing from the suburbs to a different suburb, obviously want to know about the neighborhood they are considering living in! How can you choose the right community?  When choosing a community to live in seeing a new neighborhood through a tourist’s eyes is ideal for getting a lay of the land! When I travel, I always do research prior to visiting the city. As well as asking friends and family, I read the local newspaper and online blogs, and enjoy reviews and articles of restaurants, hotels, galleries as well as what new neighborhoods and new shops are worth a visit. When I’m there, I always walk the neighborhoods as I'm guaranteed to stumble upon a little gem of a local designer boutique, restaurant, or vintage shop! When moving I recommend the same, take time to get to know the neighborhood as if you were a tourist. Walk it, run it, bike it, shop it, enjoy it! For a full list of what to look for including transit, schools, and other must-knows, when choosing a community,  just ask! Which area are you interested in? Curious about a neighborhood, call me! After all, it is more than just a move and I'm here to help every step of the way!
