As an adult, you might be interested in a neighbourhood that is close to a golf course, close to shopping or has nearby walking and biking trails.
BUT kids are different.
To them, their entire world exists on those few streets around their home. So if you have children, you will want to make sure that your new home is located in a neighbourhood that will have amenities to appeal to them. Examples include parks with modern playground equipment, daycare facilities, schools, rec centres and sports fields.
It is also important for them to have other kids in the neighbourhood that could potentially become their friends.
Several academic studies have shown that "kid-friendly" neighbourhood features can have a significant impact on a child's well being,psychological growth and academic performance.
So ....How do you find neighbourhoods that are great for your kids ? Call me today and I'll HELP !!
BUT what if you don't have kids ?
If you are planning a family, you will want a neighbourhood that is suitable for toddlers and strollers.
If you're not anticipating having children, or if your kids are already grown, then you'll need to carefully consider whether or not to live in a kid-friendly area. You might enjoy having an occasional street hockey game in front of your home. But, then again, you might not !
So, you need to think of the kids when shopping for a new home- even if you don't have any.
