Is a new neighbourhood right for you?

By Heather Mellican

Moving to a new neighbourhood can be daunting and many buyers question what that new area has to offer. Getting to know your potential new neighbourhood is a great way to see if it is right for you.

Jump online: Get all the information you need at your fingertips if you can’t have a look around yourself. Real estate websites will give you a great rundown of each suburb or try typing the name of the area you are looking at into social media. Searching a suburb on social media sights is a great way to see what popular attractions or cafes there are in the area.

Grab your kids: Take a trip to a local park or play centre and let your kids get familiar with the environment too. It is also a great way to interact with other people who live in the area.

Staycation: Everyone loves a holiday, why not have a short stay in the area you are looking at? Pick a hotel in the area you are looking to buy in and have your own trial run.

Go to some auctions: Seeing who is buying and what the market is like in that area will give you a heads up on how that neighbourhood is changing. Getting in touch with your council will also help indicate if there are any proposed developments in the area.
