Does the Area Have What You Want?

Imagine going to a restaurant in Kelowna with your family for dinner. You're
planning on ordering a nice pasta and salad. Your heart is set on it.
But, after you go to the trouble of driving there and getting a table,
you discover that pasta is not on the menu.
That’s disappointing!
Of course, it’s only a meal. You can go somewhere else next time.
But, what if the same scenario played out once you had moved into a
new neighbourhood in the Okanagan? Imagine you were counting on public transit
being in easy walking distance, but discovered the nearest stop is
four blocks away. Argh!
That's why it's important to ensure a neighbourhood has the
characteristics you want — before you make an offer on a home you like.
Think about what you want most in a neighbourhood. Consider work,
commuting, schools, playgrounds, noise level, walking and cycling,
hobbies, shopping, entertainment, etc.
If there is a neighbourhood feature that is very important to you,
check it out for yourself. For example, if easy access to a main
highway is desirable for commuting, take the route for a test drive.
You can get a lot of information on a neighbourhood through the
listed property's description and MLS listing.
