Not a lot of people give importance to the neighborhood or the community where they will be moving into but it actually plays a major role when buying a house.

• Check the crime rate of the community to see if the security level is good. You can also ask the agent on how many people live in the neighborhood.

• Look at the facilities of the neighborhood if there are any available. A park, a villa or a club will be better.

• Port Perry homes located in good neighborhoods are more expensive but the living conditions are better in general.

• If you are eyeing on a certain home, you can try to visit the neighborhood several times at different times of the day including nighttime. This is to check if you are comfortable with the environment around the house.
