How to Choose your Target Neighbourhood

Posted on: August 24th, 2016 by Chris Scott

One of the toughest choices facing Ottawa Buyers is exactly where to live.  The city extends (on both sides of the Greenbelt) to the east, west and south of the downtown core.  Figuring out what your target neighbourhood is can be a daunting task – especially if you are relocating to Ottawa.

Schools and distance to work will play a significant role in your decision.  Your wish list will also play a role – how much yard do you want, how much house do you want, how big is your budget, etc. The further out you go from the city’s core you go the further your money will go. That’s why suburban areas like Orleans, Stittsville, Barrhaven and Kanata are becoming so popular.

Your lifestyle is also an important factor – do you want to be close to restaurants, pubs, shopping, or have the ability to bike or walk to work.

For many people they are willing to pay more to have the Urban lifestyle. There are lots of factors to consider for sure.
