Always remember the golden rule of real estate. You’re not just buying a home. You are also buying into and becoming a part of a neighbourhood. Each neighbourhood is different and there is no such thing as the perfect neighbourhood because not all areas are going to be truly a perfect fit for everyone and their unique needs. We now have so many cookie-cutter neighbourhoods where the components are watered down. Sometimes the simple ideas that make a neighbourhood great disappear. As you evaluate the best aspects of a prospective neighbourhood, you’ll want to match them to your needs at this point in your life.
1. PRIDE IN OWNERSHIP
All great neighbourhoods have this in common. Pride in ownership is obvious when the residents maintain their homes and care about their neighbourhood. Neighbours participate to connect and create local groups that bring the residents together for the betterment of the area.
2. LIFESTYLE MATCH
A truly great neighbourhood is one in sync with your current lifestyle. Homebuyers tend to gravitate to areas with similar demographics.
Living on the coast is a special place to live. If you love the beach access to the beach is so important.
3. A PASSIONATE DEVELOPER
Great neighbourhoods are designed with passion. They are created by a team of people wanting to create a very special place to live for the residents for many years to come. Look at the places in the world where you feel connected and at home. You will usually find a lot of thought has gone into making those places special. It takes time and hard work. Jindee is one of those places.
4. LOW CRIME RATE
Low crime rates give a neighbourhood a sense of ease and calm. As safety and security are everyone’s concern, crime is a quick way to tell if a neighbourhood is improving or not. You can usually spot a transitional and improving neighbourhood by the improvement or decline in its crime rates.
5. GREAT SCHOOLS NEARBY
For families with children, great schools top their list of what makes a great neighbourhood. Not only are great schools important for families with children, they also make the surrounding neighbourhoods more valuable and more sought after, keeping property values strong.
Being close to many schools, Jindee families are spoilt for choice.
6. OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ABOUND
Being close to the outdoor adventures you love can sweeten the appeal of your neighbourhood. Being super close to places to jog, swim, or pedal can keep you riding high about your home. Or it may be just being able to walk a different path everyday. There is nothing better than starting you day with a refreshing dip in the ocean. It’s a special connection.
7. STEPPING BACK IN TIME
One thing people always look for in a neighbourhood are tree-lined streets; the feel of an older, established neighbourhood is a great asset. People love the charm of older, established neighbourhoods. Jindee has taken the best of those ideas and recreated them in a modern way.
8. ACCESS TO MEDICAL CARE
This is important for all residents, but especially for seniors and retirees looking to find that perfect place to retire and for families with young children. Being close enough to get to a medical centres is key for many people in various stages of their lives.
9. FAMILY FRIENDLY
Lots of other families in the neighbourhood are a real draw for buyers with children. There are more opportunities for children to play, socialise and make lifelong friends. Many homes in Jindee will have streets with no cars entering the front of the homes. Not only is this safer for residents and their families it give the streets a special feeling of ‘people friendly’ not all about the car.
10. CLOSE TO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Easy access to public transportation is a fantastic plus for a neighbourhood and an amenity for almost any lifestyle. From a commuting millennial to a retiree who wants to keep the car at home, public transit is a solid upgrade to any neighbourhood. How special is it having a train station within walking distance.
11. NEARBY SHOPPING AND RESTAURANTS
If you want to be part of the hustle and bustle (and don’t want to cook dinner every night), having great restaurants, shopping, and markets in proximity is a must. The Jindee coastal village will be a focus for everyone on the coast.
Being able to leave the car keys at home and hit the paths to walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants, parks and all the other amenities your neighbourhood has to offer can alleviate a lot of road rage and make you fall even deeper in love with your neighbourhood.
