Urban planning experts offer tips on how to shop for your next neighbourhood
Is it a neighbourhood with a lake so you don't need a vacation cottage?
Or an upgraded, older neighbourhood with lots of housing choices?
Perhaps a community with a main street so "you don't have to jump in your car to get a quart of milk?"
When urban commentators weigh in on what homebuyers, first-time or otherwise, should be looking for when they chose a place to live the emphasis is on community amenities – or as Greg Morrow puts it, looking "outside the four walls" of the home, to the DNA of the neighbourhood.
