Looking for the best neighborhoods in Vancouver? Do you want to live in an area with a low crime rate, is kept clean and where neighbors watch out for one another? The best way to get the lowdown on each and every neighborhood in Vancouver is to talk to a real estate agent. He knows the ins and outs of all the parts of town and can give recommendations based on feedback from clients.
What is a good neighborhood?
A good neighborhood is one that makes you feel relatively safe to live there, has a lot of the amenities you'd like to have near you and has a generally uplifting community spirit.
You can find out about the crime rate in the neighborhoods in Vancouver from your real estate agent. Statistics are kept on every area in town. Don't assume that an area has less crime in it based on appearance only. There may be factors that you aren't aware of that are making the crime statistics rise in a certain neighborhood.
Amenities are also a major contributing factor to what you would consider to be a good neighborhood in Vancouver. Would you like to have grocery store nearby? Do you want to be close to your favorite gym? Do you have a church that you frequent or a special school that you want to send your children to? Amenities play a big role in determining the right neighborhood for you.
What is the community spirit like? Even if you are not interested in socializing, you will feel the general tone of the whole area when you live there. For example, if you are near a convenience store, the mood and tone of the store will be influenced by the tone of the neighborhood.
