How to Find the Perfect Neighbourhood

What truly distinguishes a house from a home is about more than just the property itself, but the community and environment that surround it.

Looking to find your perfect neighbourhood? Follow these steps to help you find the right fit.

  • Define your perfect neighbourhood criteria in a list

  • Do research to find areas that fit your criteria (there’s an app)

  • Get out and explore

  • Call in the pros

Step 1. Define your perfect neighbourhood in a list


Start by jotting down a list of the desired lifestyle factors that are most important to you and your family. Remember to leave no stone unturned — consider location, proximity to work and schools, amenities and local attractions.

Step 2. Focus on an area that meets your needs



Begin your search in a community that meets your needs as defined by your list in Step 1. Looking to raise your children in a small town? Do you want to retire lakeside? Eager to dive into your agricultural business endeavours? This handy app may be a helpful starting point or click here to discover the amazing municipalities that, together, create the home we call Simcoe County.

Step 3. Get out and explore


While lists are helpful, nothing beats experiencing an area for yourself. Once you’ve narrowed down the most important factors, be sure to visit at least a couple of locations that match the description. Though one may look good on paper, in reality, it may leave more to be desired. The only way to truly determine what’s best for you is by seeing an area in person.

Click here and then click “Community” to learn more about events and what Simcoe County has to offer. We’ve even got useful information on the best private schools, day camps and where to get the best pizza, sushi or coffee.
