St. John's Real Estate News and Information

Choosing a Neighbourhood in St. John's

It is important that the part of St. John's you choose to live in is well suited to you and your family. The following is a list of considerations and possible problem areas:

Environment
The quality of air, water and soil is a top concern as a polluted neighbourhood can be detrimental to both your health and property value. Ask your St. John's real estate agent, neighbours and local media about any known environmental issues in the area.

Appearance
The home you are considering may be tidy and attractive inside and out, but how does it compare to the surrounding area? Explore the neighbourhood, keeping an eye open for signs of neglect (overgrown lawns, houses in need of paint, trash and junked appliances littering yards). No matter how diligent you are in the upkeep of your property, a run-down neighbourhood can drive your property value down.

Crime rate
Check with the local police department to find out if the home you are considering is in a safe St. John's neighbourhood. The St. John's police may be able to provide statistics regarding break-ins and other crimes.
