Location, Location, Location!

Choosing the right location is the most important decision you’ll make in your search for the perfect apartment. But location selection is influenced by a number of things, most importantly cost and lifestyle.


Different neighbourhoods have different standards of living, just as countries do. It’s important to do research about certain areas of the city or town and understand what it’s going to cost to live there. Rent will be one thing, but think about amenities, too. In more upscale neighbourhoods everything from groceries to parking will most likely be more expensive than in other areas, so if you’re on a tighter budget, keep that in mind.


No matter where you live, you’ll want to make sure you pick a location that meets your needs.

What’s the travel time involved to get to work? Do you need easy access to highways or bus routes?. What about conveniences? Think about proximity to things like dry cleaners, shopping centres, banks, and grocery stores.
If you have a family, where are the local schools and/or daycare facilities?

All of these elements will come together to create the perfect environment for you. So before you decide on a property or an apartment size, make sure you find the location that, to you, is your home.
