If you're looking to buy a home and you're not sure about the Neighbourhood or Street, take a walk through the neighbourhood and talk to people. Drive by first thing in the morning to see how many school buses are picking up children. You will also get an idea as to how long it may take you to commute to work during the rush hour. By speaking with people, you can get a sense of friendliness of the community, but also whether there will be any 'suprises' that only the neighbours know about, such as the "neighbours from hell", "haunted houses" and "former grow ops". Lets face it, there's always someone in the area that loves to talk, and will inadvertantley give you all the information you need to get a sense of the community.
