When you are shopping for a new home, one of your first considerations should be the neighbourhood around your home.
The crucial elements of a neighbourhood include its overall economic health, amenities and facilities, schools and universities, crime rate, stability, and, of course, pride of ownership – is it evident?
Will your neighbourhood and new home site have sidewalks? Often, sidewalks indicate how active the neighbourhood is and will be. An active neighbourhood – with walkers, maybe hikers, or kids playing – will likely be safer, livelier, and more enjoyable.
What about taxes and expenses; or future plans for expansion around the home? You need answers regarding these topics. You should also check out the sounds and smells in the neighbourhood; what the crime rate is or isn’t; what schools are nearby; and what type of public services are available and how easy is it to access such services.
At Starward Homes, the company takes care to look into all of these topics and more before beginning a project. “We take into consideration the amenities surrounding the neighborhood, the location, the crime rates, and more,” says Tara Smith, the marketing co-ordinator for home building firm that has been building in and around the Hamilton area for more than 100 years.
“We gather neighbourhood information and we make sure this is the location that will be best for the targeted market,” adds Tara. “We pride ourselves in finding the right neighbourhoods for each community.”
At Starward, it’s important to understand their target market for each site. Then, the company goes out of its way to find the best possible location in the best neighbourhood to suit their target markets.
“We want each person to love where they live,” Tara insists.
An example of Starward’s passion and dedication is it latest new home site – Country Ridge Estates, which offers two-storey single family homes and bungalows. If you haven’t seen it, you don’t know what you are missing.
The site has a country living feel, but is within five minutes of the city life. Amenities are at your doorstep, but you don’t have to live in the city to get the benefits.
“With a great view of green space and loads of amenities within just a few minutes drive, Country Ridge strives to give you the peace and quiet of the country – with perks of city living,” she says.
Starward also offers award-winning bungaloft town homes and single family homes at its Scenic Trails neighbourhood in Hamilton; new homes on lakefront lots at its Harbourtown at Erie Beach site; and freehold town homes at Heritage Point in St. Catharines.
