I like driving around, eating at local restaurants and talking to servers, hostesses. I like visiting attractions and talking to the workers there. I strike up conversations in stores and grocery stores especially.
The best way would be through hiring any renowned buying or selling agent in the proposed area like MLS Homes for Sale In Burnaby. The area covering market, restaurants, hospital might be the place place for buying any home at.This message has been edited. Last edited by: jamesmorris,

Research. Some of the most high end neighborhoods are plots of expensive homes....where no one is ever home, as they are out earning money for the mortgage/taxes 24/7. So it might be you prefer a friendlier venue. If you can visit and actually walk the neighborhoods you can often find out a lot about neighborhood friendliness and habits.
Homes are important...but your surroundings and neighbors can be a good match to your lifestyle too.
R.E.Lady, your picture is nice...but would be a whole lot nicer if not so LARGE?

Yes - we rented the last time we moved (to a city new to us) and knew so little about the city that buying just wasn't right at the time. We loved the neighborhood we were in, but ultimately needed the time to explore the area to find the right home.
I am one for driving around neighborhoods...after 5 when people are out. Houston has a great local forum for both real estate and chat. I've found it to be a wealth of information in my researching and finding good neighborhoods.

what helped us was a friend of my sister...while they lived on the other side of the state, he was a school board member and told us which dist. to look in...also, i've also maintained a certain distance for dh to commute from day one...it was a no brainer from the get-go...
