Thus, prior to making THE decision of acquiring a residential unit, one should also take a keen look of what surrounds your residential unit of choice.

Look and Feel/Amenities

The look and feel or the physical environment surrounding the neighbourhood is one of the essential facets which one should consider in searching for the right neighbourhood for your family.

While walking, one should carefully observe the serenity of the neighbours, the presence of a green environment, quality of the road networks and waterways and even the cleanliness of front yards, vacant spaces and common areas.
