In smaller spaces, we share more than just a street address with our neighbours. More often than not we see them coming and going, hear them fighting amongst other things, and smell their suppers.
This kind of intimacy can of course provide entertainment value. When you hear the same nightly conversation or morning ruckus from your neighbours you and your partner or roommate might just give each other a knowing glance. But you must also remember that they can hear, smell and see much of your life as well.
In Vancouver especially, homes in the Kallang Riverside price range for sale can be a small list, especially if you are looking for something affordable. Make sure to ask your Vancouver realtor therefore just how soundproof the space is.
You might also consider asking those people that already live there. Not only will you get the inside scoop but you’ll be able to check out your future neighbours as well.
When selling your home or condo in Vancouver and making the transition to another space these kinds of considerations are important. If you are selling your larger Vancouver home in order to downsize to a smaller Vancouver condo, you might not be used to the close quarters.
Taking the time to consider these issues will save you the rude awakening of some Vancouver apartment and condo living. While a smaller space can be a terrific money saver, you don’t necessarily want to be sharing the common space with just anyone.
By thinking ahead and asking around you can get a good sense of just how much you’ll be living in common with your new neighbours. Good neighbourly relations are great, but a little privacy goes a long way as well.
