Before choosing your new home...

When you begin your search for a new home here in Vancouver you probably look at where you want to live in terms of proximity to work, school, family, and places you like to go for fun.
 
Before you choose a neighborhood, there's one more detail to consider: The rules and regulations.
 
If you're moving into a subdivision, it will probably have a Homeowner's Association, or at least some covenants, conditions, and restrictions. And some of them might not be agreeable to you.
 
Some of the restrictions you might encounter are:
  • No pets, or not more than a specific number of pets.
  • No "unrelated" residents.
  • No parking of RV's or boats.
  • No overnight parking in your driveway.
  • No basketball hoops, trampolines, etc.
  • No bird houses or bird feeders
And then, there may be regulations regarding paint colors or the type and height of fences.
 
So choose the geographical area where you want to live, and before you choose the specific neighborhood, review the rules to make sure you'll enjoy living there.
