Green Your Home and Save $$$ in Greater Vancouver (Part 1 of 3)

LOCATION
Choosing Where You Live
1 Green neighbourhoods
Buy a home in a neighbourhood close to work, transit, shopping, community centres and other services.
2 Transit-oriented density (TOD)
New, compact, complete green neighbourhoods are being built with transit as their focus. Instead of owning a car, join a car share cooperative, take transit, cycle or walk.
3 Lower Cost Luxury
If it’s features such as a gym or pool you want, buy a strata unit with these amenities and share costs.
4 Score your location
Walkable neighbourhoods offer health, environmental, financial and community benefits. Enter your address or the address of a home you want to buy at www.walkscore.com. This tool calculates a walkability score based on the home’s proximity to transit, grocery stores, schools and other amenities.
