How to pick a great home
First is location, location, location. This old adage is still true. The reason is that a lot of your home's value comes from the dirt it is sitting on. It is also important for liveability.  
 
Does this neighbourhood have good access to amenities?
What is the walkability score of the area?
Does it have proximity to public transit?
How easy is it to get on Anthony Henday Drive or St. Albert Trail or Highway 2? 
These are important considerations that your Realtor should be advising you on. You can also do your own homework. Check out some of these links:
