Many Barrie real estate agents focus on helping families purchase the perfect home. But this isn’t always fair to singles.
In order to find the best neighborhoods for singles in Barrie, we need to evaluate what singles want the most.
In general (although this may be different for you), singles usually like to party, to go to school, or to live in a quiet neighborhood. These are not exclusive options. You can be a single person who likes to party and go to school, or a single person who likes peace and quiet, but also needs to go to school.
Here is what you need to consider when sourcing an apartment or house before contacting one of our Barrie real estate agents.
The Downtown Core
Just like in every other city, the downtown core is where the fun happens! You can see shows, movies, go to bars and clubs, and more. If a quiet night out is your thing, there is nothing better than visiting a coffee shop and reading! All this can be yours in the downtown core.
The downtown core is often where many festivals, events, and attractions take place. While it is possible to drive into the downtown core or to take a bus to experience these things, the experience is so different when you are living in the middle of it. This experience is best experienced as a single person, and cannot be compared.
Georgian College Area for Students
If you are living in Barrie as a student, you can attend Georgian College. While the main campus is located in the North East of Barrie, living anywhere in Barrie is fine. You can drive practically anywhere in Barrie quickly. The transportation and roads are great, and you can drive or take a bus to anywhere in the city.
If you are not enrolled at Georgian College, Central Michigan University has a campus nearby as well. To consider all your options, contact Barrie real estate agents.
Quiet Residential Neighborhoods
Some singles just want a nice and quiet apartment or house to relax at after a long day at work. The best locations for these types of people are in quiet, residential neighborhoods. Luckily, Barrie is a quiet, family-oriented place, and Barrie real estate agents can help you find the perfect place. If peace and quiet are your things, Barrie will not disappoint.
It may be better for prospective buyers who want a quiet place to live to look outside the downtown core. Simply living in proximity to local bars and theatres may result in too much noise for your liking.
What Singles Need to Keep in Mind
Barrie is home to some great neighborhoods. However, instead of focusing primary on the absolute location of your house, focus on what that neighborhood offers you. If you like partying, consider living in the downtown core. If you like peace and quiet, consider living in a neighborhood with a lot of children’s schools. If you like are a college student, consider living near Georgian College or Central Michigan University’s campus.
