For those in search of a home, either to buy or rent, it is well worth remembering one of the golden rules of property: you are not just buying or renting a house, you are buying into a neighbourhood.
In some small pockets around the city and county – little squares and streets off the beaten track, where demand is high – agents have a waiting list of buyers wanting something a little more than the obvious. And it is often the more modest houses that share a sense of community, hugely important in a city with a population density of 11,880 per square mile.
