Description Glossary



A person with a social lifestyle would seek a neighborhood that fosters a vibrant and interconnected community with ample opportunities for socializing. It provides well-designed public spaces, such as parks and plazas, encouraging interactions and spontaneous meet-ups. Neighborhoods with this lifestyle feature diverse entertainment options, public transit, pet-friendly places, and local businesses that support the community. Walkability and inclusive environment enhances opportunities for social engagement and meaningful connections with neighbors.

Anti-social social

The ideal neighborhood for a person with an anti-social but social lifestyle would offer a serene and secluded environment with the flexibility to access social opportunities when desired, without feeling overwhelmed or intruded upon. It strikes a fine balance between personal privacy and the occasional need for social connection. It’s common for people with this lifestyle to want to be somewhere in the middle of a suburban and downtown lifestyle.


A neighborhood suitable for a luxury lifestyle features upscale real estate, exclusivity, prime location, privacy, and scenic beauty. Other features may include high-end retail, top rated schools and a sense of prestige to match the preferences and expectations of individuals seeking a luxurious living experience.


A neighborhood that appeals to an active lifestyle offers easy access to outdoor spaces like parks and nature trails, as well as bike-friendly infrastructure and jogging paths. Safety and walkability are essential, with well-lit streets and sidewalks. A health-conscious environment with access to healthy food options and fitness-oriented businesses is valued. Additionally, events and community gatherings that promote physical activity and a supportive, family-friendly atmosphere are attractive to those with an active lifestyle.

A neighborhood that appeals to an older demographic would provide accessibility, safety, convenience, social engagement, and opportunities for both relaxation and recreation. For example, a quiet and serene environment (less traffic), accessible to nature, dining options and close proximity to grocery stores, banks and other essential services. Affordable cost of living and age friendly infrastructure may also be a determining factor. A neighborhood that meets these criteria can enhance the quality of life and well-being of older residents during their retirement years.

Wide Open Spaces

A neighborhood for a person seeking wide open space would be situated in a more remote or rural location with minimal development.
