Amherst real estate guide & listings for sale
Amherst is very good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Cars are a great transportation option in Amherst. It is especially convenient to find a parking spot, and most homes for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 104. Travelling on foot is not very practical for residents in Amherst since meeting daily needs is difficult by walking.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around half of buildings in Amherst, while the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings, mobile homes, and townhouses.

Both primary and secondary schools are easy to reach on foot from most houses for sale in Amherst. In contrast, there are only a few daycares and consequently they can be a rather long walk away.
