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.

Transportation

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.

Housing

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. This town also has a good selection of housing sizes; homes range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly 60% of the units in the town are occupied by homeowners and 40% are rented. The homes in this town are quite old, because about 45% of its dwellings were constructed before the 1960s, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 2000s.

Services

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. With respect to food, it is easy to access the nearest supermarket by walking in this town. A small number of restaurants and coffee shops are available as well.
