Banff real estate guide & listings for sale
Banff is excellent for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue.
Banff is an extraordinarily convenient town for travelling by car. The majority of houses for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, and it is very convenient to find a place to park. Walking is not very practical for home buyers in Banff as meeting daily needs is difficult.
Banff did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new dwellings in Banff was spread throughout several decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century. In this town, roughly 45% of dwellings are small apartment buildings, but single detached homes and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. The split between homeowners and renters is about even. This town has a good selection of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Parents and their kids will welcome the proximity to secondary schools, which are within walking distance from most houses for sale in this town. On the other hand, there are only a limited number of primary schools and thus they can be a rather long walk away. When it comes to food, it is often possible for house buyers in Banff to do their groceries on foot. A small selection of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well.
