Cambridge real estate guide & listings for sale
Cambridge is a fairly good city to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced environment. This city is reasonably quiet, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - however some areas can be quite loud, especially closer to one of the railway lines, Highway 8 or Highway 401. Finally, there are over 50 public green spaces nearby for residents to visit, like Hespeler Optimist Park and Soper Park, resulting in them being easy to access from numerous locations in Cambridge.
Cars are a very good transportation option in Cambridge. It is very convenient to come across a parking spot. However, Cambridge is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, house owners have access to about 20 bus lines, and bus stops are generally nearby. This city is not very bike-friendly as riding is rendered strenuous by the often steep terrain, and this city is home to a rather limited cycling infrastructure. Walking is also not very convenient for residents in Cambridge since very few common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
About one quarter of homes in Cambridge were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. In this city, many dwellings are single detached homes, whereas the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. Homeowners occupy around 70% of the properties in the city and 30% are occupied by renters. This city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
Parents and their children will welcome that no matter where their home is situated in Cambridge, primary schools are close by. However, families may find it challenging for their schoolchildren to reach high schools on foot. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools. With respect to eating, a portion of house buyers in Cambridge may be able to reach one of over 50 grocery stores on foot, while others will need a vehicle. A small number of restaurants and cafes are available as well.
