Canmore real estate guide & listings for sale
Canmore is good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - however some areas can be quite loud, especially close to the railway line.
The favoured way to move around in Canmore is usually a car. Many homes for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, and parking is quite easy. Walking is not very convenient for residents in Canmore since meeting daily needs is difficult.
Around 45% of dwellings are single detached homes, making it easy to find detached homes in Canmore, but small apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. About one third of properties in this town were built in the 1990s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. This town is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 70% of the properties in the town whereas the remainder are rented.
High schools and primary schools are not very plentiful in Canmore, and therefore may require a long walk to get to. Likewise, parents and their schoolchildren may consider it very hard to reach daycares as a pedestrian. When it comes to food, some, but not all, property owners in Canmore will live within walking distance of one of about 10 grocery stores. A small variety of restaurants and cafes is available as well.
