Central real estate guide & listings for sale

The character of Central is exemplified by its slower-paced environment. This neighbourhood is good for those who like quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near the railway line. Lastly, it is easy to access public green spaces from most locations within the neighbourhood since there are a few of them nearby for residents to discover.

Transportation

It is easy to move around by bike in Central since the cycling infrastructure is comprehensive. Central will also draw active home buyers since it is quite conducive to those who travel by foot; many daily needs can be carried out without the use of a vehicle. Moving around by car is very convenient in this area. Many real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, and parking is quite easy. On the other hand, getting around by public transit is occasionally difficult in Central. Thankfully, residents are served by approximately 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most houses.

Housing

Large apartment buildings are the predominant housing type, representing around one third of buildings in Central, while the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings and single detached homes. This part of the city also has a good variety of housing size options - it is quite easy to find homes ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The split between homeowners and renters is about even. About 40% of properties in this area were constructed pre-1960, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 2000s.

Services

Families will welcome that no matter where their property is situated in Central, schools and daycares are nearby. Residents have the choice between public and private secondary schools. Concerning eating, property owners in Central will be pleased to learn that a grocery store is always only a short walk away.
