Collingwood real estate guide & listings for sale
Collingwood is an excellent neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a relaxed atmosphere. This area is very quiet overall, as the streets are usually very peaceful. Finally, parks are very well-situated and there are a few of them nearby for residents to enjoy, which results in them being very easy to access from a large number of locations in this part of Calgary.
The preferred method to move around in Collingwood is usually driving. Coming across a place to park is quite easy, and most properties for sale are a rather short car ride from the closest highway. Homeowners can also rely on public transit to navigate this part of Calgary owing to about 20 nearby bus lines. This part of the city is not particularly well-suited for those who travel by foot because many day-to-day needs are occasionally difficult to meet by walking. Although bicycling is facilitated by the generally flat terrain, the bike is a rather poor mode of transportation in this neighbourhood since.
The predominant housing types in Collingwood are single detached homes and townhouses. Roughly 45% of properties in this neighbourhood were built before the 1960s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s. This neighbourhood offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Roughly 70% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 30% are rented.
