Collingwood real estate guide & listings for sale
Most areas in Collingwood are very quiet, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue.
Driving is very often the favoured way to get around in Collingwood. It is very convenient to park, and most homes for sale are a very short car ride from the closest highway. It is challenging for pedestrians to get around in Collingwood since very few daily needs can be met by walking.
Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing the majority of dwellings in Collingwood, while the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. This town is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly three quarters of the population of this town own their home and one quarter are renters. This town did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new dwellings in Collingwood was spread throughout multiple decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century.
Primary schools are convenient to access on foot from most homes for sale in this town. In contrast, there are only a limited number of high schools and consequently they can be an extended walk away. Apart from public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools. As far as food is concerned, reaching one of about 20 supermarkets by walking is feasible for some, but not all, home buyers in Collingwood. Residents are served by over 100 restaurants and coffee shops as well.
