Columbia real estate guide & listings for sale

The character of Columbia is exemplified by its calm atmosphere. This area is reasonably good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however noise can be bothersome around the railway line. Lastly, although the neighbourhood is not home to any parks, green spaces are well-located in nearby neighbourhoods, which makes them easy to access.

Transportation

Columbia will appeal to active people as it is conducive to those who travel by foot; many day-to-day needs are easy to carry out by walking. However, travelling by bicycle is sometimes difficult in this area as the cycling network is not especially comprehensive, and there are a fair number of elevation changes to challenge cyclists. Public transit riders may have limited options in Columbia by reason of the service's low frequency. Thankfully, there are approximately 10 bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and bus stops are not very far from most houses. On the other hand, cars are a great transportation option in Columbia. It is very easy to park, and many real estate listings are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway.

Housing

About 40% of dwellings are large apartment buildings, making it easy to find apartments in Columbia, while small apartment buildings, single detached homes, and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. This part of the city has a good choice of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 85% of the population of this neighbourhood rent their home while owners make up the remainder. Roughly 40% of properties in this area were built between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 2000s.

Services

It is a reasonably short walk to access both primary and secondary schools from most houses for sale in this area. At the secondary level, there are both public and private schools. In contrast, families may consider it difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to eating, it is very often practical for house buyers in Columbia to purchase their groceries on foot. In addition, there are a fair number of choices in close proximity for those who appreciate restaurants and cafes. It is also easy to reach a variety of clothing stores on foot.
