Dartmouth real estate guide & listings for sale
Dartmouth is a fairly good community to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere. Green spaces are easy to reach since there are over 150 of them close by for residents to unwind in. This part of the municipality is also reasonably good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite loud, especially near the railway line.
Dartmouth is very car friendly. It is especially convenient to access a place to park, and most homes for sale are a rather short drive from the closest highway. However, public transit users may experience limited options in Dartmouth due to the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, there are about 30 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most properties. Dartmouth is not very suitable for those who travel by foot since very few daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
Roughly one third of homes in Dartmouth were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. The majority of the housing stock of this community is made up of small apartment buildings and single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly townhouses. The proportions of homeowners and renters are about even. This community also has a good selection of housing size options - it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Reaching one of about 40 supermarkets on foot is feasible for some, but not all, property owners in Dartmouth. There are also over 300 restaurants and coffee shops in this community. In terms of education, primary schools are convenient to walk to from any location in Dartmouth. However, it can be difficult to reach high schools on foot.
