Dempsey real estate guide & listings for sale
Dempsey offers a slower-paced ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. This area is good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however noise can be bothersome around Highway 401 or the railway line. Finally, there are a few public green spaces close by for residents to visit, resulting in them being easy to get to from most locations in Dempsey.
The best transportation option in Dempsey is very often driving. It is convenient to find a parking spot, and most houses for sale are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401. In contrast, the public transit system in Dempsey is not very accessible. Many of the homes for sale in this neighbourhood are located in places that are not particularly convenient for walking because few daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle. Commuting by bicycle is also difficult in this neighbourhood because there are a good number of hills to challenge cyclists, and Dempsey has a quite bad cycling infrastructure.
