Kingston real estate guide & listings for sale
Kingston is reasonably quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case closer to the airport (YGK), Highway 401 or the railway line. Parks are sometimes difficult to get to since they are sparse. Still, there are over 200 green spaces nearby for residents to explore.
The car is usually the favoured means of transportation in Kingston. It is very easy to come across a place to park. In contrast, public transit users may find limited choices in Kingston by reason of the service's low frequency. Thankfully, residents have access to about 20 bus lines. A majority of the houses for sale in this city are located in places that are not very convenient for those who travel by foot as meeting daily needs is difficult.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around 55% of dwellings in Kingston, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. Roughly 30% of properties in this city were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About two thirds of the population of this city own their home while the remainder are renters.
High schools and primary schools are not especially abundant in Kingston, and accordingly not always within walking distance.

In terms of eating, a fraction of house buyers in this city may have the option to do groceries on foot in one of over 100 stores, while others will have to rely on another means of transportation. A limited number of restaurants and cafes are available as well.
