Kitchener real estate guide & listings for sale

Kitchener is a good city to buy a house in for those who prefer a calm ambience. There are over 350 parks close by for residents to visit, including Kiwanis Park and Stanley Park Conservation Area, making it very easy to reach them. This city is also fairly good for those who enjoy quiet surroundings, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder areas, especially around Highway 8, Highway 85 or one of the railway lines.

Transportation

Moving around by car is very convenient in this city. Many houses for sale are a rather short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 401, and parking is easy. In contrast, public transit users may experience limited choices in Kitchener due to the infrequent service. Nevertheless, there is the Kitchener Station with access to the Kitchener Line. There are around 40 bus lines passing through the city, and bus stops are commonly nearby. This city is conducive to bicycling because the bicycling infrastructure is reasonably good. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for house buyers in Kitchener because few daily needs can be carried out without the use of a car.

Housing

Around 60% of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners whereas renters occupy the remainder. In this city, roughly half of buildings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. About 30% of properties in this city were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This city has a good choice of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.

Services

In Kitchener, families will usually be able to reach primary schools on foot. On the other hand, families may find it challenging to access high schools as a pedestrian. Apart from public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools. As far as food is concerned, a supermarket is generally reachable within a rather short walk from anywhere in Kitchener. A limited selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well.
