Langford real estate guide & listings for sale
Langford is quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case near Trans-Canada Highway or the railway line.
This city is very car friendly. The majority of homes for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and it is very convenient to park. However, Langford is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, there are approximately 30 bus lines passing through the city, and the closest bus stop is generally just around the corner. Travelling on foot is not very practical for residents in Langford because very few daily errands can be run without needing to use a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing about 40% of dwellings in Langford, while small apartment buildings, duplexes, and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. This part of the Greater Victoria metropolitan area offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 70% of the properties in the city are occupied by homeowners while the remainder are rented. Most of the housing growth in this city has occurred after the year 2000.
A portion of property owners in Langford may be able to reach one of about 20 supermarkets on foot, while others will need another means of transportation. A limited selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well. When it comes to education, it is a reasonably short walk to reach primary schools from most properties for sale in Langford. On the other hand, parents and their children may consider it difficult to reach high schools on foot. Apart from public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
