Mission real estate guide & listings for sale
Mission is fairly good for those who like quiet surroundings, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although there are still several louder sections, especially around the railway line.
Travelling by car is especially convenient in this neighbourhood. Parking is quite easy, and it is a short drive to the closest highway from any home in this part of St. Albert. In contrast, public transit riders may have few choices in Mission by reason of the infrequent service. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by around 10 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually very close. Travelling on foot is not particularly feasible for home buyers in Mission since few daily errands can be run without needing to use a car.
Mission experienced its biggest construction boom in the 1960s and 1970s, so most of the available housing is from this era. In this neighbourhood, roughly half of buildings are single detached homes, and the remaining dwellings are mainly small apartment buildings. Homeowners occupy around 60% of the dwellings in Mission and the remainder are rented. This part of St. Albert is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and two bedroom homes.
Property owners in this part of St. Albert will be pleased to learn that a grocery store is always only a rather short walk away. A small number of restaurants and cafes are available as well. When it comes to education, families will welcome that no matter where their house is situated in this neighbourhood, daycares and schools are nearby.
