Niagara Falls real estate guide & listings for sale
Niagara Falls is good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are reasonably calm - although that is not the case around one of the railway lines, Queen Elizabeth Way or Highway 420. Green spaces are spread out sporadically, making them sometimes hard to reach. Despite that, there are over 100 parks nearby for residents to relax in.
The best method to move around in Niagara Falls is very often driving. It is especially convenient to come across a parking spot, and the majority of homes for sale are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 420. However, commuting by transit can be very difficult in Niagara Falls due to the service's low frequency. Thankfully, there is the Niagara Falls Station on the Lakeshore West Line. There are approximately 30 bus lines crossing the city, and bus stops are not particularly far from most residences. This city is not very well-suited for walking as very few daily errands can be run on foot.
In Niagara Falls, the majority of dwellings are single detached homes, while small apartment buildings and townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. This city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly 70% of the dwellings in Niagara Falls while renters occupy the remainder. About one third of homes in this city were built pre-1960, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s.
High schools and primary schools are not especially abundant in Niagara Falls, and consequently may be an extended walk away. In addition, families may find it challenging to get to daycares on foot. Besides public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools. When it comes to food, a fraction of residents in Niagara Falls may be able to do groceries by walking in one of over 50 stores, while others will have to use a vehicle. A limited number of restaurants and cafes are available as well.
