Portage la Prairie real estate guide & listings for sale
The noise levels in Portage la Prairie are low, as the streets tend to be quite peaceful - although that is not the case around one of the railway lines.
The car is very often the best method to move around in Portage la Prairie. It is very easy to come across a place to park, and many houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway. Travelling on foot is not very convenient for property owners in Portage la Prairie since carrying out daily needs is challenging by walking.
About one third of properties in Portage la Prairie were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this city is an important part of its character. About 70% of the population of this city own their home and 30% are renters. This city also has a good variety of housing size options; it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Both primary and secondary schools are convenient to access on foot from anywhere in Portage la Prairie. Residents are served by public and private schools at both the primary and secondary school level. However, daycares are not very numerous and therefore not always within walking distance. When it comes to food, accessing the nearest supermarket on foot is possible for some, but not all, home buyers in this city. A limited variety of restaurants and cafes is available as well.
