Portage la Prairie real estate guide & listings for sale
Portage la Prairie is good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier areas, especially close to one of the railway lines.
Portage la Prairie is very car friendly. It is a rather short drive to the nearest highway from any home in this city, and coming across a place to park is generally easy. Walking is not very feasible for house buyers in Portage la Prairie as very few daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
The large percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Portage la Prairie is an important part of its character. Roughly 40% of properties in this city were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This city also has a good variety of housing size options; it is quite easy to find homes ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly two thirds of the population of this city own their home while renters make up the remainder.
It is a rather short walk to reach both primary and secondary schools from most properties for sale in Portage la Prairie. Parents have the option of public and private schools at both the elementary and secondary school level. In contrast, daycares are not especially abundant and consequently not always within walking distance. As far as food is concerned, reaching the nearest grocery store on foot is feasible for some, but not all, property owners in this city. There are also a few options for those who care about nearby restaurants and cafes.
