Portage la Prairie real estate guide & listings for sale
Portage la Prairie is fairly good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several louder areas, especially around one of the railway lines.
Driving is very often the preferred method to move around in this city. Most real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, and it is very easy to park. Many of the homes for sale in this city are located in places that are not very convenient for walking as running common errands is difficult.
About two thirds of the population of this city own their home and renters make up the remainder. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this city is an important part of its character. Around 40% of properties in this city were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This city offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
A fraction of home buyers in this city may have the option to do their groceries by walking, while others will have to rely on another means of transportation. There are also a few opportunities for those who value nearby restaurants and cafes. In terms of education, both primary and secondary schools are easy to get to on foot from most houses for sale in Portage la Prairie. Residents are served by public and private schools at both the elementary and high school level. On the other hand, daycares are not particularly numerous and accordingly may require a long walk to get to.
