Regina real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere will enjoy Regina. There are over 300 parks close by for residents to check out, which makes it easy to reach them. The noise levels in this city are also quite low, as the streets are generally reasonably tranquil - although there are still several noisier sections, especially close to the airport (YQR) or one of the railway lines.
This city is an extremely good part of the Greater Regina metropolitan area for moving around by car. Parking is quite easy, and many properties for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway. However, the public transit network in Regina is not very accessible. Nonetheless, there are about 20 bus lines traversing the city, and bus stops are not very far away from most homes. Regina is not very conducive to those who travel by foot because most daily needs are inconvenient to carry out without the use of a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about two thirds of dwellings in Regina, and the rest of the properties are mainly small apartment buildings. This city also has a good variety of housing sizes; it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Homeowners occupy around 70% of the units in the city while the rest are rented. Roughly one third of properties in this city were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Primary schools are convenient to reach on foot from most houses for sale in this city. However, there are only a limited number of high schools and therefore they can be an extended walk away. In terms of eating, getting to one of over 100 supermarkets on foot is possible for some, but not all, property owners in this city. There are also a few choices for those who appreciate nearby restaurants and cafes.
