River Heights real estate guide & listings for sale
River Heights is a reasonably good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a calm atmosphere. Parks are very well-distributed and there are a few of them nearby for residents to relax in, which results in them being easy to get to from most locations in this part of the city. The noise levels in this area are also quite low, as the streets are usually reasonably tranquil - although that is not the case closer to the railway line.
Travelling by car is especially convenient in this part of Saskatoon. Parking is generally easy, and the majority of real estate listings are a short drive from the closest highway. However, public transit users may have few options in this area by reason of the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most homes. It is impractical for people travelling on foot to get around in River Heights because many daily needs are inconvenient to carry out by walking.
About 80% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and 20% are renters. In this part of Saskatoon, the majority of dwellings are single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. Most of the housing growth in this area happened in the 1960s and 1970s. This neighbourhood offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes.
Primary schools are convenient to get to on foot from any location in River Heights. On the other hand, this part of Saskatoon does not contain any high schools. As far as food is concerned, it is typically possible for home buyers in River Heights to do their groceries on foot. There are also a limited number of options for those who appreciate restaurants and cafes within walking distance.
