Saint John real estate guide & listings for sale
Saint John is quiet overall, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case close to one of the railway lines or the airport (YSJ). Parks are sparse, making it rather difficult to access them. Despite that, there are around 30 public green spaces close by for residents to visit, including Rockwood Park and Irving Nature Park.
Driving is usually the preferred method of transportation in Saint John. The majority of properties for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, and it is very easy to find a place to park. Travelling on foot is not very practical for house buyers in Saint John because very few daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
About one third of homes in Saint John were built between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. In this city, roughly 55% of dwellings are single detached homes, but small apartment buildings are also present in the housing stock. Homeowners occupy about two thirds of the properties in Saint John while the rest are rented. This city also has a good choice of housing size options; it is quite easy to find homes ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
There are only a few high schools and primary schools in Saint John and accordingly they can be an extended walk away. Furthermore, it can be difficult to reach daycares as a pedestrian. Families can choose between public and private primary schools. With regards to food, some, but not all, home buyers in this city will reside within walking distance of one of around 40 grocery stores. A small number of restaurants and cafes are available as well.
