Scarborough real estate guide & listings for sale

Scarborough offers a slower-paced ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. The greenery in this former municipality is quite prominent as many tree-lined streets are present. Access to public green spaces, including Colonel Danforth Park and Rouge Beach Park, is very easy from the majority of locations within the former municipality, since getting to one is easy from most houses for sale and there are over 500 parks nearby for residents to relax in. This part of Toronto is quiet overall, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially closer to Highway 2A, Highway 401 or one of the railway lines.

Transportation

Scarborough will attract house buyers that appreciate a variety of methods of transportation. With many rapid transit stations with access to the Scarborough Line and Bloor - Danforth Line, and over 50 nearby bus lines, getting around by public transit is easy in this part of Toronto. A majority of the houses for sale in this former municipality are located in areas that are also reasonably conducive to those who travel by foot; many daily errands can be run without the use of a car. It is sometimes challenging to travel by bicycle in Scarborough because there is a considerable amount of hills, and there are a limited number of bike lanes.

Housing

Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about 40% of dwellings in Scarborough, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and townhouses. Around 40% of properties in this part of Toronto were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This former municipality offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about two thirds of the units in Scarborough while the rest are rented.

Services

Both primary and secondary schools are easy to walk to from anywhere in this area. Parents are served by public and private schools at both the elementary and high school level. In contrast, it can be difficult to get to daycares on foot. As far as food is concerned, it is typically an option for home buyers in Scarborough to do their grocery shopping on foot. Additionally, those who like to dine in restaurants will have a fair number of opportunities, for instance on Eglinton Avenue, and a limited variety of cafes can be found as well.
