Toronto real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a relaxed ambience will enjoy Toronto. The noise levels in this city are low, as the streets are generally quite calm - although that is not the case closer to one of the 3 airports (YTZ, YYZ, YZD), one of the railway lines, Highway 404 or Highway 407. Finally, the greenery in this city is reasonably prominent as the tree canopy coverage for the majority of streets is fairly good. There are over 2100 green spaces close by for residents to discover, like Tommy Thompson Park and E.T. Seton Park, resulting in them being very easy to access from a large number of locations within Toronto.
Toronto will draw home buyers that use a variety of means of transportation. Owing to plenty of rapid transit stations on the Yonge - University Line, Scarborough Line, Sheppard Line and Bloor - Danforth Line, and over 250 nearby bus lines, commuting by public transit is easy in this city. This city is also reasonably well-suited for walking; meeting day-to-day needs is easy on foot. Although a few pleasant sectors for cycling exist, Toronto is not especially amenable to biking because there is a significant amount of slopes, and Toronto is home to a sometimes poor bicycling infrastructure.
Large apartment buildings are the predominant housing type, representing about one third of dwellings in Toronto, and the remaining houses are mainly small apartment buildings, single detached homes, and townhouses. This city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly 60% of the properties in the city are occupied by homeowners whereas the rest are rented. This city did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new homes in Toronto was spread throughout several decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century.
The closest supermarket in Toronto is usually only a short walk away. Furthermore, there is generally a restaurant or cafe just around the corner. It is also a reasonably short walk to a decent choice of clothing stores. As far as education is concerned, daycares and schools are convenient to walk to from anywhere in Toronto. Parents benefit from public and private schools at both the primary and secondary school level.
